Nitish, salaries in IT are amongst the highest in Poland. A senior developer can earn 20,000 PLN gross. However, no matter where you are in the world there are certain factors that are the same.

The salaries are highest for senior developers and four years experience only puts you at mid-level at best.

The Qlikview thing alone doesn't make you that desirable unless there's a severe shortage of developers with that technology. I don't know what the story is in Poland regarding that. You need to have another programming language like Java or C++ which are always in high demand. I mean one that you've been using in the last two years, not one that you did in college. As you know from your career thus far, employers are constantly asking developers to switch projects and use different languages or tools.

Finally it depends on which city the job is in. Warsaw pays the highest salaries.

I would say you could do a bit better than 7,000 gross but not that much. 8,500 maybe.

i got rejected once due to salary part

How much did you ask for and how much experience did you have then?

Hi Nitish. You said 4,200 euros net (you do realise that net means after tax, it's your take home pay), I presume you mean per month. That's about 17,000 zł, which is a totally unrealistic salary expectation for Poland. It would you make you one of the highest earners in the country! That's not going to happen anywhere after four years work experience. Just to put it in perspective for you, you were asking for around 50,000 euros per year take home pay, after tax. Absolutely no software developer anywhere in Europe earns that with four years experience. You'd need nearer to ten years experience to be in that category. It's a salary for a senior developer and one with an impressive CV.

So, just to recap, your max is likely to be around 2,000 euros gross per month, that's around 8,000zł. They expect you to ask for a bit more and then they offer less, so you could ask for 9,000 zł.

That's $85,000 a year gross, or 27,000 PLN a month gross. You would have trouble getting that much as a junior developer in a rich country. Salaries like that in Poland are for senior higher management and administration, and even then.

You have priced yourself far, far beyond what the Polish market is going to offer, which is about a quarter, at the very best a third of what you are expecting. If that's the level of salary you are expecting, you are completely wasting your time applying for jobs in Poland and any other country where outsourcing is the industry mainstay.

You're only going to find salaries like that in the richest areas of the richest countries where serious R&D money flows in prodigious abundance, and there's very little of that in Poland. Even then, you would have to have very special skills and experience to get that much as a junior developer even in the richest countries.

Not far out at all. My guess was somewhere between 5500 to 6500, maybe a little more if experience with Qlikview is seriously in demand and he's able to sell himself and his skill set well. This is, after all, a junior position, and with only a bachelors and only four years experience, he's unlikely to start out even as a team leader.
