Salary Survey – 2015 Linux Salary and Top Certs
Our own survey of Linux-certified professionals revealed some positive indicators on that score. The median annual income for Linux-certified IT pros both last year and this year is relatively low by comparison with other IT specializations — $52,500 — but a significant number (more than 40 percent) of Linux IT pros benefit from bonus and incentive pay. There’s also positive growth at the top of the salary ladder, where the most experienced and tenured IT professionals tend to reside. Slightly more than 16 percent of those surveyed had an annual income of $100,000 or more in 2014, but that figure climbed to 18.5 percent in 2015. The more you know about Linux, the greater the likelihood that your salary is on the rise — or should be.
