just wondering if I could get feedback on a recent SE job offer in Tokyo?
I’m late 20’s, possess spousal visa and conversational Japanese, have a PhD in a STEM subject with lots of computing involved, but no direct experience with the SE/mobile/web development industry (except writing a few unpublished apps for a hobby).
A small (but seemingly ambitious), well-established Japanese company has offered me roughly 7.4m yen (including housing subsidy) plus relocation, up-front rental fees, commuting expenses and one performance-based bonus per annum.
Two questions: 1) is this a sensible offer given my unusual experience? and 2) what kind of salary progression should one expect in SE in Tokyo, while working as the lone foreigner in a Japanese company?
Thanks in advance!
