Hi! I just moved in to Japan last January 1 and I am currently looking for Software Developer jobs (mobile or web).
I applied for a Ruby on Rails company and they offered me a paid full / part-time internship instead since I do not have any web dev experience yet but wanted to shift my career to this field.
I asked a few questions about screening process, full stack tools used by the company, English or Japanese, then finally the compensation.
It backfired and said the company works backwards and asked me if I could tell them how much I expect to get paid. I’m quite nervous when it comes to this since I didn’t want to overvalue myself at the same underestimate my skills (though no experience in this field).
My question is, how much is the Average Entry Level RoR developer (or Internship) salary here in Tokyo? Now I could just search for that info directly through the net but I want to hear some opinions from you guys.
I have 2 years experience with Software Development (Embedded Systems - C/C++) with a famous Japanese company based in the Philippines.
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
