We have more than double the data we had last year, and we find the results mostly consistent with last year’s results. What is clear this year is that salaries are related far more to total number of years of experience in IT that years in the Scrum Master role. This makes sense to us, so our recommendations below are based on total number of years experience. One new thing in this years survey is the emergence of some very well paid contract Scrum Masters in Johannesburg, who on average are earning double their permanent counterparts. These are mostly senior Scrum Masters with more than 10 years of experience in IT.
Our recommended monthly salary brackets are below.
|<5 years||R10,000 – R20,000|
|5 – 9 years||R20,000 – R30,000||R25,000 – R35,000|
|10+ years||R35,000 – R45,000||R35,000 – R50,000||R45,000 – R60,000|
|contractor||R60,000 – R100,000|
