The biggest raises in 2017 will go to data scientists, who can expect a 6.4% boost in pay next year. That’s well above the average 3.8% increase that’s predicted for tech workers, according to new data from Robert Half Technology.

The recruiting and staffing specialist recently released its annual guide to U.S. tech salaries, which finds IT workers will be getting slightly bigger pay bumps than many other professionals. Across all fields, U.S. starting salaries for professional occupations are projected to increase 3.6% in 2017. The largest gains will occur in tech – where starting salaries for newly hired IT workers are forecast to climb 3.8%.

Robert Half Technology analyzed salary ranges for more than 75 tech positions based on input from its North American recruiting and staffing specialists. Here are the 14 jobs expected to make the biggest gains. Note: The projected salaries for each position reflect base pay only; bonuses, incentives and other forms of compensation are not included.
