Chief information officers and chief technical officers top this year’s list of highest-paid technology professionals, according to the annual technology salary guide released by Mondo, an IT and digital marketing staffing provider headquartered in New York.

CIO and CTO salaries range from $175,000 to $300,000 this year, according to the report. Chief information security officer ranked second, with salaries ranging from $175,000 to $275,000.

Artificial Intelligence and machine learning skills are in high demand, with AI developer and machine learning engineer salaries now reaching $200,000.

Technology jobs with the highest salaries of $200,000 or more in 2019 include:

  • CTO/CIO: $175,000 to $300,000
  • Chief information security officer: $175,000 to $275,000
  • Demandware developer: $127,500 to $237,500
  • Solutions architect: $155,000 to $220,000
  • IoT solutions architect: $140,000 to $210,000
  • Data architect: $145,000 to $210,000
  • Salesforce solution architect: $145,500 to $210,500
  • Database architect: $145,000 to $200,000
  • Project manager; $75,000 to $200,000
  • AI developer: $120,000 to $200,000
  • Machine learning engineer: $120,500 to $200,000

“Cybersecurity and IT security skills continue to net some of the highest salaries within technology departments,” Mondo CEO Tim Johnson said. “Salaries are expected to keep climbing as the talent gap widens, resulting in a projected shortfall of 3.5 million security-related roles by 2021. We are also seeing some tech salaries that remain flat for less competitive, yet necessary skill sets, like QA and network support.”

The technology salary data are based on Mondo’s placements over the past year in New York City, San Francisco, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Dallas.
