Pay by Experience Level for Sr. Software Engineer / Developer / Programmer in Austin, Texas

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase in this role. The median compensation for relatively untried workers is $79K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $90K. Six-figure salaries surface after one to two decades on the job — experienced professionals in this group reap a six-figure median of $104K. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $105K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
