Congratulations to those who have a clue about the React Framework ;) Meanwhile, the Median Salary Ranges in Frontend Specialty find itself in the middle of all others. A bit more than Cross-Platfrom, a bit less than Scala, but decent enough.

Salaries for Java Developers

The difference between B2B and Employment Salary offers for Java Devs is not as huge as for Frontend, but here we see a much bigger difference between Max offers for Junior and Senior Developers in comparison to Frontend. Senior Java Devs can earn $500-$1500 more than Senior Frontend. The Max Salary here hits the highest rate as well.

Salaries for PHP Developers

PHP Devs can count on one of the highest Salary Rates now. Not only the Max Salary for Senior Devs is $10,000, but the Junior Role reached the mark of $6,500! No Junior Role can compete with PHP regarding the Salaries on Skyworker.

Salaries for C++ Developers

The huge gap between the B2B and Employment is here for C++ Developers. This difference impacts the Median figures big time and makes them look average. On the other hand, the Max numbers seem much more promising.

Salaries for C++

Salaries for Full Stack (Node.js) Developers

Greetings to the Full-stack JS Devs ;-) Your Max and Median Salaries can stand the competition with most of other tech specialties. Moreover, the Median for Senior Node.js Devs is one of the Highest on Skyworker as well.

Salaries for Scala Developers

One of the highest Max Salaries and the Highest Median for Middle-Senior Devs now is offered for Scala Specialty. $6500-7000 for Middle and $8000-8500 for Senior Devs as a Median Range kicks the other specialties asses.

Salaries for Scala

Salaries for Ruby Developers

Salaries for Automation QA Specialists

Salaries for QA are lower than for Developers, nothing mindblowing in that. But the fact that Junior AQA and Junior Manual QA have equal Ranges is a bit surprising. Nevertheless, the Middle AQA Roles jump much higher than Middle Manual QA in both Max and the Median Salaries.

Salaries for Manual QA Specialists

Manual QA - the second biggest group of candidates on Skyworker. Their Median Salary Range for Seniors almost reaches the Median for AQA, but all other levels are offered much less.
