IT jobs in San Antonio getting a wage hike?

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

IT jobs in San Antonio may be enjoying wage hike, according to a recent survey from Dice.com.

Technology pay in the United States saw another year of hikes with technology professionals earning $89,450 on average annually, up two percent from 2013, according to Dice’s annual salary survey.

Tech bonuses were both more frequent and higher. 37 percent of tech pros cited receiving a bonus in 2014, slightly more than the 34 percent who said this last year. The average bonus in 2014 was $9,538, up 2 percent year-over-year.

“As demand for technology professionals rises and highly-skilled talent is harder to find, the pressure is being reflected where it counts: paychecks,” said Shravan Goli, President of Dice.com. “Still, tech pros are less happy with their earnings, signaling to companies that in order to recruit and retain the best candidates, offering more will be necessary.”

While salaries rose slightly, satisfaction with wages declined. Half (52%) of technology professionals were satisfied with their compensation in 2014, down from 54 percent in 2013. In fact, satisfaction with salaries has dipped each year since 2012, when it peaked at 57 percent and salaries saw the biggest year-over-year jump to 5.3 percent.

The Pacific region as a whole received the highest salaries and tech professionals in Silicon Valley are again the highest paid in the country, earning $112,610 on average, up four percent year/year.

The second highest paid talent is in Seattle, where tech pros earned $99,423, up five percent, in 2014. Sacramento tech salaries rose 14 percent to $96,788, with more experienced professionals earning more from last year driving the growth.

Professionals in Portland, Oregon earned $91,556 on average, up nine percent year/year, and in San Diego, tech salaries rose four percent to $94,121.
