Salaries of IT professionals in the middle of 2018
We publish the second report of the My Circle salary service. The report is based on data on 7900+ salaries made by our users over the past six months. 70% of salaries paid by developers, the rest - by administrators, testers, managers, analysts, designers, eycharami, marketers and support specialists.
This time, we will not only see the current salaries of the main IT specializations, programming languages and companies, but also see the semi-annual dynamics of some of them.
A little about the service of salaries "My Circle"
The salary service was launched on the “My Circle” at the end of November 2017 with the goal of regular monitoring of salaries in the IT industry. Salaries are left by the specialists themselves, we collect them and provide them in an aggregated and anonymous form to everyone in open access. All data presented in the current report, as well as any other data, anyone can get on their own using the salary calculator .
All salaries are in rubles. These are the salaries received on hands, after deduction of all taxes. Dots indicate specific salaries. A group of points for each sample is visualized using a “box with a mustache”. The central vertical line shows the median salary (half salaries are lower, and half higher than this point, we can consider this salary as the average), the box borders are 25 and 75 percents (divide the lower and upper half of salaries once again in half, as a result, half of all salaries are between them). The box's mustache is 10 and 90 percentile (we can conditionally be considered their minimum and maximum salaries).

Recently, we have added to the calculator a histogram of the distribution of wages by their size, as well as a diagram of salary changes over time. We also added the ability to exclude cities to the calculator filter to make it easier to view salaries by region. Also now on the filter, you can choose the time period for which you need to know the salary.
Total salary change
Over the past six months, the average median salary throughout the IT industry as a whole grew by 5.9%, from 85,000 to 90,000 rubles. Half of all salaries are in the range between 58,000 and 135,000 rubles. The increase was due to the increase in wages, which were below the average in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and also due to the increase in wages, which were above the average in other cities.
Salaries for major IT specializations
The growth of the average median wage is observed in the field of HRP, development, administration, design and management. The fall is observed in marketing, support and analytics.
If you look at the regions, then the growth of the average median wage in all regions is observed only in development, and the fall is only in marketing. In the Eichar and design growth is observed only in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
In other areas there is a movement of salaries in one direction and in the other direction at the same time, depending on the region. For example, you can see that the overall increase in the average salary in the administration comes at the expense of Moscow and the regions, in management - at the expense of Moscow, despite the fall in the average salary in these areas in St. Petersburg.
Software Developer Salaries
For all the specializations of the development we see an increase in the average median salary, especially strong in game development and the frontend.
When splitting into regions, unequivocal growth is observed only in the front end in Moscow and St. Petersburg. For all other specializations, there is growth in some regions and a fall in others.
For example, the overall wage growth in game development comes at the expense of St. Petersburg and the regions, despite its fall in Moscow. A wage increase in desktop development - due to its growth in the regions, despite the fall in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Along with the companies, it seemed to us interesting to draw on this chart also the salary of those who indicated that they work in freelancing. It is interesting to compare this salary with the salary of outsourcing companies that perform the same function as freelancers, only do it on a large scale.
By the way, from recent times on “My Circle” you can not only leave your salary, but also give marks to the companies in which you work. All the companies for which we received a salary for this report already have a rating from their employees.
We thank everyone who points out their salaries in the service, contributing to the creation of a more open and structured IT market!
