One of the most common questions developers ask themselves when they’re looking to change jobs (or even cities) is, “how much money will I make in X city in this type of role?”.

To help job seekers understand what to expect in the case of moving to Barcelona, our friends at JobsBCN have put together a guide that shows salary ranges for different types of technical jobs in the city.

The guide has been put together using salary information included in job listings published in JobsBCN from June to October 2015. For the purpose of this study, they’ve not taken into account roles at consultancy companies and banks, which tend to offer higher salaries for certain positions.

The analysis focuses on the following positions (gross salaries):

– Frontend web developer
– Backend developer
– Full-stack developer
– Mobile developer
– Software engineer (game dev, network dev & others)
– Data engineer (data scientists, big data engineers and DBAs)
– DevOps
– Quality assurance

Go read the whole thing at JobsBCN’s blog. It’s worth it.
