2018 Global Salesforce Salary Report
If you think you’re not getting paid enough, my advice:
Note: A Salesforce recruiter helped me find my Salesforce dream job in the past, so I generally recommend using one!
Hope this helps you!
P.S. I’ve worked with various Salesforce recruiting companies and have hired many Salesforce professionals myself – I definitely vouch for these numbers. Also in case you’re wondering, I don’t do any paid ads on this site =) Things only get posted if I think it’s good stuff!

Thanks David for this post and this blog in general.
I’ll agree with the others that the numbers in this report are very inflated. Junior Admin earning 105k in NYC is simply not true, that cannot be had! The mid and senior numbers also seem very high.
Honestly I think it’s because it takes into account the salaries of hourly contractors, who make almost double what non-contractors make!
Wow, what a roundup. As impressive as these figures are, I would love to read about how Salesforce services are valued in more countries such as India. As a developing country with Salesforce consultants such as Cymetrix Software leading the CRM revolution, India is unbridled potential! Any thoughts on this?
I kind of feel the number in Australia is way too high. For me, I wouldn’t think a junior Salesforce Dev in Australia can make 120k. I know many companies in Australia who pays mid-senior level less than that.
Can you include Canada as well so I can show my boss?
Wish I had that info!
Hopefully Mason Frank can include this in next year’s survey. This is based on where responses to the survey came from. Canada is an increasingly growing market so perhaps in 2019, there will be more input from Salesforce professionals :)
David…Is there a rule of thumb for salary requirements for an admin whether on a W2 or 1099?
They split it out in the full report – check it out!
Why don’t you guys consider Salary survey of India?
Let the truth come out.
Indian admins and developers are paid far less than these figures. They are not even in somewhere in the ratio.
Maybe I’ll do a separate salary just for India!
If anyone is interested, reply below!
That sounds great :)
Mason Frank don’t currently recruit in India and therefore couldn’t properly verify the salary information which was submitted. However, data on that would be amazing and we’ll be sure to share with the ecosystem :)
That’s Sounds Great
Yes David, it will really help us .
Yes, it would be really helpful.
Thats great! Waiting for your report of India.
Mason Frank’s salary surveys have been, historically, very criticized as skewing too high on the average. Which, makes sense, because they are trying to sell people on SFDC (though every interaction I’ve had with Mason Frank has been extremely poor and unprofessional). The Mid/Senior numbers are … fine. But Junior numbers are too high for the general industry.
Can we also agree that the whole Ohana thing is super cringe-worthy? I’ve been in the SFDC ecosystem for over 10 years and I’m embarrassed every time I have to interact with the branding. The appropriation of Hawaiian culture by a white dude makes my skin crawl.
couldn’t agree with you more
I agree the whole Ohana thing, and the trailhead branding looks like Salesforce is marketing to children. The only thing that could be worse would be if the characters were animated into a cartoon.
I have 4 Salesforce certifications and have worked for 3/4 non profits helping them with small Salesforce assignments for little over a year. I am in the US and trying to find a paid job as Salesforce Administrator or Salesforce BA. I always get inspired reading your website, but I am not able to find any recruiter who would be able to help me find a good Salesforce opportunity, as my experience is too little for them. Could you please advise. Thanks in advance!
Best regards, RC
Your resume probably needs work =) I think I’ll do a section on that some time!
David, Let me know if you need assistance with doing a resume section. I was an IT Recruiter before learning Salesforce. Happy to help.
TOTALLY want to do this soon!!!!
I am waiting for any position in android org at google
