Jobs in Pasadena, California, United States

Location and Population. Pasadena is a city in Los Angeles County, located 15 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley, with a population estimated at around 142,000 in 2016. The ethnic mix is quite diverse: Hispanic (37%), Non-Hispanic White (36%), Non-Hispanic Asian (14%), Non-Hispanic Black/African-American (10%). Twenty-nine percent of the population is foreign-born. The median household income has risen sharply since 2000, reflecting the influx of high-tech professionals working in the city or commuting to downtown LA. At the same time, the cost of living is high, unemployment has increased and the poverty rate remains high.

Origins. In 1872-73 a group of investors from Indiana purchased land in the San Gabriel Valley as a haven for people with respiratory ailments. Pasadena was incorporated in 1886 and prospered as a tourist center and winter resort for the wealthy through the 1920s. Tourism declined during the 1930s, but the city held its own, thanks to the presence of the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), founded in 1891 under a different name.

Economy. During and immediately after World War II research and development at Caltech and its Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) paved the way for Pasadena to evolve into a center for industrial research and light manufacture of scientific and electronic precision instruments. Caltech and JPL are still the leading employers in Pasadena today. Between 1950 and 1970, other businesses moved east and new residential housing was constructed in the suburbs. An influx of black Americans and Hispanic immigrants seeking a better life settled in downtown Pasadena, where property values were declining. Local artists and hippies also moved into the downtown as property values fell. In the 1970s, freeway construction resulted in demolition of much of the low-priced housing in the city center, as well as many of the great tourist hotels. They were replaced by new condominium projects and commercial buildings, and a number of large corporations relocated to Pasadena. Concerned that the city’s heritage was being lost, local citizens led a movement to revitalize Old Pasadena, culminating in 1992 with completion of the One Colorado historic block.

Character. Pasadena today is a modern, rebuilt urban environment. The contemporary social and cultural scene builds on a combination of renewal of the best from the past, completely new artistic forms, and celebration of the different cultural traditions of the current populace, and the vision for the future balances growth with preservation.
