    Try Redfin, they have a Frisco office, 15-20 mins from Dallas that we’re hiring aggressively in. PM me for more info if you want. We’d pay more than 145k for 9 YOE there

      I don’t kno Dallas number unfortunately, but I know San Francisco numbers are quite competitive. Senior eng in SF probably between 250-350 I think

  • It's a good income for Dallas. Nothing wrong in trying to get it up though. Dallas is very affordable.

    Some people say 145 is very less for that experience in Dallas is it true?

      That's your call. People on this app chase TC. If 145 takes care of your family and you're able to work 40 hours or less a week, travel with family, great benefits, and lots of PTO/Vacation then yes. If you want TC then no not worth it.

      At the end of the day, it's all about what you value.

    That's a great /salary/ for the region. No issue on housing, schooling, etc. Lifestyle will be comfortable.

      Between my wife and I, we pull ~$220k and have a kiddo. We have a 3000+ sqft home we bought for $365k, nice (not luxury) cars, daycare (basically second mortgage), travel, go out to dinner, etc. Plus we have decent savings and retirement accounts.

    What’s SMTS stand for?

    You’ll be fine with that salary. What’s your TC?

    For reference, I’m at 120 TC 100 base with 1 YOE.
