These will be the top paying tech jobs in 2023

Even with instability in the market, the demand for tech workers does not appear to be going anywhere and neither is the industry’s trademark high compensation. 

Principal software engineer, engineering manager, data scientist, data modeler, and software architect are expected to be the top paying jobs in 2023, according to global jobs portal Indeed.

Additionally, the job roles that have seen the highest growth since pre-pandemic (January 2020) are data engineer (353 per cent), site reliability engineer (260 per cent), assistant engineer (254 per cent), application developer (235 per cent), cloud engineer (220 per cent). 

Despite the layoffs that were reported in the second half of 2022; technology job roles have taken up 15 of the top 20 titles in India, reveals Indeed’s Best Jobs of 2023 list.  

Developers have emerged in India as the most sought-after role (especially those that can design, develop and maintain the front-end and back-end of a web application) followed by software engineer, senior software engineer, application developer and full stack developer.

Other jobs on the list include java developer, software architect, front end developer, data engineer, engineer, software test engineer, business analyst, development operations engineer, project manager, technical lead, consultant, account manager, branch manager, senior developer and human resources manager.

This trend is not only seen in India but also globally. In Indeed’s Global Best Jobs of 2023 list, tech jobs occupy the top three spots - full stack developer, data engineer and cloud engineer,  an improvement from last year where only one tech job made it to the top ten. 

With large tech companies undergoing a period of correction, other companies appear to be ready to snatch up prime technology talent. This is largely due to the fact that tech roles have a larger volume of jobs as compared to any other job role. Technology roles are also sector agnostic, meaning that every sector has a requirement for tech roles. 

“Overall the year will continue to see tech roles hire the most. India is seeing a steady and stable growth and the short term impact of recession and layoffs are not likely to impact the future of tech roles in India. With increasing investment in IT and adoption of new age emerging technologies, job roles in these areas will also see a rise this year,” said Sashi Kumar, Head of Sales, Indeed India.

Additionally, technology jobs offer a lot of workplace flexibility as well as competitive salaries, both of which are qualities that jobseekers value highly. 

Indeed has compiled this list of best jobs based on availability (share of job postings), salary, opportunity growth (per cent change YoY), and the number of postings offering remote or hybrid working arrangements based on data from its platform.
