    The Best Tech Jobs in the U.S.

    IT dominates Glassdoor's list of the best jobs in America, accounting for four of the top five jobs, including the top spot. And data-related jobs did very well.

As an IT professional, you may love what you do. But have you ever wondered how your particular position ranks among every tech job in the United States? If so, then you'll want to check out this list of the best IT jobs from Glassdoor. The list is compiled from Glassdoor's recently published "50 Best Jobs in America for 2017," which calculated an overall job score based on user ratings and feedback with regard to job satisfaction, earnings and the number of job openings on the Glassdoor site. Not surprisingly, IT dominates the list, accounting for four of the top five jobs, including the number-one spot. (Also, data-related positions accounted for three of the top five tech jobs.) DevOps, user-experience and mobile positions also made their way into the rankings. "This report reinforces that the best jobs are highly skilled and are staying ahead of the growing trend toward workplace automation," said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor. "Nearly half the list is comprised of jobs within the fast-growing technology, health care and finance industries. In particular for tech jobs, companies across all industries are hiring workers for these needed positions, including employers in health care, finance, manufacturing, retail and more. Any organization today with a mobile app, web presence or digitized data is struggling to fill jobs for data scientists, software engineers and mobile developers."
