Stack Overflow Salary Data

Nov 18, 2018 2 Comments

How accurate is stack overflow salary data? It shows US developer with 10 years of experience at around $140K. Why is there such a big difference with numbers I see here on Blind?

    Number on Blind are bay area, seattle, and nyc numbers and the high cost of livingpushes these numbers higher.

    The average salary of $140k is good if you consider it outside of these 3 areas.

    Also salary is just 1 part of TC. Dont forget to add bonuses and stocks.

    Blind numbers are for top 10 companies. If you include vast number of other software companies , you get a low median and average.

    Also, Blind numbers are on higher side as only high salary guys are sharing their numbers. Not everyone at Google or Facebook makes over 350k .
