- Salesforce PrldjcjeMajority of NOVA tech jobs relate to government contracts. TC is $100k to up to $250k with experience typically. Amazon will for sure be a top dog and steal all the talent. Will be interesting to what it does to Lockheed, Northrup, Raytheon. They are going to need to get a lot more competitive...
- FiscalNote / Eng wxcv44Govt contracting pays a lot to do a small amount of work over a long period of time. Amazon will not convince those people to leave their comfy jobs.
Tech companies in the area need to compete, and it looks like Amazon is starting out in 2019 at average salary of $150k and adjusting for inflation over time.
- Nielsen / Eng userpersonmoreDoubt it'll compete with Seattle. Probably will be Boston/Chicago tier. Not like anybody in the area has much of any other option.
- It will be the same as Seattle. Amazon has discount, standard, and premium market tiers in the US. Almost everything that’s a major city is Standard market, including Seattle, despite it having a high cost of living. NYC is a premium market, Bay Area is a premium market. I don’t know what big city is a discount market, not sure if I can find out... Chicago and Boston are assuredly not, maybe Detroit?
