What are the highest software developer salaries in 2018 and what skills do they require?

What are the most lucrative developer positions on the market right now -- and just as importantly -- what skills do you need to land one?

It seems like dozens of clickbait articles on this topic fall into the same trap: a list of generic, mostly meaningless job titles, all based off the same one data set, and averaged salary data from such a broad location set that there really isn't any insight to pull out.
