Ask HN: What's compensation like in the greater Boston area?
7 points by tmux314 4 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 6 comments
Where's a reliable place to learn about compensation in the area? I'm still new to the GBA too so I don't have a large network. I'm also getting different and conflicting info from my Google searches. I'm happy to go to any events if it helps grow my contact list and meet others in the industry.

A little about me: I have close to 2 years experience with python, C++, AWS, Jenkins, and Concourse. I've done a lot of DevOps-type work over the last year, and I'm getting my Kubernetes app developer cert shortly.

Thank you in advance!

Levels.fyi leans towards the larger companies, but it can be valuable for getting a sense of the higher range of salaries in the area:

This is very useful - thank you!

Where have you looked? Glassdoor salaries? Cost of living comparisons between GBA and places you're familiar with? At the end of the day, your salary is whatever you can get. Go apply for some jobs.

Not sure about dev-ops specifically, but eng salaries for 1-2 years experience are around 70-90k in general.

I would expect dev ops to be around that, maybe slightly lower.


Can I ask you how to increase your score?

What do mean by score? Do you mean HN karma?
