Factors that affect the Fullstack developer hourly rate
This rate is affected by the following factors:
The developer's experience and expertise
A developer with a higher amount of years of experience would earn a lot more than an entry-level developer in the same skill and industry.
A difference in expertise, on the other hand, would affect the rate even at the same level of years of experience.
For example, if a junior developer is more thoroughly skilled in a technology and related technology, they may be paid more per hour than a senior developer who only knows one technology, because they can apply their knowledge in multiple areas.
Stack of technology
Some technologies are in higher demand than others, and this shifts every few years as newer technologies emerge. As a result, a high-demand technology would generally pay a greater amount.
The project's level of difficulty
A more complex project, such as one dealing with complex finances or large-scale ecommerce, would pay more than a simpler one, such as one dealing with only static data display.
The locations of both the company and the developer would have a significant impact on the developer's hourly rate. Most of the time, when both the company and the developer are in high-cost-of-living areas, such as New York or San Francisco, the hourly rates are much higher.
Fullstack Developer Hourly Rate By Location
As previously stated, location influences a Fullstack developer's hourly rate. We discovered that, while this rate is $41 in the United States, it is around $30s in Sweden, Germany and Australia.
This rate is less than $5 in Egypt and India. It should be noted that the cost of living in these regions varies as well.
