Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many New York Software Engineers, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. The median compensation for relatively untried workers is $83K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $98K. Experienced professionals — those with 10 to 20 years in the field — see salaries in the six-figure territory, securing around $124K on average. Veterans who have surpassed the 20-year mark may make only slightly more than those who are navigating the mid-career stage; the more senior group reports median earnings of around $134K.
