Developer salaries have surged in recent years as more developers are finding themselves on the ropes of a rapidly changing industry.
But, if you’re one of the thousands of new jobs created each year, your salary will almost certainly be nowhere near what your peers are making.
In fact, the average developer salary is lower than what the median developer earns in the United States.
It was $42,000 in 2016, according to a recent report from Glassdoor, a job-search website.
That means that the average salary of a developer in the U.S. is about $12,000 lower than the average for other jobs.
And, as we know, this can lead to a significant jump in debt.
Developers who earn more are more likely to take on debt than those who earn less.
So, if your salary is nowhere near your peers, why do you think it’s going up so much?
A few factors can play a role.1.
More developers are starting their careers in a different country.
As more developers enter the workforce, they are looking for jobs in other countries.
As more of them enter the field, they have to find ways to earn more money in their home country.2.
They are taking on more responsibilities.
The average salary in 2017 was just under $60,000, according the Glassdoor report.
In 2020, it was $63,000.
And by 2021, it will be $65,000 per year.
So if you are a newbie in your field, you will probably have to put more of your personal life aside to pay your bills and to live in the city you’ve always dreamed of.3.
The workforce is becoming more diverse.
In 2016, about 40 percent of developers were male, up from 26 percent in 2010.
But as the workforce has grown, the percentage of women in the workforce is also rising.
For example, more than 50 percent of software developers are women.4.
There are more people making money than ever before.
The median salary for a software developer in 2016 was $51,000 — nearly $30,000 more than in 2010, according a Glassdoor study.
That’s a 1,000 percent increase over the last five years.
In 2020, the median pay for software developers in the US was about $46,000 according to Glassdoor.
But by 2021 the median salary will be about $51.5 million.
So why do we think we’re in a golden age of coding jobs?
The answer may lie in the way that companies are recruiting and hiring.
According to Glassnote, about 1 in 5 developers are under 30, making them a prime target for hiring.
Companies are increasingly finding that they can attract talented people and retain them.5.
Many more developers will be working in high-growth areas.
In 2018, nearly 3 out of 4 new developers were in high growth areas, according Glassnote.
So, you may not have much of a chance of finding a job in a city like San Francisco, where the median household income is more than $120,000 a year.6.
Companies have figured out how to create more flexible working hours.
Companies such as Amazon, Netflix and Google have developed flexible work arrangements, which allow them to shift people in and out of different departments, so that their employees can work from home.
Some companies also have developed a scheduling system to allow employees to work from their homes.7.
Many companies are starting to invest in training their employees.
Companies including Microsoft and Apple have created training programs for their employees, so they can learn how to code and develop software.8.
Developers are making more money.
According a study by the National Association of Software Developers, developers made more than three times as much as the median income for developers in 2016.
That includes salaries that were $44,000 and more.
And developers made $54,000 or more per year in 2017.9.
There is a strong correlation between how much developers earn and how many developers they are likely to work with.
For instance, the more developers you have, the higher your chance of making more than two to three years’ salary.10.
The rise in developer salaries can be attributed to the rise in the number of new companies entering the industry.
The number of companies entering a new industry has risen by almost a third over the past three years.
According to Glassnotes analysis, in 2020, there were about 1.5 billion developers.
By 2021, that number will grow to 1.7 billion.
And if you add in companies that have opened for business, the number will reach 1.9 billion by 2021.
