Ecommerce Salaries Still Rising
Published: 29 Jul 2014 By Simon Lewis
As the skills shortage for ecommerce professionals becomes more stark, salaries within this increasingly dynamic industry continue to rocket.
And there is even more favourable news for workers in this sector, since in-demand skills can command at least an additional 10% salary increase when moving jobs – every 12-18 months, on average.
Despite the swift churn, ecommerce remains an industry dominated by permanent roles, though this is changing in some areas such as web design and content/copywriting.
Cranberry Panda’s marketing manager, Billie Graham, said: “We are noticing an increasing trend of companies bringing in contract people to fill gaps and help with specific projects and this is across all levels of experience. Is this a move away from agencies to a more affordable and controlled way of working? We think so.”
Through growth, ecommerce teams are changing and becoming more sophisticated. Roles are far more specialised, highlighting niche areas as ‘hot property’. Many companies are seeking creative professionals that are also both commercially and analytically savvy, so UX/UI gurus are in big demand right now. Other sought-after talents include in-house web designers, web analysts, search specialists and people with international experience.
Here are the top-line stats from the ecommerce salary survey.
