Python developer salary - A multi-faceted programming language
According to Glassdoor statistics, Python developers make an average annual income of $101,874 in the United States. While this is the average, incomes typically range from $65k to $162k per year and vary further based on factors such as the developer's level of expertise and the location in which they live. Python engineers are often familiar with frameworks such as Flask and Django, but a pure Python developer may expect to earn about this amount.
However, according to ZipRecruiter, the same income is roughly $113k/yr, but the range ranges even more, reaching as low as $51k/yr and as high as $161k/yr for an intermediate level of experience, similar to Glassdoor on the upper limit. Talent.com reveals additional variety in this range, indicating that it is between $101k and $155k on the lower and upper ends, respectively.
Again, according to Glassdoor, the average salary for a senior Python developer is $ 142k. ZipRecruiter and Talent.com have slightly higher figures. Senior Python developer salaries aren’t available on ZipRecruiter, but is listed as $135k/yr on Talent.com
A junior developer, on the other hand, receives an average income of $61-$149k/year across the three platforms. The exact data for this is:
- Glassdoor: $94k/yr
- ZipRecruiter: $83k/yr
- Talent.com: 90k/yr.
