The 25 Best Jobs in America: Tech gigs dominate Glassdoor’s annual ranking (GeekWire)

A new survey from Glassdoor finds that 46 percent of respondents are planning to look for a new job in 2016. And if they use the employer data site’s new list of the 25 Best Jobs in America as a guide, they’ll probably be looking in the tech industry.

Data scientists top the list of best jobs, with mobile developers, solutions architects, and software engineers all scoring high. UX designer, engagement manager, and analytics manager are new additions that weren’t present on last year’s list.

Glassdoor compiled the rankings using three factors: Earning potential (calculated with the median base salary), number of job openings, and a “career opportunities rating” provided by U.S. employees over the past year.
