The tech job market is strong and IT pros are reaping the benefits. According to the latest salary survey from Dice, salaries rose 7.7 percent year-over-year in 2015, representing the largest yearly increase ever. The survey also found that while the rate of those receiving bonuses remained steady, the amount of those bonuses rose 7 percent from 2014. Contract workers also saw positive increases in income during 2015, with a rise of 5 percent in hourly compensation.

It's no surprise that salary satisfaction for IT pros is increasing. For the first time ever, seven metro markets across the U.S. posted six-figure average salary figures for tech professionals. Silicon Valley once again posted the highest average salaries overall.
