10 fast-growing jobs that pay 6 figures and don't require you to come into the office full-time

 A full-stack developer is the best job for 2023, according to Indeed's latest ranking

This job has a six-figure salary per Indeed, and it may be possible to do this job outside of an office.

But this was just one of the tech jobs that ranked high on the list. Despite news of layoffs at major tech companies like Microsoft and Amazon, a post from Indeed about the new list stated that "tech jobs still dominate Indeed's list of best jobs for 2023," noting that the top three were all tech ones.

"I think one important distinction that we make when we're looking at things like our best jobs list is that we are seeing a lot of tech layoffs within traditional tech companies in the news recently, but that's not to say that tech jobs themselves are decreasing in demand," Kristen Shah, career expert at Indeed, told Insider.

"Most companies need software engineers, most companies need developers, data engineers, cloud engineers," Shah added. "So when we think about the demand for these roles, we really can expand the opportunities outside of traditional tech companies into banking, finance, supply chain, industries like that."

Shah said that the job site decided to release this year's ranking in January because "job seeker activity is actually up on our site during the month of January" as well as in February.

"So we really wanted to meet job seekers where they were and share a list of the 'best jobs' that are on our site according to the three factors that we outlined and what we think matters most to job seekers right now," Shah added. "And those three things are really focusing on opportunity, high salary, and flexibility."

Notably, all of the jobs that took the top 10 spots made over $100,000. For instance, the No. 10 job was product designer, which Indeed noted had a salary of $121,363.

Below are the 10 jobs that made the top of the list.
