The ranges for the hourly rate quoted by the three platforms also vary. On Glassdoor, the range is around $29-$75/hr. ZipRecruiter on the other hand shows a wider range of $18-$79/hr. However, the range shown on Talent.com is much more conservative, at $46-$72/hr.
For someone who’s just starting out, the educational background would be an important factor. A developer from a well-known college or university can expect to earn a considerably high amount of money. However, this isn’t always a major factor in later years of one’s career.
A developer’s skillset is one of the most important factors for a developer who’s been in the industry for a while. Someone who constantly upskills themselves and is capable of performing multiple tasks may be able to expect a higher hourly rate than their counterparts with limited skills.
Often, the firm you’re working for may require you to communicate with clients or also hold a role where you need to constantly update your colleagues about the progress of work done. As such, soft skills possessed can significantly impact the hourly rate.
Location is another very important factor in this list, we’ve covered more on it in the subsequent section.
