Jobs in Pleasanton, California, United States

Location and Population. Pleasanton is a suburb of San Francisco located in Alameda Country on the East Bay. Its estimated population in 2016 was 82,270, of which 29 percent foreign-born. It is predominantly Non-Hispanic White (52%) and Non-Hispanic Asian (31%), with an additional 10 percent Hispanic and 4 percent Non-Hispanic Mixed Race. Median household income is more than twice the statewide figure, but cost of living is less than the statewide average. Unemployment and incidence of poverty are both very low.

Origins. Before it incorporated in 1894 as a trolley car suburb of Oakland and San Francisco in the Livermore TriValley, Pleasanton had a racy past. Between 1890 and 1940 the population remained stable at a little over 1,000 persons, and many Hollywood celebrities spent time there. Completion of the Bay Bridge in 1936 made commuting easier, and the population grew to around 4,000 by 1960. The TriValley urbanized rapidly between 1960 and 2000. In each decade, Pleasanton added around 14,000 to its population. To accommodate this growth, it expanded into outlying farmland and increased the density of its housing stock. The city continues to grow, although more slowly.

Economy. Pleasanton’s highly educated residents work throughout the East Bay area and many work in Pleasanton itself. In the 1960s and 70s, increasing cost of housing in the large cities forced people to move to the suburbs and commute, but traffic congestion made this difficult. As an alternative several business parks were developed in the suburbs. The first and largest of these was Pleasanton’s Hacienda Business Park, conceived in 1982 as a less expensive office space complex than those in Silicon Valley or San Francisco, coupled with affordable housing developments in the park area. Its location next to the Pleasanton/Dublin BART station also enabled employees of companies relocating from San Francisco to commute into Pleasanton for work. A number of nationally-known companies have made their headquarters in Pleasanton over the years. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory founded by the University of California in 1952, now a federally-funded research facility working on nuclear and basic science, is another important employer for Pleasanton residents. The Tri-Valley Transportation Council is now actively promoting regional transportation projects that will keep pace with the increasing number of dense housing units and corporate campuses being built, and facilitate connections between Silicon Valley and the wider Bay area.

Character. TriValley cities all possess a Mediterranean climate, scenic mountain ranges, vineyards, historic downtown areas, affluence and convenient access to San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco for social and sporting activities, restaurants and night life. Among them, Pleasanton is one of the wealthiest but also one of the friendliest. It is known as a family-oriented town with a very low crime rate, excellent schools, and many community events.
