Re: Experienced oracle dba salary

It depends on severals factors.

Are you a system DBA, or a DB arch., or a
data modeler, or an application DBA type guy, or a performance analyst?

Once you know what you are, I can tell you what you are worth to me.

A specialist app dba guy, who can cover multiple products, and act as a one stop shop is worth over 200K a year.

A guy who knows pretty much nothing about the application and the business, i.e. a very task oriented resource will get over 100K

Thank you for this reply

In the past 7 years I've been a DBA (not sure about your classifications, may be what you called system dba (installation, maintenance, backup/recovery, performance tunning ...)), i've worked mainly on oracle, but occasionally other products as well (sql sever, postgres, mysql)

before that I had worked 4.5 years as an it engineer, doing different things (.net developpment, php developpment, data ETL migrations ....)

Re: Experienced oracle dba salary

Most large internationals have moved development (including Oracle, Java, etc.) to low cost countries, so perhaps not that much demand at the moment.

If you find a contracting job, then it will be between CHF 110.00 and CHF 140.00 per hour (and the agency takes 15% to 20%). For a permanent position you will receive the quintessential CHF 120K a year, or if you are lucky, 150K a year. If you speak German, have a good degree, and know your stuff, then closer to the 150K mark.

If you know the more "exotic" stuff, like no-sql, block chain, [enter flavor of the month] then you will do better.

If you understand financial instruments, like derivatives, credit default swaps, [enter flavor of the month] then you will do better.
