United Kingdom tech salaries amongst lowest in the world

"A couple of things are happening in Austin, a low cost of living, no income tax, and you already had a tech ecosystem there", Hired CEO Mehul Patel told Recode.

Other interesting stats from the report are around which cities pay tech workers the most (San Francisco at $142K on average), what type of tech companies pay the most (transportation companies pay $20K above the average) and how the average tech worker's salary plateaus after age 45. Their $118,000 salary pays for a lifestyle they could afford in San Francisco only if they earned $202,000 there. "But New York is not keeping up... considering the cost of living".

White workers were found to ask for more, and to get more. Seattle is No. 1, followed by Austin and Denver.

Congress Working To Avoid Government Shutdown
Paul, a fiscal conservative, opposes the boost to military and domestic spending proposed by bipartisan Senate leaders. In the end, however, Democrats declined to hold the spending bill hostage over immigration .

"New York, like San Francisco, is a very desirable place to be", Patel said.

The average worldwide salary for a tech worker in 2017 was $135,000, says Hired, up 5% from the 2016 survey.

Hired recently released its "2018 State of Salaries" report, and the company found that race has "a significant impact" on salary in the tech industry.

Brexit transition 'not a given', EU's Barnier warns
However, Michel Barnier gave a blunt assessment of the situation in Brussels earlier today. It must also accept the consequences of leaving the EU's institutions and policies".

While we know the tech sector pays among the highest wages across the country, the sad reality is that your location, race, and gender-not skills and experience-will often determine how much you take home. According to Patel, black workers historically set their preferred salary on the low end, at $124,000 compared to whites' $130,000.

Hired suggests that the short-term solution may be fairly simple: black candidates need to ask for a few thousand dollars more at the start of negotiations, rather than base their salary expectations on what they earned at a previous job.
