This is entirely region specific. You need to give more details.

Keep in mind, there aren't really any big annual raises. You need to change employers to see big pay jumps.

There's no amount that's set for any YoE. It's really what the company can offer. A company with small revenue won't be able to compete with a more profitable company. This why someone makes 80k as a new grad vs 300k as a new grad. Go where your skillset commands more

I read a description of what this role is supposed to be for and it sounds like they'll be leading Scrum ceremonies. So they run the planning meeting, the retrospective and daily stand ups. Up to now, I've been doing those and it's taken a total of like 2 hours a week of my time.

Remote vs in person for software developers in their early career. I started my career in 2021 fully remote. After the office opened again in 2022, I was able to learn a lot about the system from other people in the office and solve bugs faster. Without a doubt made my job easier. Lots of my colleagues still work from home in 2022. I can’t see why they are making it harder for themselves on purpose. I’m fairly confident they can afford to get to the office because they have teslas and shit.
