Tech-related jobs, in general, continue to be winners. Indeed set out to find the top 25 jobs for 2019 in their report and nine of them are comprised of tech roles.

Roles such as software developer continue to rank highly due to a high number of job openings, but machine learning engineer roles claim the number one spot due to higher salaries and faster growth.

A second AI-related job sits just outside the top 10. At number 13, ‘Computer Vision Engineer’ has a higher average base salary ($158,303)  than a machine learning engineer, but is ranked lower due to slower growth (116%).
