Hi all, I'm moving to San Francisco next month and looking for UX /Product Design job opportunities as I've heard SF is the hub for tech and UX.

I saw that base salary for a UX/Product Designer is $80 per hour which comes to $13, 884/monthly.

I've got 3+ years experience in fintech and healthcare as well as some side gigs and I've built and designed a solid portfolio.

Given that SF is expensive, how much do you think I should be asking or earning?

I am wrong to be insulted that he did not offer a wage increase? Should I negotiate or run as I have been feeling undervalued?
