With 20 million unique monthly visitors and six million social media followers, the New York-based Mashable site is one of the most popular for social media news as well as developments in technology, entertainment and business.

The article says that STEM careers today are a far cry from the stereotype of a scientist hunched over a microscope and the list of top ten jobs includes a music data journalist, NASA curiosity driver, Tumblr product manager and a professional hacker.

Featured in the number three spot is 3M staff scientist Ray Johnston who invented 3M’s first consumer LED advanced light bulb that lasts for 25 years.

Ray trained as a chemical engineer and holds numerous patents. In the article, he says: “It doesn’t make a lot of sense that I’d be the inventor of a light bulb, but that’s the beauty of a science and engineering background... I like to say that I get paid to play.”
