Salary asking price NYC

Salary asking price NYC

Hi all,

I recently went on a couple interviews and I think I am close to an offer. Made it past two rounds of technical interviews and built a small project(Which they liked). Meeting with the CEO next, I would believe to negotiate.

This will be my first real developer position if all goes well. Its a Front end developer position in NYC working with React and React native mostly. My questions is what should I ask for a salary?

I looked on Glassdoor and for a junior dev position in NYC is 105k.

This seemed unrealistic to me. So what should my asking price be for considering this is my first real fulltime position as a dev, but it is based in NYC. I currently work as a technical support engineer at a software company(not as a developer). But dont have formal CS degree.

Thanks for your input.

Can you find this company on ? You can check how much the company is paying its current employees, as another measure that could be evaluated.
I do think Glassdoor is reliable, but if you’re not completely comfortable you can find one or two more websites and use all of them as a parameter (and also to justify your proposal to the employer).


Also, you can try to find people on or that work in the area and ask for their advice.

Thanks for the advice. Yeah I attend a couple of these coding meetups in the city and asked around. They did confirm that 105k is a little unrealistic. I got a good idea of what I should be asking for from them. Thank you.
