Are SharePoint Experts Earning Less This Year?

While our annual Redmond Magazine Salary Survey showed average wages increasing 3 percent, we discovered a surprising anomaly in this year's report: SharePoint experts are making less this year.

Granted the average SharePoint administrator or developer still earns a six-figure salary, our survey found a decline of 7 percent. Last year the average SharePoint Salary was $107,063, dropping to $100,817 this year.

Given the growth of SharePoint and the release late last year of SharePoint 2013 as well as a substantial upgrade to the SharePoint Online feature of Office 365, I found that surprising.

"I've noticed that trend also and I don't understand that either because it seems everybody wants to use it more," said survey respondent Chris, who told me he was equally surprised when I ran the number by him. "I see SharePoint expertise required in job descriptions all the time."

Could it be that there are more SharePoint experts out there, thereby giving employers a larger pool of candidates to select from? Or is it perhaps an aberration in this year's survey?

If you're a SharePoint expert, or one who hires them, please share your observations. You can comment below or send me a note to [email protected]
