about 115,000 - 120,000. Banks pay more, agencies less. Management reponsibilities pay more. French and English are usually required for all positions.

Re: Web Developer Salary

Hmm, salarium shows a quite lower value, around 108k. Where did you get your figures?

Re: Web Developer Salary

It surprising to me that it is so low... comparing it to NY (I know that is stupid to do) the salary for an experienced .net developer (presuming it is a solid 7 years, and not just a few projects, and knowing the framework well, etc.) would easily start at 125 and go up from there

Re: Web Developer Salary

In Zürich I would say that you should be looking for 110K - 130K CHF.

Within the IT market there are very few technical roles which pay more than 130K CHF.

Re: Web Developer Salary

I don't agree. They are and it happens. I'm not saying they should take it though, but I know of people who were offered even lower salaries than that. And they were NOT fresh graduates.

It's also why I asked earlier, it looks like the salaries in IT are on a downward trend.

Re: Web Developer Salary

for IT salaries, it all depends on what you are doing. Skillset makes a huge difference. "Web Developer" can really mean a lot of different things. Anyone with excellent HTML 5, CSS 3, PHP , SQL, AJAX, JavaScript, JQuery and good experience in a CMS like Drupal / Joomla / Typo 3 or other should be on more than 69k for sure.
