Hi Forum,

I would appreciate if you could give me a hint about the salary range (In-house - Not a contractor) for a Senior .NET Architect/Developer (Over 6 years of experience) in Stockholm city?

I mean, How much salary should I ask for when I discuss with the HR manager? and how much should expect?

What about the taxes, How much percentage will it be? I am trying to calculate the take-home pay.

Thanks Forum !

If your planning on making A lot of money as a .net programmer your in the wrong country.

Based on your experience you should get 42 to 48k net pay a month.

Tax is rough here. You speak Swedish I presume?

Thanks for the link, It was useful.

Thanks for your input, You stated: "you should get 42 to 48k net pay a month"... So, that means the HR may offer me around 60k as a gross salary (before taxes)/month ?

48k after tax salary means that the employer has to pay you 80000 SEK /month (gross salary).

Overall the employer pays 105 000 sek. Which is 15000 US dollars. (and over a million SEK in a year)

I think the salaries are not that high in Sweden any where. Otherwise you would not find all the really smart ones going to London or SanFran.
