As my last agency was falling apart, I started looking for a new job, and per usual, it took a while to find the right fit. I hit the last interview for a job that sounded collaborative, accepted my skills, moved me to “Senior”. But they asked for my salary range and told me they had an interview w/someone else. I wanted the job so much that I think I lowballed at $75k. They immediately accepted. Am I underpaid because I was excited?? (Altho the job is awesome so far.)
2 yrs experience, remote.

Where are you located? With 2 YoE of experience, it seems like a pretty fair rate (unless you're in a very expensive market like SF or NYC), but it does sound like they could've gone a little higher if you asked for it. With that said, if you love the job and environment, don't stress over it. A lot of people make a ton of money and hate their job. Once you're a year or so in, make your case for a raise.

I’m about an hour outside of Denver.

I wouldn’t say you’re underpaid but definitely accepted the lower end of the salary range for a senior position. You definitely could’ve negotiated higher but honestly what’s more important is the work life balance and as long as you love the job.
I agree that after a year definitely ask for a raise or if promotions are lined up!

I quit my previous job approximately 5-6 months ago due to toxic culture and being pressured to commit fraud. I fear hiring managers see that I’ve been out of work for this time and may assume I was fired or laid off. Additionally I’ve had a couple interviews where company “X” interviewers have commented on this and in an effort to not bad mouth my previous employer I’m stuck with a generic answer like I want to take my career to the next level with Company “X.” I’m stuck. Thoughts/strategies?
