Israeli high-tech salaries near US levels
For the sake of comparison, a high-tech employee in the US earns a total of $76,000 a year, and a software engineer in Russia earns $17,993 a year. In countries in East Asia, the preferred location for outsourcing, the average salary is a quarter of what it is in Israel. Software engineers in China earn $19,457 a year, and in India they earn $14,240 a year.
Tali Atzmon, salary and remuneration solutions manager at search and selection agency Pilat Human Resources, which represents Radford in Israel says, "These figures show that labor costs in Israel are continuing to rise, largely as the result of the falling shekel-dollar exchange rate."
