Cities That Offer Top Pay for In-Demand IT Skills

Did you ever wonder which cities offered the best salary packages for technology skills that are in great demand? If so, then you'll want to read the following list from Indeed's recent report, "Where Are the Highest Paying Tech Jobs in the U.S.?" The report ranks the 15 highest-paying IT positions with respect to the average adjusted salaries they command in 15 cities that are at the top of Indeed's tech job search destinations. The fact that the salaries are adjusted for differences in the cost of living makes an important distinction. However, no matter what the job is, it's clear that IT pros can command terrific compensation packages wherever they end up. "Since the global financial crisis, salary growth has remained sluggish for many workers in the U.S. and around the world," according to the report. "However, when it comes to tech roles, it's a different story. Here, employer demand continues to outstrip talent supply, and stiff competition for individuals with in-demand skills places upward pressure on salaries. Little wonder, then, that tech jobs often feature heavily on 'best-paid' lists." Indeed based its salary data on postings and reviews on its site, and adjusted the salaries using cost-of-living information from the most recent Regional Price Parities (RPP) data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
