Salary is one of the major criterion when looking for a job or looking to hire someon. In a constantly moving industry, it can be quite hard to know where we stand on the market. Wether you are a junior or a senior profile, it is important to have some idea of what you are worth. 
 
Paris should not be the only city getting its market analysis when it comes to salaries. For 6 years now, Urban Linker has been helping out its candidates on the salary ranges on the market depending on their job, experience, and the technology they use. With over 2 years of activity in the Rhône-Alpes region, we are now able to give out our study on the salary evolutions for tech profiles in Lyon and its surroundings. 

People in Paris, if you are interested in moving to Lyon, know that your salary will decrease of 20-25% on average. But don't worry! Lyon is the second digital ecosystem in France, and you will have access to attractive projects, on a blooming market! (see our article)
  
The study was carried based on salary information gathered by the recruitments we made, for pure players, web agencies, software editors, startups and digital departments of big groups. The data collected have been balanced by a qualitative and empirical approach, in order to be as accurate as possible compared to the market it illustrates: Urban Linker’s senior consultants, experts in digital jobs, analyzed the results.

This study is a quantitative and qualitative analysis, based on the recruitments carried out before June 30st 2017, and only involves the geographic area of Lyon and its surroundings. Numbers are given in gross k€/year.
