US average salary in USD:
For community managers: $87,000 (numbers are weird, but I triple checked the math for reporting on salaries for CMs in NYC/SF and it was consistently $78,000. There were significantly more CMs from outside of those two cities which is why these numbers skew higher for the rest of the US, and CM salaries outside of the US are significantly lower which is why the average CM salary globally is only $77,000)
For senior community managers: $112,000
For director/head of community: $163,000

Great thread. Alex you may want to add clarity are these base salaries? Or is it total comp including bonus and equity packages as you reach more senior roles?

These are base salaries. We asked about bonuses as a separate question, but there weren't many folks who got bonuses so I didn't include it in the main report. Happy to answer any specifics you might have around that, though!

Thanks Alex! Sorry I missed this when the survey went out. I am wrapping up week 3 now as Senior Director, Customer Community and Growth at Kaltura reporting to the VP of Marketing. My role will likely grow in the next year and report to the GM. More than 12 years in this space. Survey results you shared are great and in line with what I am seeing for those of us with many years of experience.
