Any other creative directors in tech out there? I lead a team of 5 internally but oversee the entire visual direction across our 200+ software company from website, UX, to brand strategy and design systems. I’m curious about my title and if it’s really a fit for the responsibilities I take on—with the fact that it could be undermining my salary potential. Anyone else out there with a similar role in tech? What’s your title and salary? I’m at 88k in CO, private/non-VC funded company.

Sounds to me like you're more on the Sr level, with low TC.

Can I ask what about the role lines up more as a senior than director?

88k...as a director..? Where are you located? That sounds really low.

Yeah, I think between 100 and 150k is reasonable for what you're doing. The size of your company does matter though. it's pretty common for people to be managing too much with too little pay at some smaller places. Doesn't mean that you can't push for it to be more reasonable though.

Thank you both for the feedback. Annual reviews are in April and I’m gathering info to have a salary conversation. We are not in the Denver area (which lowers salaries) but are a 29M company. I’ve struggled to know what I should be making because my role is unique—tech salary or agency salary. Pretty sure HR lines me up with the later which is a lower compensation

I’m leaving consulting for a flex data role (bi / engr / analytics) at a startup. I’ve been in consulting 3 years, and my salary went from 100->120. I was happy until I started reading some of the salaries out there..How are people finding jobs with 150 // 175 // 200? What can I do to make my background more desirable for employers? I don’t know what I’m interested in yet, but I have been enjoying exploring data architecture and algorithm development

Role is business development/client service associate and this would be my first full time role. I just want to have a general idea of what comp could/should be so I feel prepared to discuss
