Software Developer Career Information : Software Developer Salary


A typical entry level software developer,
here in the valley, probably makes around 80 or 90 thousand dollars a year, out of school.
And typically you get- at first, like first 4 or 5 years of your career you get larger
raises because you are- your career is- you’re learning a lot and your and you’re improving
typically very quickly in those first 4 or 5 years of your career, so you would get raises
probably around 8 to 10 percent per year. And a senior software developer makes around
140, 150 thousand a year, at architect level could make up to 150 thousand dollars a year.
But salary is actually not the main source of income; I mean it is the main source of
income, but we do have a lot of alternatives sources of income, like bonuses and stock
options. If you work for a startup software company you could get up to, you know a certain
percentage of the company in stock options. And if the company goes public, or it’s bought
by another company, that could be very, very lucrative in the long run.
