From Mark Zuckerberg to your local IT professional, it’s no secret that tech pays. But how well? And what jobs pay the most?

The career data website Comparably recently sought to answer these questions. They surveyed over 12,000 employees in top-level positions, and produced a list of 10 highest-paying ones, with salaries all over $150,000.

While company vice presidents and directors make up the bulk of the richest jobs in tech, the story isn’t that simple.

In their survey, Comparably found that gender, ethnicity, and location factor into how well a given job pays. For instance, Comparably’s findings indicate that men make up to $16,000 more than women who share the same title. Women, however, were shown to make more than men in upper-level jobs in engineering departments, such as director and vice president.
