As virtual and augmented reality capture the world, it appears Atlanta in particular is catching up to the trend.
In a survey by job search site Indeed, Atlanta was ranked No. 5 of the Top 5 Cities for Augmented Reality and VR Gaming Jobs this week. Atlanta was one of two cities out of the five ranked that does not have a major gaming company and the only city mentioned in the South.
According to Indeed, the number of gaming job postings for roles requiring skill sets for VR and AR has increased by 93 percent since 2015, with about 17 percent of that growth happening in 2017.
Atlanta has at least nine companies dedicated to augmented reality and VR headquartered in Atlanta, according to Crunchbase and our own research.
