Full Stack Developer, DevOps Engineer and Back End Developer Top the

Canada’s number one job site, released today the best jobs of 2017.
Eight of the top ten jobs included are tech-related with Full Stack
Developer, DevOps Engineer and Back End Developer rounding off the top
three. Indeed curated the list based on number of job postings, salary
and growth opportunity.

“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. “The result is a rapid
growth in open, unfilled jobs and increases in salaries for the talent
that can fill these roles.”

Many of the technical roles included offer high salaries and an
ever-increasing number of job postings. Some of the highest paying tech
positions ranked in the top ten include DevOps Engineer (#2), Android
Developer (#5) and Python Developer (#10).

“While tech dominates many of the top positions for employer demand and
competitive pay, the list also contains some surprises,” said D’Arcy.
“Demand for Real Estate Agents has increased by 36 per cent and in
healthcare, we find that Optometrists are in high demand.”
