When it comes to determining the salary of a JavaScript developer, several factors come into play, including experience, location, and industry demand. Whether you're an entry-level programmer or a seasoned software engineer, your JavaScript job salary can vary significantly.

On average, a JavaScript developer's salary ranges from $70,000 to $120,000, depending on years of experience, the complexity of the project, and the demand for particular frameworks. However, these figures can vary significantly based on different factors, including the developer's expertise.

Factors affecting the JavaScript software engineer salary

  • Location and cost of living: Although we're focusing on remote roles, location can still influence a developer's salary. Expensive areas might offer higher salaries to compensate, while areas with a lower cost of living may offer salaries below the national average. For example, developers working in tech hubs like San Francisco or New York City may earn higher salaries compared to those working in smaller cities.
  • Frameworks and skills: Proficiency in popular frameworks like Angular or ReactJS can push your JavaScript programmer salary upwards. Likewise, having certifications and a solid grasp of APIs and client-side programming can be a boon. In addition, unique skills like backend development can also influence salary.
  • Negotiation skills: How you present your skills and negotiate your worth can significantly impact your final offer. We provide insights on how to negotiate salary after a job offer, which can be immensely valuable.
  • Resume and interviews: Your JavaScript developer resume is your ticket to securing an interview. Ensuring it's up to par is crucial. Familiarize yourself with potential JavaScript interview questions to be well-prepared.
  • A well-crafted portfolio: Your JavaScript portfolio speaks for your skills and represents your technical capabilities long before you can present yourself at an interview. Make your portfolio easily accessible, even if your real projects are confidential; take one of these JavaScript project ideas and add them to your portfolio.
  • Career path: As mentioned earlier, experience plays a significant role in determining a JavaScript developer's salary. The more experience a developer has, the higher the salary they can command. Those who have transitioned from a software developer role to more specialized roles such as a software engineering manager or positions emphasizing user experience might find themselves on the higher end of the JavaScript salary range.
