Web development is one of the most in demand careers today and one of the best tech jobs for the future, with expected job growth of 13% over the next decade. This growth is considered ”much faster” than the national average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But another great benefit of pursuing a career as a web developer is the impressive income that web devs command today.
In this post, we’ll consider the average web developer salary at both the national and statewide levels.
Web Developer Salary in the United States
According to salary estimates from the BLS, the median web developer salary in the U.S. was $69,430 in 2018.
So, what is the national average web developer salary for 2019? According to the Career Karma average of the 4 sources above, web developers in 2019 earned an average salary of $78,662.
Of course, determining salary information is far more complicated than that. As you might expect, finding the average pay for any career is problematic. These estimates don’t consider things like skill level, years of experience, or location.
But we want to give you a better sense of the pay range for developers. So, let’s consider some of these factors and how they affect pay range.
