Data source: Robert Half Technology
There was far more movement when you look at the job titles that had the biggest salary increases in 2012 compared to those with experiencing big increases in 2017. In fact, none of the titles on the two lists are the same. Back in 2012, mobile developers saw a whopping 9.1 percent increase in average salary, but they didn't make the list in 2017. Instead, data scientists top the chart with a 6.4 percent increase. And, in keeping with other hiring trends, two of the IT job titles with the biggest increases for 2017 are related to security, whereas security didn't make the list five years ago.
