There's no option for Design Ninja.
There is... but it's hidden.
Or the Rockstar
There's no option for Product Designer.
There's no option for a UI Designer & Developer either. From my experience you can demand more for knowing HTML/CSS/JS.
In retrospect, it might have been better to list out all the possible instances for _____ Designer, rather than just Designer. Product Designer / Visual Designer / UI Designer / UX Designer / Etc.
Each of those has a variety of levels, such as Jr, Mid, Sr, Lead, Head of, and so on.
Perhaps choosing your job title first, then level second would have been best. Alas, 20/20 vision (in hindsight) for the next survey I suppose.
Agree. I just browsed through the results and as a not-just-mobile UI designer I wouldn't have known where to list myself. (sorry for replying on an old comment, just wanted to beat the dead horse with agreement).
I'm also working on a similar survey for Folyo. It won't be about salaries but about specific budgets for various types of projects though. But it'll be interesting to compare results.
Is there a results page? I'm still a student so I don't have a salary to report.
Now there is... https://news.layervault.com/click/stories/29331
I'm getting this weird Review/Submit loop
You have to choose from one of their pre-selected job titles
Filled it out. I think there should be different country and currency options. Converting currencies to USD doesn't give accurate salary comparisons, because costs of living vary from country to country.
I second the Submit / Review Loop from the survey. A typical case of looking good, but good at not working. :o)
Can't add my job title. so i closed the window.
How's the survey going Cameron? Got any results yet? Thanks
Approaching 900 submissions. Hope to compile the results first of next week.
Let me know if you need help with survey design of a future one. I've put a few together over the years and it's a surprisingly complicated affair!
You got it. Thanks, Matthew.
"Product Designer" isn't an option. (Edit: Looks like this has been pointed out already)
Hmm -- I did city and state for location, but I wonder if I should've done state and country?
Nope, that's good enough.
Even though the title I chose doesn't functionally represent the roles I have taken on at my job, it's still the title I've been given there, which is Designer / UX Designer (what we consider ourselves), since we don't have any positions that cover designer + developer hybrids.
I wonder how many are out there who are called "Designers" or "UX Designers" at your jobs, but do a fair amount, if not, focus primarily on front-end development too.
I am not sure I can get much value from just title, salary, and location. What about years of experience or something like that. It's hard to compare myself to just an amalgam of all those who have the same title.
This was meant to be an informal survey. However, nearly 600 responses later (so far), it may have been better to pull out all the stops and ask for detailed information.
Annual Compensation before taxes?
Surely. Never heard someone ask what your Net Salary was.
I have heard someone ask your take home pay.
Also - many cities, states and countries have different tax rates so it's always worth considering.
I was literally just thinking about this yesterday!
It would be interesting to see how this compares to AIGA's numbers.
Hoping to show a comparison with enough submissions.
