        Yep EU. The max wage in Finland is around 80k for senior devs. Consultants through companies can get maybe 100k. Need your own company if want any more.

        >jeet/europoor
        I'm hispanic and in the US (was born here). To be fair, it is my first job out of college and I had no experience or internships beforehand. It's remote job, easy work, chill boss, good team, etc. It's only the pay that sucks. A couple months ago I finished my Master's degree and completed 1 yoe, so maybe it's a good time to start looking for something new. On the other hand though, I'm also just starting a phd (i wanna be a researchgay, they get paid good right?) so I'm a bit scared that if I switch, I'll end up in a more demanding job and I'll struggle to do both things.

          Bad example when 90k in almost every other part of the US gets you a very comfy living. A lot of jobs in the US would allow you to make 90k living in Eastern Europe regardless. Bit of a cope imo very disingenuous

        A good programmer is capable of making updates that have little to zero risk of breaking the production environment. Step 1 is figuring out how to do it in a non-destructive way.

      There’s an oversupply of people who have written code. About 1% of software engineers are actually competent.

      I was laid off 2 months ago because our greedy anglo board members decided to outsource our company's IT to endia. Since then have been applied over 100 jobs (didn't spam jobs, applied) and couldn't able to land an interview despite my 4 yo experience on field because every single fricking job posting already receives 200 applicants within hours anyways!

      But you know what's even more funny? The media still says we have a skill shortage. d-g I hate this c**t so much it's unreal

        Some of the large companies have platform, OS, firmware, etc. teams where your skill set will be useful. I'm guessing it's going to be tough to find a spot right now but if you aim for a place that offers RSUs and ESPP you'll likely do a lot better than the average embedded guy. Also if you've been at the same place for all of those six years, you blew your opportunity to jump for like an extra $40k minimum in 2021-2023.

    I lucked into two jobs during the pandemic (panic applying worked) and saw that it was possible to work multiple jobs/contracts. I now work 4-5 jobs/contracts at a time.

    $145k/yr salary from startup doing medical shit with AWS infra.
    $65/hr from a contract with spotty hours but solid programming tasks.
    $95/hr, 20 hours a week, but they want AI as well as a CRUD app replacement. Azure + React + AI hypetrain.
    $50/hr for an old client who wants a mobile app (React Native).

    It’s all web dev and temporary. I hedge my career by taking in a lot of work and doing what i can.
