I was in that same boat and the company offered me 80k... I was able to negotiate up to 85k, I ended up not taking it as the pay increase was not significant enough to start over at a new place

My partner was in the same boat last year. With a little back-and-forth, he got up to 115K. Hope that helps. Good luck.
