Salary Guide for Delphi developers.
If you work as an IT professional in North America, you should probably find very useful the 2012 Technology Salary Guide published by Robert Half Technology.

This guide exposes the compensation trends (salary trends) for pretty much every position in Information Technology. It covers the United States of America and Canada, and you could even obtain salary ranges for particular cities.

This guide is useful for both managers and non-managers individuals. In my particular case, I am always curious to know if I am getting paid decently.

The tables below are an excerpt taken from the guide:
 2012 Average Starting Salaries – United States
Job Title
2011
2012
% Change
Software Developer
$ 65,750 - $ 104,250
$ 70,000 - $ 111,000
6.5%

2012 Average Starting Salaries – Canada
Job Title
2011
2012
% Change
Software Developer
$ 56,250 - $ 94,000
$ 59,750 - $ 99,750
6.2%

There are further statistics in the guide about Java, .NET, C++, PHP and other programming languages. You can use that info in order to tune the indicators above even more. There are no details about Delphi in this guide.

I think that we (the Delphi community) could gather some statistics about the salary rates for Delphi Developers. I propose running poll surveys to gather such information. Once the polls are closed, we will publish the outcomes and we can draft our conclusions.

The polls are finally closed. Go to the end of this post and take a look at the outcomes. Thanks a lot to all the participants: 45 in the United States and 30 in Canada. It’s funny how the number of voters was a multiple of 5 in both countries Smile | :)

Take a look at the right column of this page: I have published two polls to collect the information about the salary rates in the United States and Canada. I am only putting together the data for these two countries, because I already have some reference data to compare with. (I am referring to the data in the tables above). It would be really nice if someone else could take ownership of similar polls for other countries.

Important:
  • I will kindly ask to vote, IF and ONLY IF, you are (were) working as a Delphi Developer in the United States or Canada during the current year 2011.
  • We could make this better if you enroll your coworkers or any other Delphi developers in your area.
  • The poll is by nature anonymous: we are just gathering collective information.
Please, in order for this to work we need your vote!
