There are few more lucrative fields in the modern economy than the IT industry. Glassdoor’s recent survey on highest paying jobs is out, and it lists 11 of the highest paying technology careers in the United States.
Bob Brown writes, “If you’re not quite doctor or lawyer material, but want to make a killing, then you could do a lot worse than get a tech job. Which kind? That’s what online jobs and recruiting marketplace Glassdoor® reveals in a new survey of the highest paying jobs in America. We’ve filtered out the non-tech jobs like physician ($180,000 median base salary) and lawyer ($144,500 median base salary), which are Nos. 1 and 2, and go from there (though really, what isn’t a tech job these days?) Anyway, you can get complete results of the Glassdoor highest paying jobs survey here. Results are based on salary reports shared by employees with these jobs on Glassdoor over the past year.”
Among the jobs in Brown’s slideshow are:
- Data architect (median base salary of $113,000)
- Information systems manager (median base salary of $106,000)
- IT manager (median base salary of $120,000)
