The future of Canadian jobs may be in the technology sector, according to Indeed Canada.

The job site released its rankings of the top 10 best jobs in Canada, curated by the number of job postings, salary and growth opportunity. Eight of these jobs were tech-related, with Full Stack Developer (those comfortable with tech positions in the front and back end), DevOps Engineer and Back End Developer making up the top three positions.

The Ten Best Jobs of 2017

“Canada is a booming hub for tech innovation, and the demand for workers with highly technical abilities is increasing far faster than supply,” said Indeed senior vice president Paul D’Arcy in a press release. “The result is a rapid growth in open, unfilled jobs and increases in salaries for the talent that can fill these roles.”

The list was compiled with jobs that provide a salary of at least $70,000 and displayed consistent growth in share of postings from 2013-2016.

Some of the highest paying tech positions that made the list include DevOps Engineer (at #2), Android Developer (at #5) and Python Developer (at #10).
