The average tech worker in Seattle makes $158,000, a 4.6% increase from last year, according to new data from jobs site Hired.

Seattle commands the second-highest average tech salary in the U.S. behind the Bay Area ($165,000), which saw its average decrease 0.3%. Seattle was ahead of New York ($151,000, down 1%), Los Angeles ($149,000, up 2.3%), and Boston ($147,000, up 1%).
