IT Salaries in Romania (2017)

  1. 1. Comp & Ben Insights Romania, 2017
  2. 2. Overview Since 2013, IT salaries have increased with a compound annual growth rate of 11.53%. The most expensive technology on the market seems to be Ruby on Rails, with other niche (and) newer technologies following close – e.g. Python, Node.js, Hybris, AWS/Azure. Although there are still differences for lower levels of experience in terms of salaries, for senior roles (starting from + 4 years of experience) the gap tends to narrow independent of technology and sometimes independent of the city. In terms of benefits, companies have started to match the desire for Remote work and Flex-time where we see the gap between current and attractive lower every year. Some new differentiating points seem to be the 13th salary and Vacation bonuses. Although IT salaries are among the highest from all industries, professionals seem to still value financial rewards above any other type of benefit.

After 2013, there’s been a constant increase in salary levels due to the fact that before there was a prolonged stagnation due to the economic crises and subsequently, large centers established operations on the market.
