    Usually there is a step between "junior" and "senior". Most companies have a "regular" stage. Would consider this.

    This survey won't give a good picture of the industry besides how much money respondents make (not very useful for recruiters or statistician). Some better questions are: 1. how content are you with your current salary. 2. Does management shows that diversity is important through its actions. 3. Average hours worked per week 4. Is your company respectful and empathetic 5. Data on what city designers live in is important because of cost-of-living. Then you can create a user model and answer useful questions for example: The average transgender Designers feels this way about their company and are compensated this much or white males usually work in large cities and have little time outside of work, etc.

    Another feedback: "When you say Where do you live?" you actually mean "Where do you work?", so let's write it so.

    An extreme example: I live in Malmö, Sweden and work in Copenhagen, Denmark. The two cities are only 35 minutes of train ride from each other BUT the creative business salaries in Denmark are on average +20% higher than in Sweden.

    Hey all, would loveeeee your help with filling this survey out and sharing it with other designers and developers.

    Survey is completely anonymous of course, and all results of this survey are to be completely open sourced for the use of anyone looking for a job anywhere.

    I'm here for any questions about this.

    Thanks!

      Why is gender limited to only male/female?

      Why is the "I have other things besides my day job, which are..." question not have a N/A option?

      And why not include race/ethnicity as part of this?

        Hey, wow only opening this now and seeing all the comments. Thanks and that's good feedback.

        re: gender - what other option would you like one the male/female? I know there are people that define themselves as neither, so I will add "other" unless anyone here will reply differently.

        re: race/ethnicity - didn't think about it. Next year we'll consider adding it!

        re: other things beside dayjob - I added the option :) Thanks!

          Considering diversity is such an important topic/goal in tech right now, it'd be great to see how it applies to designers and pay, especially across the globe.

    Out of curiosity, how did you come up with that list of job titles? I realize there's a ton of different roles in the industry, but this list seems fairly arbitrary. Example: I know a lot of folks—myself included—that are UX/UI generalists and don't really fit into any of the roles you've listed.

    Many enterprise firewalls (like mine) block access to Google Docs & other cloud hosting sites. Don't expect many responses from the big corporates

      Hey - yeah we got that feedback. Oh Google :( sorry to hear that. Hope Google designers will fill this out on their mobile and come across this super problematic UX bug :)
