Once again, technology dominates many of the top spots on Glassdoor’s 50 best jobs list.

In fact, tech jobs took 14 spots on Glassdoor’s 50 Best Jobs in America for 2017, more than any other niche.

Data scientist took the No. 1 spot on the career site’s annual list for the second year in a row. In the No. 2 spot is DevOps engineer, followed by data engineer. Rounding out the top five are tax manager and analytics manager.

“This report reinforces that the best jobs are highly-skilled and are staying ahead of the growing trend toward workplace automation. Nearly half the list is comprised of jobs within the fast growing technology, healthcare, and finance industries,” said Glassdoor chief economist Dr. Andrew Chamberlain.

“In particular for tech jobs, companies across all industries are hiring workers for these needed positions, including employers in health care, finance, manufacturing, retail and more. Any organization today with a mobile app, web presence or digitized data are struggling to fill jobs like data scientists, software engineers and mobile developers.”
