An alumna of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, Becky Catino has served as the co-CEO of a specialty auto finance company in Mason, OH. Today, Becky Catino is the co-founder and co-CEO of GigSmart, a mobile-based platform that matches employers with workers in the gig economy.
Which jobs are commanding the highest wages in the gig economy? Fitsmallbusiness.com sought to answer this question in a recent study. From its findings, it is clear that technology-related jobs command the highest earnings, underlying the fact that gig workers with deep skills and expertise in high-demand fields can enjoy attractive compensation while still working flexibly.
According to the research, the highest earning gig job was in deep learning/artificial intelligence, which garnered an average compensation of $115.06/hour. It was followed by those skilled in blockchain architecture ($87.05/hour), robotics ($77.48/hour), ethical hacking ($66.33/hour), and cryptocurrency ($65.37/hour).
Notable mentions in the top 10 were Final Cut Pro editing ($37.12/hour) and Instagram marketing ($31.23/hour). Final Cut Pro X is Apple’s video editing software, while Instagram is a social media site focused on sharing images and short videos. While the two gig jobs do require computer knowledge, they are not the preserve of software engineers. That means they can be learned by many people and can open the door to high wages.
These skills and more can be added to your Worker profile in the GigSmart app. Coming soon to the App and Google Play store.
