The end of the year is often a time for reflection and planning what the new year will bring. Part of that looking ahead is thinking about your career. If you're looking for a pay bump - and who isn't? - it's worth taking a look at what sorts of roles are bringing in the most cash. And, even if you're not ready for one of those roles now, maybe 2019 can be the year when you lay the ground work so you can jump in the third decade of the millennium with a fat pay packet.

The research, from jobs site Indeed revealed that, based on their data, the highest paying riles aren't always senior management gigs. That's good news as the number of those roles is typically lower and can be a little harder to access for many people.

Here's Indeed's top 10 IT jobs.

Job Title Average Salary Median Salary
Business process analyst $181,720 $193,700
Software engineering manager $142,145 $155,000

Interestingly, looking through the next 50 or so positions, developer roles with skills in Python, .net, Ruby, Java and Javascript all pay in excess of $100,000. Analyst roles fill most of the $80,000 to $100,000 roles with support roles starting at around $60,000 per year.
