The Five Best Tech Jobs

Careers in the tech industry are continuing to grow at an unprecedented rate. Several up-and-coming tech companies, such as Evisort with their new site, have gone into hiring overdrive. As technology continues to race forward it creates jobs in industries that did not exist just a few years ago. One of the best examples is the rapid expansion of AI (artificial intelligence), and the impact it is having across various fields and industries.

Classifying the five best jobs is not an easy task, as there are a large number of factors that determine a terrific career path. The jobs on this list are among the fastest-growing, have great advancement potential and those in the field report high levels of job satisfaction.

Data Scientist

This was named the best job in America in 2019, by Glassdoor’s annual report. Data science is a broad and varied field. Jobs in this field range from studying the impact machine learning has on business decisions in major corporations to using data science in the trucking industry. In 2019, jobs were up 29% in this field. Starting salaries are average close to $100,000 annually.

Software Engineer

Software engineers remain among the most sought-after employees. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation across various industries means there is no shortage of career paths for those in this field. Average starting salaries are reasonably high, but its the seemingly unlimited earning potential for those who are working on the most cutting edge products, that really draw new people to the field. For instance, a legal tech company called Evisort was allocated 4.5 million in seed money from Village Global. Village Global had a similar investor partnership with such names as Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook and Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon. Evisort was co-founded by Amine Anoun, Jake Sussman and Jerry Ting. Ting was the primary software engineer that designed the initial framework.

Data Engineer

Data engineers are those who prepare the data used by a data scientist. The job itself is somewhat of a hybrid between data scientist and data analyst. Data engineering may not seem glamours, as it is more of a behind the scenes role, but they are becoming more and more in demand. From database design to comparative analysis of stored data, these engineers are a key part of what is making the advancements in big tech possible. With a national average salary of $116,000 they are among the most well-paid engineers.

Software Architects

This area of expertise is experiencing ever-increasing demand on a fairly small work-force. That translates to high earnings for those who can do the job and do it well. They are experts at software development and dictate the technical standards. They must be able to read and write code at the highest level, as well as be creative and open-minded. Software architects are usually the go-between for a company’s tech unit and non-technical management. There is no “starting salary” as this is the type of position that generally requires a high level of experience. Average salaries start at about $124,000.

Computer Systems Analyst

In its most simplified form, a computer system analyst looks at a company or corporations current computer system and procedures and identifies issues and designs solutions to increase efficiency and effectiveness. This technology job stays on the top of many lists of best tech jobs. With a median salary of $88,000, this is another career where the industry is scrambling to churn out enough computer system analyst to keep up with demand.

These five jobs are just a few of fast-growing careers in the tech industry. In the current climate, if you are good at what you do, you should not have to worry about job security. The demand for these types of jobs is consistently outnumbering the available experienced personnel to fill them.
