Oracle 2015 salary survey

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonUpdated January 7, 2015

Also see the 2015 Top Computer Information Systems jobs.

Even in this recession, Oracle jobs look very appealing with salaries that rival engineers and other professionals, with starting salaries as high as $85,000 with senior Oracle DBA's commonly earning over $130,000 per year, and Oracle superstars earning over a quarter million dollars a year. 

Why so much money?  It's because Oracle is the world's most sophisticated, robust and flexible database.  See my notes on How to become an Oracle Professional.

Oracle Corporation recently published their 2015 Oracle salary survey which shows an average 2015 DBA salary of $97,000 with the highest salaries to consultants and those with lots of experience, living in high-cost areas.

As a general guideline, a well-qualified Oracle professional (master degree) will earn age times three, so a 30 year old Oracle professional can expect, on average, at least $90,000 per year.

To learn more about becoming an Oracle professional, see my notes here:

The salary survey also shows that experience counts most, and jobs with the most responsibility (DBA, consultant) makes the highest Oracle salaries:
