I find that I have an easier time speaking in percentages vs. a set amount if they already know my current base pay. I personally won’t make a switch for anything less than 30%, but I’m content where I am at the moment so that’s my personal starting point. Do some homework and find out the top of the band for that position + your market value based on where you reside, then work your way from the top of the band if you have the YOE to back it up and/or demand for your skill set.

Do you market research (see what similar firms are paying for that level with your YOE) - start with Glassdoor and other salary site, talk to people you know at the company and aim high. Good luck!

Focus on the value you bring, track record (positive feedback especially in the last year), data from comparable roles, and better to have a competing offer to be taken more seriously.
