Re: [ruby-81] Entry Level/Internship Pay for Developers

You could always check out Glassdoor.com and Salary.com for comparisons. I'm not sure that I would hire him as a ruby dev out of the box though. I'd put him with the front end guys and throw him a bit of rails stuff from time to time to get his feet wet before offering him a developer position. As such I'd pay him JS/HTML/WebDev salary DOE.

Hello everyone, asking for your help with something (a question).

A friend of mine's son has been offered an entry-level/internship position with a PHP shop that is moving to Rails.  He doesn't have a CS degree, but has a BA in Cognitive Science (related to user interface design) from UC Berkeley, and was a customer support tech at Google for five years right out of UC Berkeley.  He's teaching himself web programming, and is very sharp - he just developed, and is selling, an iPhone app using appcelerator, a platform that uses a JavaScript API to build native mobile apps.

My question is: what do you think would be a typical starting salary for such an entry level/internship position in a PHP shop moving to Rails, for someone with his sort of background?

Thanks very much, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
