VentureBeat is reporting an increase of almost 20% for tech salaries in San Francisco in 2013, to just more than $156,000 annually. And while IT salaries increased “only” 8% in Silicon Valley, the average annual wage was almost – wait for it – $200,000. Detroit and New York are starting from much lower bases but both cities are also seeing near-double-digit growth.
Also according to the survey from real-estate firm JLL, which analyzed the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report, tech interns are even cashing in, with firms like Palantir paying more than $7,000 per month to those just starting out in the industry. Huge bumps are also being seen for code-camp graduates, further fueling their recent popularity.
We’re certainly seeing an increase in outsourcing activity in IT careers, as companies scramble to avoid these ever-rising salaries and find developers any way they can.
