PHOENIX -- Arizona has added 8,600 jobs from December 2013 to January 2014.

AZ Tech Beat reported that only Texas and Ohio had larger growth -- 33,900 and 16,700 jobs, respectively -- making Arizona the third largest in job growth so far this year.

Phoenix has quickly become the location for information and technology companies to grow, as Apple, GoDaddy, Cox and State Farm all do business here. Phoenix has also been announced as a candidate for Google Fiber.

"Over the last five years, Arizona has developed one of the most robust technology entrepreneurial ecosystems in the country," said Steven Zylstra, president & CEO of the Arizona Technology Council.
