Salary expectations for Ruby on Rails developer jobs

Post by SkyLinx » Tue Mar 16, 2021 6:36 pm

Hi!

I am about to have interviews with a company as senior web developer with around 10 years of experience with Ruby on Rails and related tech.

I have no idea of what to say if/when they ask me my salary expectations because I don't have prior experience with this in Finland.

Can anyone give some insight about this? I have found some websites that mention salaries in Finland but I am not sure if I can trust them, so I would like some opinion from someone in the field.

Thanks!

You have to count the holiday bonus in IT collective agreement. It adds 4% on the top of base salary first year then 5% starting next year.

5k = 60k-62k/yr makes sense. 60-70 is the higher range for seniors (not team leads or management)

Have you calculated tax and pension? At that range the curve of tax rate gets a lot more steep upwards, so you wouldn't get much by pushing higher.
