Government Digital Service -> Cabinet Office -> Crown Commercial Service (2020-present)

I am currently a Senior Developer. My salary was:

  • for the first 3 months, at ‘Proficient A’ on the DDAT London pay scale, with a full-time-equivalent salary of £63 500
  • thereafter, at ‘Proficient B’ on the DDAT London pay scale, with a full-time-equivalent salary of £69 500

I work part-time (90%). The civil service pension adds the equivalent of another ~20-25%.

I’ve been working on the Digital Marketplace all this time - we’ve just had a few transfers.

A Developer, with a full-time-equivalent salary of £56 000.

Metaswitch (2015-8)

My salary at Metaswitch ended at £48 000, with an annual bonus of about £2000. I also had a number of share options, but left before the Microsoft acquisition, so they were worthless.

The Metaswitch starting salary for graduate hires was £32 000 when I joined.
