What are the top paying IT jobs?
Percentage wise: the majority of job opportunities fall within the software development space.

Fortunately for those that are in the field, the gap in the market means high paying jobs. However, pay has been rising in the search for ALL hard-to-find skills that are in demand. The upcoming mass expansion in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) has led to a drastic demand for these professionals. AI/ML is projected to grow by 2.3 million new jobs within the next year. The average senior salary mark will soon exceed $200,000. Internet of Things (IoT) skills are also in increasingly high demand. You can not go wrong with Mobile engineering jobs for both iOS and Android.
