The tech industry is a big industry.
But the salary range for people in the field is incredibly small.
That’s the key takeaway from this infographic, which ranks tech salaries from highest to lowest.
We looked at how different industries are paid, from average salaries to median salaries, to see if there’s anything that you can learn from it. 1.
How do people in tech earn more than $10 million?
1.1% of all tech workers earn $10.5 million.
That means that if you’re making $50,000 per year, that’s about 3% of your total annual income.
That figure is pretty much the average in the industry.
It’s less than 1% in the pharmaceutical industry, for instance.
1% of tech employees make $15 million.
About 20% of software developers make more than that, and nearly 20% are in the software engineering industry.
So, it’s a pretty large chunk of the tech workforce.
That might not seem like much, but it adds up.
It could be a major asset if you want to get into a top job, as it allows you to get more experience and build a bigger team.
1%, though, is still a lot of money for most people.
2% of people in Silicon Valley make more money than $25 million.
And about a quarter of those are software developers.
So it’s not clear how much that adds up to.
For those that are willing to take the leap and make the leap, there are ways to get there.
If you have the right skills, you can make a lot more money in tech than most people think.
2.2% of U.S. workers make more income than $30 million.
A lot of people think they can just go out and buy a house and live a normal life, but the reality is that the typical tech worker is already making a lot less than the median income in the United States.
2%, though is a lot.
The median salary for a tech worker in the Bay Area is $55,000.
And if you work at the company that owns the company, that is about $110,000 more than the average tech worker.
That number jumps to $175,000 for someone working for the same employer.
3.3% of employees make more in the finance, insurance, real estate, and investment (RE) sectors.
3% is the highest percentage of workers making more than what the median worker makes in any of those industries.
If that seems like a lot, it is.
About half of all workers in finance and insurance earn more.
They’re often in finance, but also in real estate and other industries.
3%.3% is actually pretty low, but still pretty high.
About 2% in realtor, or about 3%, are in finance.
That could be enough to help you get into an important role.
If your salary is at the high end of the range, then that could mean that you have some work to do.
The more you make, the better you’ll be at some things, but not others.
You’ll be better prepared if you are more motivated.
And it can be helpful to make some extra cash if you get a promotion, or you get hired for a position that requires more skills.
The good news is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to get ahead.
If a lot is at stake, it can pay to take risks.
You can also do something really nice and make a real difference.
If I were a young, highly motivated engineer working on a project with the likes of Facebook and Google, I could earn a couple hundred grand a year.
That would allow me to live comfortably and not feel like I was living on a shoestring.
It would be more than enough to buy my own house, buy a car, and get my kids into school.
But it would also help me learn a few valuable skills that could help me land a big-name tech job in years to come.
The rest of this post will look at the best tech careers for those in the same boat as you.
We’ll be updating this list with new tech jobs each week.
