I'm trying to move to a permanent role with a consulting company or product based company as an Salesforce Architect. So far I've been in contracting for a long time which made me unaware of the salary packages.

      What is the total comp? That is what matters more after bonus and stock.

    Salesforce CRM Architect base pay in non Salesforce company is 180-220k if you consider stocks and other then your total compensation differs.

    I joined my current company leaving Salesforce as enterprise architect focusing Salesforce implementation they few Certified architects reported me I was offered base 230 in 2014ish and total compensation around 510k.

    I hired few CTA and offered them 170k in 2016 195k in 2017 in Sunnyvale and TC differs they ended up make half a million as our stock shot up last few years

      The 180-275k is valid then based on exp and geo. With CTA, 300-400k is very doable.

      Hmm, are those salaries based on location. 300-400k seems to be west coast thing.

      Salesforce program architect director or above you will make that but can require CTA. Have seen it at finance companies and more senior roles at platinum partners. I am talking total comp vs just base alone.

      No way 300-400k for PA directors ..not even close. You can take the highest hourly billing rate and work your way backwards by multiplying the hours to calculate how much u will make for the company if you are billing every single hr throughout the year. Company will loose money if they pay u 300-400k yearly as an individual contributor.. basic math !!

      Even CTA don’t make that much.

    Salesforce architect is not necessarily an engineering architect.

    It's mostly individual contributor, I just started interviewing. I'm currently based in ATL, so not expecting west coast salaries
