Trying to get salary idea

Post by beingeire » Wed May 29, 2019 2:24 am

Hello,

I am contemplating moving to ireland. What would be ideal salary for a software engineer having 9 years of experience?
skilset: Full stack dev - java(spring, hibernate), react, nodejs.
There are 2 places I might be relocating to. Sligo and Dublin.
Please provide an average salary for these places.

Thank you!

Hi,

Most likely it should be around 60 - 70K Euros. There is also a minimum salary for critical skills of 60K but this does not apply for IT sector.

It also depends on the company and technology. However Dublin is a costly place, so if you have an option with similar salary range then make an informed decision.

Thanks,
Manish

Thanks for your reply. The initial offer i got is 55k. I am yet to do any negotiation. After looking into cost of living in Dublin, I felt Sligo would be better option in terms of saving.
Do you think 55k is a good salary in Sligo?

55 k would be okayish, but compare that with your India salary and savings.

Thumb rule which I used was saving of India salary per month as minimum criteria to move out.

Welcome to Ireland
