Factors that affect the Ruby on Rails developer hourly rate
Several considerations must be considered when determining how much to pay a developer or how much to charge the company if you are a developer. In general, the following criteria influence the hourly pay of a Ruby on Rails developer:
Like with most occupations, a developer in a higher-cost-of-living area would charge more than one in a lower-cost-of-living area. Therefore, Ruby on Rails developer hourly rates in Canada and the USA are up to 10x greater than those in areas like Asia or Africa.
A senior developer with more years of experience will charge more than a junior developer with the same abilities and working in the same location.
The length and difficulty of the project
A more difficult project that necessitates superior abilities from the developer would pay a significantly higher hourly rate than one with a lower degree of complexity.
For example, if you are simply required to design a single landing page as a developer, your hourly fee will be lower than that of someone who is required to build a complicated shopping app.
Form of business
Service businesses do projects for other businesses and typically pay lower hourly rates than product businesses. The rate may also be affected by the company's size.
Ruby on Rails Developer Hourly Rate By Location
In the previous graph, we only addressed rates in the United States. But, as we've seen in the variables influencing these rates, the rates in other nations vary substantially as well.
In Australia and Germany, the typical hourly pay is between $30 and $35, however in Egypt, the rate is as low as $4/hr.
While the costs vary widely, the quality of developers does not, and you can find exceptional Ruby on Rails developers in all areas.
