Bermuda Information Technology Jobs
Although Bermuda is very small, it is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries in the world particularly when information technology is concerned. There are large number of International Business
in Bermuda who heavily rely on IT and other technologies. And the reality is that Bermuda doesn't have many IT professionals of its own.
Although there are many small IT service providers in Bermuda, the large clients with their own IT departments prefer to have their own IT personnel. So with the above gap, there is always an ongoing demand for expatriate IT professionals in Bermuda. Compared to the jobs in several other professions, IT jobs offer higher remuneration.

If you have a recognized bachelor or a higher degree along with several years of relevant experience in a multinational or a global company, you can expect an annual package starting from $75,000 for an IT Architect role or similar. With higher positions like IT Project manager or IT Director, the salary package can be substantially higher.
But like any other jobs, if a qualified Bermudian is available, then he or she will always be given a preference. Only after ensuring that a local skill is not available, will a job be offered to an expatriate who will need to secure a work permit
to work in Bermuda.

Hi Raj, I have a Masters in computer science and was offered a job in Bermuda for 122K per annum. I have over 10 years of IT experience, with approximately 3 years in the area required for the job. Is this a marketable salary and would I be able to living comfortable and save at least 3.5K - 4K per month on this salary ? I urgently need your advise. I appreciate hearing from you. Best regards

In IT, it's an 'okay' salary for your level of experience, but can easily be higher. If you are alone, you can save 3-4K per month provided you do not indulge much into outside food, pubs etc. Cheers!
