Average Tenure is Nine Months

I’m not sure what is more surprising. There’s a dog-sitting start-up in Seattle called Rover or:

The average tenure of a developer in Silicon Valley is nine months at a single company. In Seattle, that length is closer to two years.

I’d like to see the source data on this assertion. Not the existence dog-sitting start-up part.
