Why don't you ask the people who are hiring? Apply for jobs and see what they offer.

Before taking an offer i wanted to search through the market. I am trying to predict what is good what is bad.

I didn't say anything about taking an offer. I said apply and see what they offer. That will give you a good idea whether it is worth pursuing the matter further.

Well, then, what do you think about what they are offering? Is it tempting, or is it ridiculously low?

Generally, good jobs are advertised solely by word of mouth, face to face in the real world. Internet sites and recruiters get the table scraps. So if you are interested in working in Poland, then take advantage of your network of real-world professional contacts and expand it as necessary until you have good real-world contacts that actually work or have worked in Poland. Rest assured that anything you find on a website or from a random recruiter is extremely unlikely to be your golden ticket to fame and fortune.

That is the case for most jobs, but in the IT world, there's simply not enough talented people in Poland to do things like that. There are plenty of IT companies out there who are openly paying large bounties for talented developers and salespeople.

In my view, if they offer you 10-12K gross per month, that will be it.

10-12k? When iOS developers with just a few years experience are clearing 10-15k here in Krakow?

As i checked there is no such background like me so i can not find a specific salary for now.

People with these skills/experience are rare and get snapped up pretty quick, but you'll find jobs will be in the major cities. You're looking at 20k/month net if not more, particularly if you're willing to work in Warsaw. Check out what's being advertised on LinkedIn and talk to some of the IT recruiters.

You will only get paid the salary that someone is willing to offer. Then can offer you 50K gross per month if they think you're worth it. So the best advice is - suck it and see how much you can get. I said 10-12K-but hey, you maybe able to get 20, or 30 or 40K.....

Or 400K or 500K... Majority of IT jobs pay 5-10K gross, those paying 10-15K are "upper class", over 15K - that's tiny minority. If this guy had been such a hot commodity, he would have been working in the silicon valley since years. People thinking that IT is some sort of gold mine, simply have no clue.

Thank you for posts. I was not looking for job and suddenly took an offer which didn't include salary. This is why i don't have any idea what is a great cost. I want to live in EU not USA. And i want an easy life not like Rome or Paris. I want to take my chance on Poland.

Salaries are not included in job offers, because they want to get you for the minimal amount that they have to pay.
Poland is NOT an easy country to work and live in.

What are the difficulties to work and live? Can you tell in more detail?

Thanks

@DataGuy

The biggest problem is that wages are low, and cost of living relative to wages is high, which means that saving substantial amounts of money is very difficult.

Another problem is that there are a lot fewer immigrants in Poland than in western European countries or the English speaking countries, and most of those immigrants are single male students or transient workers, so that there is little in the way of immigrant communities in Poland.

The next problem is that English as widely spoken as in the western European countries, and Polish is a very difficult language that has little value outside of Poland.

The last thing is that IT work in Poland is almost entirely outsourced, so it is basically the kind of work that nobody in the home country wants to do. Also, even for multi-national corporations, you can be cut off from the corporate career ladder.
