More good news for people who want to move to Austin— job site Glassdoor says the city is one of the best for job searching.

Austin placed sixth on its list of 25 Best Cities for Jobs, a list which ranks cities based on how easy it is to get a job, cost of living, job satisfaction and work-life balance. The information used to rank the cities comes from Glassdoor’s job listings.

Austin earned a 3.3 overall (on a 5-point scale) for its 45,186 job openings, median base salary of $61,000 (as reported by Glassdoor users), and job satisfaction rating of 3.4. According to Glassdoor, the “hot jobs” in Austin are creative director, finance manager and solutions architect.

Austin’s taco-warring neighbors to the south, San Antonio, made the list at No. 20. San Antonio is the only other Texas city on the list.

If you really want work-life balance and job security, however, head to San Jose. It topped Glassdoor’s list with a 4.0 score.
