The 10 Best Tech Jobs in America
You may think you have a great IT job, but does it rank among the best in the country? To find out, check out the following list of the best tech jobs in America from Glassdoor. The jobs were compiled from the company's annual "25 Best Jobs in America" report, which covers vocations of all kinds, including technology. You will probably feel encouraged by the fact that IT positions account for 10 of the top 25 job titles, and three of the top five—not to mention grabbing the No. 1 spot. It's not surprising that most of the IT roles here require skills that address the hottest tech trends and demands of the day, including big data/analytics, mobility, software development and user experience. Of course, that bodes well for continued career development and advancement, as well as compensation growth, for professionals with those skills. Glassdoor based its list on job titles that generated at least 75 salary reports and the same number of career opportunities ratings from users on the site. The job score is based on user assessments of earnings potential and career opportunities, as well as the number of openings posted on Glassdoor. As part of its research, the company includes salary information about each position, and we've included that information here.
