Tech Salaries for Product, Sales, and Marketing Roles

The scale of the IT industry is truly enormous. Every year, companies and individual consumers spend over $5 trillion on computer hardware, software, and services. That’s bigger than the GDP of more than 180 countries.

To offer some additional perspective, in our article breaking down IT spending vs. other industries, we calculated that Americans spend 19x more on tech than they do on beer, 66x more than they do on pets, and 229x more than they do on bacon!
