Market for software developers in Canada
Right before I left the GTA in 2014 I was a tech lead / architect making ~120k total. This I think was on the higher end. I interviewed locally and didn’t have too much trouble getting multiple offers for similar or slightly higher salary.
Recently I’m hearing a mix of things. Some people are telling me there is a tech boom and salaries and opportunities are going up. Others are telling me it’s getting more competitive to find a job and there is downward pressure.
What has been your experience recently?
- how do you feel about your ongoing earning potential? Increasing or decreasing or same?
- how do you feel about job prospects?
Including details like role, location, industry and current total compensation would be helpful. Thanks!
