Depends on a lot of factors but 30-50K base and 60-80K ote!

Probably like a 30-35K base plus commission. Maybe 40k on the high side? I'd say target earnings would probably clock in around $55-$65k in total but you could go a little higher depending on performance!

Honestly the only answer is “as much as you can get” literally no set number…

Don’t settle for less than 50k base in these times. That’s my personal opinion. Speaking from experience, I got that base in 2018 from
a series A

A 60k base is possible

How did you get the job? I’m looking also trying to get into tech sales.

About $50k to $65k on average. This is because you will be paid a lot in equity that hopefully can represent a more considerable amount in the next 5-10 years.

80k at max

60 -75 base, 90-100 OTE

I need to rant. I have a friend who keeps hiring nutritionists that give her absurd restrictive diet to follow and every time she does this she fails and gains all the weight back and more. I also used to struggle a lot with my weight, but was able to lose a significant amount with diet and exercise. I have very kindly and subtly offered my advice in the past, but she always brushes it off. She just told me about the diet her new nutritionist put her on and it makes me want to scream!
