Average monthly AI salary in Israel is NIS 36,500
The average gross monthly salary for artificial intelligence jobs in Israel is currently 36,500 NIS and 38,500 NIS in Tel Aviv. Salaries range from NIS 26,000 per month for an algorithm developer with up to two years of experience, to NIS 53,000 per month for a researcher who is not a manager, in the private sector, with six years. experience or more.
The numbers come from a survey conducted by the MDLI Machine community and Deep Learning Israel on Facebook, designed to map trends among data science and machine learning workers. The results of the survey, in which 997 people from these disciplines participated, were analyzed and processed by data scientist Omri Goldstein. The survey found that the pay gap between men and women in these occupations was 8% in favor of men.
The current survey shows a sharp increase in wages compared to the two previous surveys, carried out two and three years ago, in which the average monthly wage was 31,000 NIS and 29,000 NIS, respectively.
The MDLI community is Israel’s largest and most active when it comes to AI, deep learning, and machine learning. The community is growing and now numbers some 22,000 members from across Israel – experts and beginners, in academia, industry and the IDF. It was founded in 2016 by Uri Eliabayev, an AI consultant, with a desire to create a high-quality professional environment for sharing information and ideas, a platform for presenting new topics, and a way to consult and to form collaborations for them. working in this field in Israel.
The survey further indicates wide pay gaps between those who work for one of the tech giants, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple, and the rest of the market. According to the survey, the average salary in these fields in giant companies was 55,700 NIS. Survey organizers say the average salary at these companies may well be even higher, as the largest number of respondents reporting earning more than NIS 70,000 per month came from this group, but it is unclear how much they earn in the past. – over 70,000 NIS. . The median salary of employees of these companies was NIS 60,000 per month. In other companies, the average salary was 39,000 shekels.
“Despite the difficult year that the economy has gone through, we see that this year too the wages of everyone working in data have increased significantly, and we believe that this trend will continue in the years to come as well,” Eliabayev said.
“The barriers to entry in these fields are very high,” Eliabayev added. “Most survey respondents have a second degree or more, which means the rate at which additional workers are trained and enter the industry is slow compared to other technology sectors, which is why the competition for the talent in this industry is so great. fierce. “
Young technicians buy high-end homes in Tel Aviv
Graduates in computer science and electronics engineering earn the most in this field, with an average monthly salary of 39,200 NIS, while graduates in economics earn the least, at 26,100 NIS per month on average.
The survey also revealed geographic variations. The highest average salary, 38,500 NIS, was paid in Tel Aviv. Haifa was next, at 35,200 NIS, followed by the central region (including the Sharon), at 35,100 NIS, the south at 31,800 NIS, the northern region at 28,100 NIS, with Jerusalem at the rear, at NIS 26,100>
Survey organizers say that one possible reason for the gap between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv is that in Jerusalem there is a higher proportion of analysts (12% versus 4% for the sample in its together) and university researchers (6% against 1%), these roles being the least well paid. In addition, the development centers of large companies that pay the highest wages are mostly in Tel Aviv, Herzliya and Haifa, not Jerusalem.
