The highest-paying job in demand is a physician, with an average annual base salary of $212,270, but software architects aren't far behind ($130,891), and software development managers ($123,747) are right on the heels. The job most in demand is software engineer at 23 with a base salary of $96,392 and a staggering 99,055 openings — more than double that of the next highest-paid in-demand job.
Other tech jobs in the top 25 include solutions architect at 6; analytics manager at 8; and IT manager at 9. But rest assured, although there is great demand, these positions are hard to fill as most require a high level of experience, skills, and education.
