Pay by Experience Level for Traffic Engineer

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


Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Traffic Engineers with Engineering Design skills — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $58K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $77K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $84K in this role. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $86K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
