In March, Stetson released our anonymous salary survey to the group. We want to thank you all for your amazing collaboration on this project. We received over 500 responses! 🤯

Rather than dump all the data on you, I have made the results accessible in a much easier format to understand by combining charts and graphs!


The Participants

Firstly, let's take a look at what sort of people are answering the salary survey based on position. This will give us a good idea of who will be answering these questions.

A large proportion are individual contributors, meaning that they do not lead teams of people and have positions such as engineer, etc. All other managerial positions are noted above.
