While San Diego may be known for its stunning beaches and scads of fashionable art galleries, the city is also home to a burgeoning freelance scene.  While freelancers in all professions are experiencing an uptick in their numbers, engineers are excelling. Freelance engineers out-earned their single-employer counterparts by $20,000, according to last year's Global Flex Report. Over the last four years, the report also demonstrated, the number of companies who hire freelance workers has quadrupled.

As the numbers of freelance workers and start-up entrepreneurs continues to swell, more and more workers are becoming members of flexible coworking spaces that provide everything from spacious desks and complimentary coffee to rooftop wine mixers and paddle boards.
