Analyst developer :wtf:

Two words which shouldn't be next to each other in a job title.

Also you don't mention experience required - but at what you are looking to spend you will be lucky to hire someone fresh out of varsity...

If you doubled the salary range you'd still struggle to find someone competent in those fields.

Perhaps you should advertise the position as intended for graduates and not requiring experience.

Actually you get a that title a lot in financial institutions. Don't really know why these guys needs one though. I also agree that is not nearly enough.

Jeez guys. If we keep going at this rate no-one ever would want to post here. OP never stated years experience required so it's safe to assume their not looking for experts but grads.

Was thinking this the other day, no one will post jobs again :D but honestly, "potential employers" are just taking the piss.

What kind of an idiot studies a BSc, then does an MCSD as well as System analysis and design experience,
then knows C#, Java, VB.Net or Classic ASP with experience, knows Web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS, JSP and ASP,
can design Multi-tier applications makes Windows and web services while making use of Entity framework, MS SQL Server 2008 and up and Team Foundation Server and then accepts R20 000.

I know it says "would be nice to have" or "advantageous", but seriously who is going to develop these skills in a) a year that that can apply them well or b) willing to take that kind of pay for being able to do those things properly.

Employers are just taking a chance. They want someone who can do everything under the sun because they see all job ads with 1000 items of what you must be able to do while trying to pay subpar salaries. The last 3 days they have held training at my workplace and only then did I realise how much I've learned over the past few years and how many light years I am beyond many of my peers (software dev or otherwise). Some people struggle with simple math and get paid pretty well; they struggle to wrap their head around the concept of hexadecimal, nevermind everything else.

SA employers are cheapskate bastards, especially those that can afford to pay the salaries people deserve.
