Between its killer views, rich art scene and growing entrepreneurship, our Scenic City is a triple threat: ideal location, landscape and job opportunities. For longtime locals and those who’ve recently settled in the city, it doesn’t take long to feel right at home in the Chattanooga community.
Despite economic uncertainty during the pandemic, Chattanooga has thrived, leading USA Today to rank us No.10 for job growth in 2020, and PCMag to name us a top work-from-home city (we brag about this often!). All of these perks partnered with Chattanooga’s laidback, eclectic culture make for some amazing and unique job opportunities and great talent.
