Just saw a Sr. Architect position listed with a salary of $40K.

I might call them and tell them they are way, way off.
Why would you fuck up someone's dream job, op?
Not sure what you mean... I'm sure if someone wants to work as a Sr. Architect for 40K that a company somewhere will be happy to hire them.
40K? Thats over 3300$ a month. It is enough to have a decent house, a car (or two) and support your wife and children. In my country, it is top salary.
@Ron, it's Not in the USA or in Europe, is it?
Ron, $40k for a senior job is fuck all. I make more than that and I'm essentially a glorified code monkey.
Not sure where you live Ron, I get paid over three times that, and most Sr Architects are going to be 120k and up anyway.
I live in a 3rd world country and make 3 times that as a Sr dev.
@Ron - I started at the bottom of the food chain twelve years ago at 40K, and I live in an area with a fairly low cost of living (and by extension lower salaries than most other places). So ya, that's a bit low.
They probably found average salary data for Jr & thought Sr and Jr were the same thing. 😋 Or they're just desperate and delusional.
I live in Central Europe and my salary is around 12K$ a year...I've been working for almost 10 years (though I do it half-steam). I need to move to another country :D
