Software developer salaries in the United States can vary widely, but the median salary for a software developer is $77,000.
That figure does not include commissions or other compensation for working in software development for a client or company, or consulting fees.
In 2018, software developer salaries surpassed $120,000, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, which tracks data on wages for non-agricultural workers.
In 2017, the median software developer salary was $72,500, according the BLS.
The median salary of a software development engineer in the US is $95,000 in 2018.
In 2019, the US median software development salary was around $93,000 according to Glassdoor, which compiles salary data for more than 200 software companies.
The BLS does not break down the average salary for software developers, but Glassdoor reported that in 2019, software developers in the UK had median salary at $98,000 a year.
The salary range for software development in the country is not much higher, however.
The highest-paying job in the industry is software developer in the U.S., according to Google.
That job typically pays around $140,000 annually, according Google.
However, the job is generally considered more challenging in the company, and software developers have more responsibility for maintaining the code.
Glassdoor estimates that the median wage for a full-time software developer (that is, a person who does not have a contract with the company) in the world is around $135,000 per year.
Salary data for software developer jobs at various companies is based on Glassdoor’s Salary Tracker, a ranking of the highest-paid software developers.
It is difficult to compare salaries across different companies, so Glassdoor also tracks the median pay for software engineers at companies like Uber and Google.
While the median hourly pay of a full time software developer at Uber is $32,500 (and for Uber the median is $49,000), it pays less than $11,000 for a single person to work full-timers at Uber.
Google is the most lucrative software developer job in America, according.
That software developer pays around a median of $107,000 to $109,000 (and the median of the company is around the same amount), according to salary tracker data from Glassdoor.
The data for Google software engineers, meanwhile, shows that median hourly earnings at the company are around $103,000 ($106,000 without a contract), according.
Glasshouse.com/salaries data shows that Google’s software engineers make a median annual salary of $122,000 and are given a 401k.
The average salary of Google’s employees is also very close to the median for software devs, but a high-profile software engineer like Steve Jurvetson at the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz makes more.
Andreessen’s median salary is $136,000 at the time of writing.
According to Glasshouse, the average wage of a high profile software engineer is $130,000; that is the median that Andreessen has listed.
The minimum wage in the software industry is currently $10.25 per hour.
