Median Salary Expectations:

How statistics are calculated

We count how many offers each candidate received and for what salary. For example, if a Sitecore with a salary of $4,500 received 10 offers, then we would count him 10 times. If there were no offers, then he would not get into the statistics either.

The graph column is the total number of offers. This is not the number of vacancies, but an indicator of the level of demand. The more offers there are, the more companies try to hire such a specialist. 5k+ includes candidates with salaries >= $5,000 and < $5,500.

Median Salary Expectation – the weighted average of the market offer in the selected specialization, that is, the most frequent job offers for the selected specialization received by candidates. We do not count accepted or rejected offers.


Sitecore is a global leader in software development. The company provides digital marketing solutions, mainly in the shape of two products, one being a powerful CMS, while the other is a fully-adaptive Digital Marketing System (DMS). This article will discuss the CMS part of Sitecore. We will discuss the feature and the developer APIs of Sitecore. However, the DMS, part of Sitecore, will be discussed in the following post.

Sitecore CMS:

Sitecore is the premier enterprise-level content management system written in ASP.NET. Built with web content editors and marketers in mind, it provides powerful control over every aspect of the website, including social integration, blog posts, advanced personalisation, ecommerce and much more. Sitecore has been using the .NET stack since it was first launched in 2001 and has grown in popularity with each passing year. The 7th major version of Sitecore is currently .NET 2.0/4.0, shipped as a complete rebuild of the frame work to specifically take advantage of new ASP.NET 4.5 features.

Underlying every Sitecore-powered website, of which there are tens of thousands, is the Sitecore CMS, written in the flexible, scalable and secure .NET framework. These cutting-edge, happy websites are used by the likes of Experian, Toshiba, Canon, Nestlé and many other big organisations across the world. Sitecore is an enterprise CMS, meaning that it’s not just for big organisations, it’s often used by them for their big sites. The system has a powerful desktop interface that is customisable by roles. It looks like a Windows desktop and is therefore easy to pick up and use for anyone who is familiar with Windows, because the system offers a suite of applications similar to a Windows operating system, for different tasks. There are applications for editing content, managing users, monitoring campaigns, configuring workflows, and so on.

The CMS consists of three databases and a web application:

Core databaseThis data store relates to member, system setting, and configuration management. CMS developers access this database through the CMS to configure CMS settings, build functions, plug-ins, and improve the editor’s operating experience.
Master databaseEditors who work with content use the master database to create, revise and delete content. The workflow can be configured to approve content for publication or to limit access to content sections if approved by required contributors.
Web databaseThe live data for the web application is kept in the web database. Unlike the master database, it contains only the latest live versions of items. It does not accommodate content in preview mode. Published content is transferred from the master database to the web database.

The web and core databases are hosted in an SQl server instance in the live environment. This helps to keep the CMS away from the public website for added security. The authoring environment and the live database are kept in sync using scheduled replication by SQL replication.
