Top 10 Most Always-On IT Jobs

No. 9: Application/Software Development

With only 33 percent of survey respondents saying they have no time for quality work and 26 percent saying they have no time to think things through, application/software development respondents, in comparison to other always-on jobs, are able to focus on their work and do their job well, according to the report. However, that's not to say that application/software development positions aren't without pressure. In fact, 87 percent said they agree that others greatly depend on their work. "The [company] I work for cannot run if their computers go down. Not even for a little bit. And they work around the clock," wrote a U.S. junior technical adviser in IT in the report. "So if something happens, I have to come in as quickly as possible and get the mess straightened out."
