Senior Java Developer TC in Atlanta ?

Dec 3, 2018 14 Comments

I have had a recruiter contact me from Salesforce for a Sr. Java Dev position in their Atlanta location.

She mentioned that the max TC for the position is 130K + 10% bonus, no RSUs.

I recently moved to Atlanta from Boston and have no idea about the market. Is that a good salary in Atlanta for my experience?

    I’m a recruiter in Atlanta - that’s pretty low for 11 years of experience at a company like SFDC

      What is salesloft paying for somebody at senior or principal level at Microsoft? 15 yoe. You guys are still a rails shop, right?

    Not horrible for Atlanta but you can do much better if you're really a senior. Square is paying much more there. Pandora and Opendoor will also beat that by a mile. I'm pretty sure even many non tech companies will.

    10% Bonus is for SMTS, right? That offer sounds ok cash wise for Atlanta but you should definitely ask for RSUs.

      I thought LMTS was 15%, maybe SMTS is too.

      Wow that's super high, like a lot of LMTS don't even make quite that much. Can you provide breakdown of offer and which cloud it was? Did you take it?

      Sure. It was 190K base, 200K RSU for 4yrs, 15% bonus, 50K sign on/2 yr, 15K relo. I did have a strong compete offer from one of their competitor though.

      Nice! Also curious do you have any specialties like AI/ML? Or was this like a generalist backend or front end role?
