A web developer is an integral part of the ‘world wide web’ world. They work like interior decorators in the way that they are responsible for developing and designing the website of their clients. For this task, it is essential that a web developer has the ability to be able to combine his genius at designing with technological advances so as to create the best product in the market. He therefore needs to be in touch with the upcoming technologies and keep gathering skills to further his career opportunities. A web designer earns quite handsomely too. The following article will let you in on a few things about the web developer’s salary.

Duties

Before an in-depth look at the salary range of the web developer, let us look at some of the duties that he handles..

  • Developing newer web applications on the basis of instructions by the supervisor.
  • Create an intranet that allows every staff member to have a personal profile and that provides the ability to manipulate data.
  • Enhancing existing and developing newer web applications.
  • Conducting all user acceptances tests and working based on those results.
  • Designing and implementing databases, templates and interfaces.
  • Developing web portals so that users can load and retrieve information.

Average Salary Figures

Entry-Level Salary
A web developer at the entry-level will earn an average salary of $35,000 – $40,000 yearly. This amount depends on a number of other factors like his educational qualifications, the location of the company, the policies of the company and the like. Since it is a new entry job (and let’s assume that the candidate has no prior experience in the field) that pointer will not be counted. Add to the salary, the factor of probable bonuses and the number might increase by a few hundreds.

P.S. Please note that all these figures are an approximate estimation. Each company has different rules that govern its policy making decision.

Junior Web Developer- Salary
A junior web developer might sometimes be confused with a web developer at the entry-level. Many companies might not even make that distinction and hire a web developer (who has no prior experience) and give him the title of junior web developer. Yet, a junior web developer usually has about 2-5 years of experience and makes about $50,000 to $60,000 yearly. This figure will change according to his educational qualifications. It has been seen that a person who has a Master of Science degree makes more money than any other bracket of education.

P.S. Please note that all these figures are an approximate estimation. Each company has different rules that govern its policy making decision.

Senior Web Developer – Salary
A senior web developer usually has about $70,000 to $90,000 salary range. Not only will his educational qualifications (the stream that he studies from, the degree that he has) play an important role in determining the salary range, but the city that he works in will also contribute to the pay scale. New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle and Minneapolis pay the highest figures as compared to other places in the USA.

P.S. Please note that all these figures are an approximate estimation. Each company has different rules that govern its policy making decision.

Freelance Web Developer – Salary
A freelancing job in this field is a tough job and usually does not pay as much as the permanent jobs. There is a lot of competition as well and it is usually difficult to support yourself with just that pay. The exact figure is difficult to state because this factor is solely determined by the company. The only thing that usually stands true in this case, is that a freelancer is paid on an hourly basis. Yet, the hourly figure is also determined by the company.

The salary ranges for jobs play a major role in shaping your career. I hope I have been able to explain the web developer salary range sufficiently enough. Hope it helps you in making your decision/thought process easier.
