Fullstack developer salaries - Wide variations across platforms
A fullstack developer earns an average of $85,979 per year in the United States of America. While this is the average, Glassdoor reports that the rate ranges from $54k/yr on the low end to $138k/yr on the high end. Take note that these are the typical values for a fullstack developer with intermediate expertise. Salary levels vary widely depending on experience.
In the United States, an entry-level fullstack developer, or in other words, a junior developer, may expect to earn $77,517 per year. A senior fullstack developer, on the other hand, can expect to earn roughly $110k per year on average, with salaries reaching as high as $173k.
While the above data came from Glassdoor, we also looked at a few other platforms to compare fullstack developer wages, and the rates were quite different across the three platforms. ZipRecruiter and Talent.com both reported that the average fullstack developer compensation is higher, at $104k/yr and $116k/yr, respectively. The range for mid-level fullsack developer salary was $38-$159k/yr on ZipRecruiter and $97-$148k/yr on Talent.com.
According to these two platforms, the junior and senior fullstack developers also were different than Glassdoor. A junior fullstack developer salary was stated to be as follows:
- Talent.com: 78k/yr
- ZipRecruiter: 55k/yr
And that of a senior fullstack developer is:
- Talent.com: $130k/yr
- ZipRecruiter: $129k/yr.
The above graph shows the data across the three experience levels and platforms.
Fullstack Developer Salary By Location
Beside experience levels, the pay of fullstack developers also varies substantially from one region to another. Fullstack developers in North America earn far more than their colleagues in Asia or Africa, as shown in this graph of fullstack developer income by geography. For example, whereas the average pay in Canada is approximately USD 60k, Glassdoor recorded a yearly average wage of USD 7k in Egypt. There are also differences between regions within all these countries.
These disparities are generally proportionate to the cost of living in the respective regions. While costs vary, the quality of talent around the world does not always vary as much, and you can discover exceptional talent in less expensive regions.
