I’ve Doubled My Salary Every Year For The Last 3 Years. Here Is How To Do The Same As A Software Developer

How I doubled my salary:

  • 1st year: Asked for a raise
  • 2nd year: Changed job
  • 3rd year: Changed job

Why does this work?

Steps to succeeding

1. Apply to new openings

  • Job boards from your domain
  • Slack channels of #jobs, #remote-jobs from a language, sub-domain in programming
  • LinkedIn Jobs
  • Meetups in your area

2. Don’t discuss salary expectations in the discovery call

3. Be a likable person
