What Is A Typical CTO Salary?
Difficult question to answer because individual packages are wrapped up in many different ways.
From straight salary, to mixture of salary and equity. Then you have start up and early stage companies where it’s often a case of grafting today, for jam tomorrow.
Key for any negotiation is to understand your own value, what the market is paying and what the potential might be with the organisation you’re looking to join.
What does a CTO or other tech leader get paid?
We have collected data from around the world to create a tech salary calculator about who gets paid what and where.
Please note that this can only be a guide because many senior remuneration packages will include stock options and other perks, particularly with early stage and tech companies. The incentive is often about jam tomorrow, rather than salary today.
But our aggregation of salaries starts to paint a picture and we hope it helps.
