Software development is becoming more wider and diverse as technology changes. Deciding what job-role to fill with respect to income is a bit puzzling for any individual.  Here, we'll examine the roles that pay the most in the industry, that is, roles that earn more money than others. It's worthy of note that not all software roles write codes and the complex mathematical computations.  As a matter of fact, research shows that the highest paying roles are more dependent on developer's experience. There are roles that only require the basic understanding of the technology stack and still pay more money than the more difficult roles.
