The Top 15 Tech Jobs for Work-Life Balance

By Dennis McCafferty  |  Posted 2015-11-19 Email

There's much to envy about IT workers: They're usually well-compensated. They're essential contributors to their organization's business strategies. And they often operate on the cutting edge of innovation, developing the "Next Big Thing" that everyone will be talking about tomorrow. But, among the many advantages of being a tech professional, did you ever consider … outstanding work-life balance? For most IT pros, it's probably not the first benefit that comes to mind, given the notorious hours and deadlines involved with tech professions. However, in a recent ranking of the "25 Best Jobs for Work-Life Balance" from Glassdoor, IT occupations dominate, accounting for three of the top five positions and six of the top 10. And tech grabs the No. 1 spot for the best work-life balance job: data scientist. Overall, tech roles account for 15 of the 25 jobs ranked by Glassdoor, and we're highlighting those here. Along with providing the work-life balance rating, the company also lists salary information and the number of job openings for each position that were recently posted on its site. To come up with the list, Glassdoor considered jobs with at least 75 work-life balance ratings contributed by the U.S.-based employee users of its service.
