DICE Tech Salary Trends

“The average tech salary increased 2.3% year over year to $111,348 (compared to $108,857) in 2022. Following a year of strong salary growth for tech professionals, the continued upward trend in average tech salary shows that tech skills and the professionals that provide them can still command high compensation because of sustained demand.

Digging into the data, you’ll see that non-traditional tech hubs are experiencing strong growth in average tech salary, supporting a trend of tech professionals moving away from employment in traditional tech hubs, like California, and opting for neighboring states, like Arizona (+20%). The data also reveals a trend of organizations prepared to pay for tech professionals with data-related skills to support infrastructure for the storage, transit and analysis of data.”
