Want a job that doesn't essentially require sleeping under your desk? (DON'T WE ALL.) According to job-listings site Glassdoor, there are 25 gigs with *particularly* great hours you should have on your radar.

Glassdoor asked reviewers to rate their sense of work/life balance on a scale of 0 to 5, and they found that people are feeling less and less balanced every year. Back in 2009, the average rating was a 3.5, but now it's a 3.2. There are, though, jobs where employees rate highly—like data scientists, who had the highest work/life balance rating at 4.2 out of 5, and the highest salary on the list, with a whopping $114,808. 

Here's the top 10, and you can see the full 25 at Glassdoor's website

  1. Data scientist
  2. SEO manager
  3. Talent acquisition specialist
  4. Social media manager (Editor's note: Our social media manager cackled when he saw this. Take that as you will.)
  5. Substitute teacher
  6. Recruiting coordinator
  7. UX designer
  8. Digital marketing manager
  9. Marketing assistant
  10. Web developer
