250k remote jobs?

Jan 22, 2019 14 Comments

I’m in the southeast making about 180k tc working as an Advisory Solutions Architect. I work from home with some travel and I’m wondering what I should focus on doing to move into the 200k+ area. I have 14 years experience with networking, virtualization, and security. I had some VMware, Cisco and other certs but they have all expired.

Note- I’m not in sales but definitely open to it.

    I'm at 300k TC living remotely, I live in a fucking mansion and I cry for my colleagues when I visit them in the Bay Area

      I don't want to give too much information to identify myself, but basically you have to get staff or above while working in the Bay Area and then transfer out. I think this equates to L5 Facebook

      Are you a software engineer? I ask because I’m trying to get a feel for how feasible this would be for someone with my experience. I’ve done coding throughout my career but that hasn’t been my focus.

      Is it fairly common to get approved for remote after a couple years with the company and making staff or L5?

      If you get certified technical architect (CTA) you can demand higher than 300k. But most people have a chunk of the pre-req certs and are in 200-300k as they work towards CTA. For sure want an employer to be paying for these as the test fees add up...
