In the tech industry, it’s important to get a gauge of what companies are paying and what other developers are earning. It’s important because the ranges attached to job descriptions these days vary so significantly that you wouldn’t even know where to begin in negotiation or understanding what’s a fair salary.
You’ll see what I mean about the salary ranges when you read this list. But I’m not here to answer the question of how much you should earn but to share which tech companies pay their developers the highest salaries. If you want one of the best-paying jobs in technology, I suggest you keep an eye on these companies (I’ll let you know their tech stack so you can start learning!).
Highest paying tech companies
We’ve grouped companies by industry/type. You can see that AI and Data companies are dominating the top ten. We’ll certainly see more AI companies emerging over the next few years and muscling out some of these legacy tech companies like Salesforce. It’s also a welcomed surprise that we don’t see more FAANG companies on the list.
Mashgin is a relatively unknown company based in Palo Alto. They create AI-driven self-checkout systems for retail and hospitality businesses. We’ve all used self-checkout grocery systems, they are trash — that’s where Mashgin comes in, using computer and machine learning to recognise products, making checkout a breeze. If you’ve ever been to Uniqlo, it’s a similar experience, no scanning, the computer understands what you have and rings you up. It looks like devs at Mashgin work with Python and C/C++ in a Linux environment. Software engineers at Mashgin have at least 8+ years of experience and earn somewhere between $250,000 and $600,000.
Everyone has heard about OpenAI by now. From what it looks like, on LinkedIn, they are in the process of scaling like crazy. There are 40+ open positions (mostly engineering). OpenAI has a bunch of products including the popular ChatGPT and DALL-E. They are hiring elite software engineers skilled in Python, TensorFlow, and PyTorch for their machine learning and deep learning projects. And the pay is quite good as well, salaries at OpenAI can range from $200,000 to $370,000, depending on experience and the specific role.
If you don’t know Airtable, it’s a software company that provides a flexible and powerful spreadsheet database platform for organising, collaborating, and automating various workflows. According to compensation.io, software engineers are getting paid between $228,000 - $323,000 a year. To work on the core product you’ll have to have 4+ years of experience in full-stack web development. Airtable’s stack is quite generic (AWS, Node.js, and SQL to React, HTML., and CSS) so it’ll fit with a lot of developers out there.
Datadog is probably one of the biggest companies on this list after Netflix and Salesforce. They are worldwide, so employment options aren't limited to just San Francisco. Developers are making anywhere from $130k to $300k per year. Looking at the job postings, Datadog prefers developers with experience in Go, C, or Python on the front end and Apache Cassandra, PostgreSQL, and Kafka on the backend.
VMware is a global leader in cloud infrastructure and digital workspace technology, providing virtualisation solutions and software-defined data centers. VMware is another huge company based out of Palo Alto with offices in almost every major city worldwide. They’ve got over 34,000 employees and a market cap of around $53 billion. According to recent job postings, software engineers working for VMware can earn between $154,000 and $277,000. A software engineer working at VMware is expected to know Go and/ or Java and be familiar with Kaftka, REST/JSON, gRPC/protobuf, Kubernetes, and Docker.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
