Data Scientist is the best job in America – Glassdoor’s 2019 jobs report

For fourth consecutive year, data scientist was ranked as the No. 1 job in America by Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites. Glassdoor today announced its annual jobs report identifying the 50 best jobs in America for 2019.

The report highlights the best jobs based on each job’s overall Glassdoor Job Score, which is determined by weighing three key factors equally: earning potential based on median annual base salary, job satisfaction rating and the number of job openings. The jobs that made this list stand out across all three categories.

“There’s no question that emerging technologies designed to grow and scale business, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation are having an impact on the types of jobs employers are hiring for across the country. As a result, we’re seeing a spike in demand for highly-skilled workers in 2019,” said Glassdoor Economic Research Analyst Amanda Stansell.

“With such a healthy job market kicking off 2019, we’re seeing many of these Best Jobs open for people to apply to and get hired at employers across all industries and in all areas of the country,” Amanda added.

Tech jobs are the most represented with 19 jobs on this year’s list, down slightly from 20 tech jobs in 2018. There are 22 new jobs on this year’s list, including Security Engineer (No. 17, 4.3), Recruiter (No. 28, 4.2) and Brand Manager (No. 48, 4.0). The most in-demand job is Software Engineer (No. 10, 4.4) with 49,007 job openings and the highest-paid job is Software Engineering Manager (No. 43, 4.0) with a median base salary of $153,000.

    I’m not sure why but this website is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    technological world everything is available on web?

    It’s actually very complicated in this full of activity life to
    listen news on Television, so I just use internet for that reason, and get the latest news.
