Ruby and Javascript contractor rate survey

by Adam Loving on March 7, 2013

I sent an informal survey to friends and Hacker News readers yesterday. The survey was to determine the current hourly rates for Ruby and JavaScript contractors. Below is the pivot table summarizing the results. You can take the survey here and see the raw results here.

My conclusion: there is a lot of variance among experienced developers. Rates north of $100/hour are attainable (but you can’t expect it as the status quo).
