When it Comes to Memphis Technology and Trained Workers, Demand Far Outstrips Supply

Tech901 is hearing a consistent message from Memphis-area employers: tech-trained workers are in very high demand here in the River City.

Having visited with many of the city’s top companies over the past six months, Tech901 is able to say with confidence that demand for tech workers far exceeds supply in Memphis.

“Whether it’s low voltage installation, technical expertise, or software development, the need is readily apparent from our conversations with employers,” offered Robert Montague, Tech901’s Executive Director. “This is why our Tech901 is putting a heavy emphasis on training, which is a critical path in helping companies find the talent they need.”

The technician area is one where there is particularly strong demand in Memphis. One local employer who seeks trained technician talent is FedEx TechConnect, which takes advantage of overnight shipping to offer its customers a fast option for any hardware repair need.

Other local employers who employ computer technicians are Jabil, Flextronics, Ingram, and Ritter Communications.

A second area where demand is high is software development, where employers are struggling to find sufficient talent to match demand.

“At ServiceMaster, our ServSmart technology platform is enabling growth by making it easier forcustomers to find us, buy from us and stay with us,” said Jamie Smith, chief information officer, ServiceMaster. “We’re always looking for top talent to join our unmatched network of experts, including corporate roles in IT.”

FastTrack'D Spotlight Blog FBServiceMaster is benefitting from the FastTrack’D training program at Cook Systems, which is a key, local partner to Tech901. FastTrack’D graduates are ideal for designing the applications that ServiceMaster is offering its customer base.


Tech901 has been in dialogue with the area’s top companies with regard to their need for software developers, including AutoZone, FedEx, First Horizon, International Paper, ServiceMaster, and St. Jude.
