Glassdoor's list of the best jobs in America might compel you to polish up your resume and look for a new career.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Which U.S. jobs are the best of all?

Now you can find out.

Career site Glassdoor just released its annual list of the 50 Best Jobs in America. The rankings are based on salary, employee satisfaction and number of current job openings.

For the second year in a row, data scientist has topped the list of best jobs. Nearly half of the list is composed of jobs in the technology, health care and finance industries, says Glassdoor.

Most of the careers that earned a spot on the best jobs list require a college degree or specialized training. Unlike many less-skilled jobs, these professions are also resistant to automation.

“This report reinforces that the best jobs are highly skilled and are staying ahead of the growing trend toward workplace automation,” says Glassdoor chief economist Andrew Chamberlain in a statement.

Here are the best jobs in the U.S. in 2017:

  1. Data scientist
  2. DevOps engineer
  3. Data engineer
  4. Tax manager
