  • IT jobs and other tech roles are supposed to be in-demand and well-compensated.
  • But, when it comes to the realms of tech, IT, and software, senior gigs are still the most lucrative.
  • That's according to the salary data that LinkedIn put together in order to figure out which tech jobs earn the most money.

IT jobs require a special set of skills. So it's not surprising that IT, software, and other tech gigs have a reputation for being highly compensated.

But which IT and software roles snag the highest pay?

In order to find out, LinkedIn provided Business Insider with data collected through the site's salary tool, which asks verified members to submit their salary and collects data on wages.

The jobs all hail from the IT and software industries. C-suite titles were cut from the search. LinkedIn calculated median base salaries, as well as median total salaries, which included additional compensation like annual bonuses, sign-on bonuses, stock options, and commission.

While tech, software, and IT jobs tend to accrue high salaries, LinkedIn's findings indicate that the biggest pay days come with senior positions.

These 15 positions all make a median base salary of at least $100,000 a year. Bear in mind that the data is self-reported by users, so might be subject to some variation.
