2. Data Scientist
According to the report on IT salaries, a data scientist in the 25th percentile typically earns $100,000 per year, while someone in the 50th percentile earns $119,000, and someone in the 95th percentile makes $168,000.
The pay might seem attractive, but becoming a data scientist isn't easy. Most data science jobs require an advanced degree — at least a masters, but sometimes a PhD. Candidates also need several years of experience, as well as knowledge of both business fundamentals and technology. "Citizen" data scientists are becoming more common, but these roles typically don't pay as well as those that have more exacting requirements.
