That the wage gap persists in the tech industry is pretty well known, but breaking it down by job function, age, race and other criteria makes it all the more blatant and frustrating.

Comparably, which keeps tabs on pay in the job market, has broken down salaries every which way, helping to show women the cities, job functions, companies and more where they will make the most money. In its latest breakdown, it shows the average pay per job title, derived from a survey of 10,000 employees in the tech industry. (See Mind the Gap: Is Public Shaming the Way to End Pay Inequity?)

Men come out ahead in all but two categories: PR manager and vice president of engineering roles.

Check out the infographic below to see how men and women compare in a number of titles, and check out Comparably.com to see more enlightening statistics on wages in the workforce.

Re: pay gaps
Ha, true. We clearly should've been engineers rather than just write about them...

Re: pay gaps
I was wondering that too. No idea why female engineering VPs would be paid more. It's all pretty depressing compared to editorial though! ; (

pay gaps
Interesting (or infuriating) that men are paid signfiicantly more in fields like marketing and HR that traditionally have more women in them. And, women make more as VPs of Engineering, where there are traditionally more men. Not sure why that would be. Any thoughts?
