The Austrian government requires us to state the MINIMUM salary for every position. In this case it is €70,000 gross per year. Since we always tailor salary packages to market rates, your experience and your education, please don’t take that number too seriously! KISKA is also an equal opportunity employer. It’s a no-brainer, but important to mention.
