I'm Swiss too, and while 0x[cantsaytherestoftheusername] has already answered many points I'd like to add my own; A Junior Software Engineer (.Net) gets after their apprenticeship a yearly salary of between ~58000 and ~70'000, depending on how well they've done in their exams.
A Software Engineer (also .Net) may get anything between 70'000 and 100'000 a year, and a Senior Software Engineer may get above 100'000.
Keep in mind that in our industry those levels are specific to every employer, so the border between Software Engineer and Senior may vary by a few grand. It also depends on the products develop - According to a recent survey, pharma pays best.
I've told you the baseline, keep in mind that any 'special' skills (HW programming skills, AI, a MIT degree) get you extra bucks.

I recently took a morning debugging an application that for some reason didn't work.
After hours I found a non printable character in an encrypted password in the web.config
It's nothing short of a miracle that I found it at all
I literally went over all of my failing files and cleaned it up. Seems about right.
What I need to do, then, is find which editor/tool is adding that.
Since I've some templates to get most new pages started, I just checked and found it in my primary editor. Somehow, it reminds me of the stoned virus in reverse. As long as I keep using templates. Same for various library-ish files. Only when something rather new is created does it show.
Thanks and Kudos!
* Templates to save me some work and keep users comfortable with something similar to what they've seen before.
For some reason solving those types of issues give me the greatest satisfaction.
I dunno why.
Cause they come with a free soy, decaf, almond milk latte?
