Survey: Developer Salaries Rising Again

The average software developer will make $5,000 more this year than last year.


Developer salaries are rising again after several years of very little growth, according to the annual Dr. Dobb's salary survey. For 2013, the average developer made $95,000, up from $90,000 in 2012. Software engineer will bring home $105,000, an increase from $101,000 last year.

Of course, where you live has an impact on how much you make. Those in the Pacific region bring home the most—$107,000—while those in the Midwest make the least—$90,000. The size of the employer also affects pay; those with more than $10 billion in revenue pay the best. Gender also plays a role, with female staff and managers earning less than their male counterparts.
