Here’s a few other things we investigated that didn’t turn up much to learn from in the themes above, but might have some value to some readers:
Size of Company
As you can see, this plot is all over the place. If anything, it speaks to the value of finding the right role rather than optimizing for a particular company. There is a slight trend of higher compensation at larger companies, but we can also see that it’s possible to make a healthy living across many levels.
For the purposes of this report,”public” refers to companies which are publicly traded, making the result fairly unsurprising – bigger companies go to IPO; bigger companies pay slightly more; so that result shows up here too.
Top Five Airports
Many practitioners of DevRel are high-mileage travelers, making their “home base” airport a quality-of-life factor. Respondents answered the question “What is your closest major airport code?” as follows:
- AUS and LHR (tie)
- SEA and JFK (tie)
- DEN, TXL and YYZ (tie)
- PDX, MSP, BER (tie)
Given its proximity to Silicon Valley and status as an international airport, it’s unsurprising that SFO is the most-flown-from airport. After that, the results quickly filter across a wide geographic area.
