1YOE medical device NPI Lead looking for salary perspective

Mechanical engineering grad, joined a medical device startup that I had done co-ops at. 8mo into full-time, pivoted from engineering into more of an operations role doing new product introduction (NPI), now with 3 direct reports.

The combination of startup+medical device+NPI seems very unique and I'm struggling to find salary comparables. Currently making 75k but it feels very low given my new responsibility and impact. Any advice?

Some more context that couldn't fit into the original post: the reason it feels low is because I went from just being an engineer to the lead of a small team and a major stakeholder in design reviews and such. I have some options vesting on a 4-year schedule, but without and IPO it's hard to value them - and I don't have very many, it seems to me

I can tell you based on my experience in the industry (7.5 years in medical device design, NPD specifically) that $75-85K seems to be the standard starting in HCOL areas. When I started in 2015, it was $65K, and I only had a bachelor’s degree. I see now many young engineers coming in with master’s degrees out the gate and they start in this range. With promotions and some diligence in finding the next opportunity you could carve a path to 100K+ in no time. Hope that helps.

I think that makes sense, but should being quickly promoted to a position with 3 direct reports not coming with a higher-than-starting salary? I will acknowledge that I lack experience that a seasoned manager/lead would have, but my responsibilities, scope, and impact are still significantly increased from what it was before. It's the question of "what should my raise have been" that I can't find any comparables for because of startup+NPI+medical as I mentioned
