Jobs in technology and healthcare sectors are among the top paying jobs in the US, finds a new survey released by the career website Glassdoor.

Out of the highest 25 paying jobs, 11 are from the tech industry, the survey added. The Glassdoor survey conducted on job titles with more than 100 salary reports shared by the US-based employees over the past year starting February 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017.

To ensure the most reliable median base salary for all job titles, Glassdoor also applies a proprietary statistical algorithm to estimate annual median base pay, which controls for factors such as location and seniority. This report takes into account job title normalisation that groups similar job titles. The survey also noted that the C-suite (chief) level jobs were excluded from it.
