Tech staffing agency Mondo has revealed in its latest Annual tech salary guide that Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) are the highest paid technology professionals for 2018.

Specialising in high-end and niche tech staffing, the guide was compiled using Mondo’s earning statistics across New York City, San Francisco, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Dallas.

According to the salary guide, CTOs and CIOs currently earn up to $292,500, followed by Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) who are paid as much as $275,000, whilst DevOps Lead/ Engineers are on $250,000.

“Salaries for technology professionals continue to increase with more than eight different positions now earning more than $200,000 a year,” said Gianna Scorsone, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales Operations for Mondo. “This year, in particular, we have seen a spike in salaries for DevOps Engineers and Ecommerce Developers.”

Whilst VR, IoT and AI specialists do not feature amongst the top eight highest earners, Mondo predicts that these professions will see their salaries rise as these technologies become more sought after and explored throughout 2018.

“Tech professionals with Virtual Reality (VR), IoT, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) expertise can expect to see salary jumps for corresponding titles as demand rises for these skills in 2018,” Scorsone continued.

This prediction is in line with a number of market forecast reports, such as the IDC’s Worldwide Semiannual augmented and virtual reality spending guide, predicting that the market for AR and VR will double to $17.8bn in 2018.
