If you are working in science, tech, engineering or math, better known as the STEM fields, you might have one of the top jobs of 2015.

CareerCast.com, a career site for finding job opportunities, released a list ranking 200 jobs by environment, income, outlook, and stress, based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The site gave each career a number rating in each of the four categories and then totaled them to determine the ranking.

Many of the jobs in the top 10 list overlap with the most in-demand jobs in Boston, which were also almost all STEM fields, such as financial analyst, systems engineer, and software engineer. Many of the most in-demand jobs in Boston require similar skill sets as the CareerCast’s top jobs, such as math, health care, and technology.
