Hey everyone - Here is an article about salaries that was published in VentureBeat, with a breakdown of the programming language as well as the years of experience. Hope this helps!

Mr Blaster, just wanted to share my thoughts since I speak to hiring companies and Bay Area engineers daily.

Assuming your company is a start-up, as a Team Lead, I would narrow the range to $[masked]k.  Of course there are companies that sit on both other sides of the extreme, but I would guess that 90% of companies fall into this range.

In general, start-ups ask us to stick within a[masked]k range when they are hiring jr-sr engineers, but as a Lead they may bump it up a bit.

These numbers can change depending on the stage of the start-up, with later stages generally having a bit more salary flexibility as there is less equity and more funding or revenue.

If my assumption is wrong and you are working for an established company,but just a small team, then ranges for a Principal/ Lead engineer may be more along the lines of[masked]k.

Hope this was helpful despite violating your No Recruiter plea.

I've been at my company in SF as a Rails developer for 4 years. In that time, salaries and cost of living have skyrocketed, and I feel that my salary today is worth far less than when I started. 

I am trying to get an idea of what a going salary is these days. I checked indeed and glassdoor and I feel like they are reporting all over the place, and that people who leave a company in anger may report their salaries lower than than actually are, to deter people from working at the company.

How much do you think a Sr. Rails developer with 7 years Rails experience (15 years total programming experience) who is the principal engineer in a team of 4, with tons of experience in scaling and large site development (The one I am currently on gets 10 million hits to the backend per week, and can handle 20k RPM via newrelic) should be looking for in terms of salary? The ones I am seeing range from $120k to $190k .. but I am turning to you guys to help me better prepare myself before I go in to salary negotiations. This is for San Francisco proper.

Please feel free to email me privately at [address removed] if you don't want to post to publicly to this list. I will not share your name or the information you provide. This is of course an anonymous email account :) Also recruiters, please don't email me. I know you want to tell me how much you think you can place people for -- but I'll pass. Thanks in advance!
