Salary by Experience 

These averages have been collected from Glassdoor and are most likely skew on the high end. Are entry level data analysts actually earning€50,000? It’s possible — but what’s more likely is that inexperienced analysts earning something in or around €40k as a starting salary. On the senior side, the salary is probably more  accurate, €60k for a data analyst with over 5 years of experience with the possibility of management responsibilities.

When negotiating for a higher salary it’s important to factor in taxes. If you are earning the average salary you can expect that one third of you income will go towards taxes and social security. Let’s take an example. 

If you are living in Austria and earning a gross annual salary of €48,000 or €4,000 per month, the total amount of taxes and contributions that will be deducted from your salary is €15,800. This means that your net income, or salary after tax, will be €32,100 per year, €2,680 per month.

Salary by type and technology 

The key technologies for a data analyst are Python, SQL, and/or R. It doesn’t make so much sense to focus on each technology specifically so we’ve decided to focus on different specialisations. Experienced data analysts usually transition into specialised business areas such as risk, operations, or financial. Let’s take a look at the different role and see what each are earning on average. 

Average salary by city 

We’ve taken a snapshot of the three main cities in Austria (Vienna, Graz, and Salzburg) to compare data analyst salary. Vienna, being the capital, pays the highest on average followed by Graz and Salzburg. Location is a tricky because it’s not the most accurate metric — one city, like Vienna, might have the largest proportion of jobs and therefore the average skews higher. But larger cities usually come with higher living costs. 

Salary by Company in Austria

Below is a snapshot of data analyst salaries from specific companies. This is probably the most helpful comparison if you are already working in Austria and want to see what your peers are actually being paid. As you can see, Austrian-founded companies seem to be paying the highest specifically Red Bull and Bitpanda (Austria’s newest unicorn). Some of these companies also feature as the best rated companies to work for in Austria.
