AI Experts Can Earn Jaw-Dropping Salaries

AI professionals are cashing in on jaw-dropping salaries as companies scramble to attract qualified talent and embrace the tech. According to CNBC, the freelancing platform Upwork witnessed a whopping 9x surge in AI-related job postings last quarter compared to the same period in 2022.

The Wall Street Journal states that experienced specialists are a rare find, making them even hotter in demand. Brace yourself, because an AI expert can expect to earn...

Up to $900,000 per year as a product manager on the Machine Learning Platform team at Netflix, as revealed in a recent job posting (which coincided with unionized actors and writers striking over pay disputes and AI use in the entertainment industry).

Between $200,000 and $300,000 as an engineering leader driving efforts to develop generative AI models for content monetization at TikTok, based on an active Indeed listing.

And from $250,000 to $400,000 as a principal engineer of the AI platform at software company HubSpot, based on an opening posted on Linkedin.
