Focus put together this great infographic of salaries for various technical positions in Silicon Valley, noting that there are more tech jobs there than at the apex of the dotcom bubble. (Then again, after more than 10 years of growth, irrespective of bubbles, there ought to be.)
It doesn’t take into account stock-based compensation, but it does take into account cost of living. So that great $92,000 pay in Silicon Valley will only buy you as much as $59,000 in San Diego. Worth keeping in mind.
