If you’re not quite doctor or lawyer material but want to make a killing, you could do a lot worse than get a tech job. Which kind? That’s what online jobs and recruiting marketplace Glassdoor reveals in a new survey of the highest-paying jobs in America. We’ve filtered out the nontech jobs like physician ($180,000 median base salary) and lawyer ($144,500 median base salary), which are Nos. 1 and 2, and go from there (though really, what isn’t a tech job these days?). Anyway, you can get complete results of the Glassdoor highest-paying jobs survey here. Results are based on salary reports shared by employees with these jobs on Glassdoor over the past year.
