That's reasonable for someone without a degree. A software developer with a degree should be making much more than that.
In Tennessee, depending on where you live, you should be able to live reasonably well on a $60K/r salary.
To improve things, consider getting a degree in computer science. You should be able to do that online or at night school at a local university. The company you work for may be willing to help you pay for that.0

Didn't you post something before about you being excited to make 60k?
Now you supposedly need others validation?
60k in my opinion, is not bad especially if it comes with benefits.3
I think For the state you live in , that’s definitely above average and a good living wage. Where I live in the US that is average income but definitely good for someone that doesn’t have a degree1
What Girls & Guys Said
I know cost of living is a lot cheaper down there, so I’d imagine you could be pretty comfortable on 60K2
It's good if your single and want a decent lifestyle. But it won't support a family of 31

$60 an HR? or YR?2
The only opinion from girls was selected the Most Helpful Opinion, but you can still contribute by sharing an opinion!
Presumably you meant $60/hour. I have no idea. Is this a W2 contract? Are there any benefits? Is there a medical plan? How good is it and how much do you pay for it? How much experience do you have? I would consider $60/hr W2, with minimal to no benefits equivalent to about a $60K salaried position. If a recruiter tells you that $60/hr is comparable to a $120K salary, run away. He's a con artist.
Are you paid for EVERY hour worked? If you are being paid hourly, NEVER EVER EVER work unpaid hours.
For comparison, summer interns at Amazon in Seattle are paid something like $7,000/month and are provided housing. New college hires are paid about $125,000/year.
Your degree or lack of one doesn't matter. How good are you compared to your teammates? How good are you in general? How well do you do on sites like leetcode?
