Do you think you have the best IT job around? If so, you may want to check to see if your job made the following "Ten Best Tech Jobs in America" list from Glassdoor, compiled from the top 25 list of best overall jobs on the online career community site. The company came up with the ranking based on the following three key factors, which we've included below: earning potential, number of job openings and career opportunity rating. (The third factor was based on at least 75 career opportunities ratings that were provided by U.S.-based employees over the past year.) Not surprisingly, the list reflects many of the hot industry niches that we've reported on previously, including software development, big data and analytics, network oversight, mobility and IT project management. As companies face increasing competition for top tech talent, IT professionals who perform these roles should expect greater prospects for rewarding assignments, career growth and (of course!) generous compensation. "It's no surprise that we see many tech jobs on [our top 25] list—the most of any industry—with such rapid growth and demand in the market," says Scott Dobroski, career trends analyst for Glassdoor.
