Software engineers in the Seattle area earn an average annual base salary of $103,196, according to a new survey by Glassdoor.com. That is the second highest in the U.S. behind the San Francisco Bay area, and well above the national average of $92,790.
Seattle also ranked No. 2 in last year’s Glassdoor report.
Glassdoor found that there are 1,418 companies hiring software engineers in our region–the sixth-highest number of companies behind, in order, San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., Boston and Los Angeles.
Three of the 25 best-paying companies for software engineers are based in the Seattle metropolitan area: Amazon at No. 14, Microsoft at No. 18, and Expedia at No. 21. Other companies among the top-25 that, while not based in Seattle, maintain offices here, include Google, Twitter, Apple, Facebook and Ebay.
The best-paying company is not the best known: Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Juniper Networks, which manufactures networking equipment.
