Glassdoor: 13 of the 25 highest-paying U.S. jobs for 2018 are in tech

Career website Glassdoor today released its 2018 report on the “Highest Paying Jobs in America.” Out of the top 25 U.S. jobs listed, 13 were in tech — two more than last year, and as always, more than in any other industry (health care was next in line, with five jobs).

Glassdoor’s list is ordered by average base salary. For a job title to be considered, it had to have received at least 100 salary reports shared by U.S.-based employees over the past year (similar job titles were grouped together, C-suite level jobs were excluded). Glassdoor says it also applied “a proprietary statistical algorithm to estimate annual median base pay, which controls for factors such as location and seniority.”

Without further ado, here are the U.S. tech jobs that made the cut:

  1. Enterprise Architect
  2. Software Development Manager
  3. Software Engineering Manager
  4. Software Architect
  5. Engineering Manager
  6. Applications Development Manager
  7. IT Program Manager
  8. Solutions Architect
  9. Data Architect
  10. Systems Architect
  11. Scrum Master
  12. Cloud Engineer
  13. Data Scientist

The first four tech jobs placed in the top 10 of the full list. Enterprise Architect was fourth overall, Software Development Manager took sixth, Software Engineer Manager grabbed eighth, and Software Architect snuck in at tenth. Last year, only two tech positions made it into the top 10.

Glassdoor’s report is based on what employees say anonymously about their employer. Job openings per job title refer to the active job listings on Glassdoor as of July 19, 2018.

Here is the full list of the 25 highest-paying jobs in the U.S.:
