Navigating Global Financial Waters: The Amazon SDE1 Salary Index and its Implications for Software Developers Worldwide

Kunal Dhanda [4] | Sweta Sehrawat [4]


Abstract: This research paper introduces the Amazon SDE1 Salary Index, a comprehensive tool designed to analyze and compare the adjusted net salaries of Amazon's Software Development Engineer 1 (SDE1) roles across various global locations. By incorporating factors such as gross salary, local tax rates, and the Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) factor, the Index aims to identify the most financially advantageous countries for software developers contemplating international relocation. Covering a broad spectrum of countries, this study highlights the significant impact of local economic conditions?specifically, taxation and cost of living?on the overall financial benefits of working in different regions. The findings reveal substantial disparities in adjusted net salaries worldwide, underscoring the importance of considering local economic factors when evaluating potential relocation destinations. Through a detailed comparison of financial benefits across countries, this paper provides valuable insights for software developers, including those at Amazon, seeking to maximize their financial well - being while navigating the complexities of global mobility in the tech industry.
