Front-End Developer Salary in Israel, Survey.
Published on 30 October 2011
So I have conducted a little survey with a short set of questions (I know it's not too comprehensive, but it was put together rather quick).
These are the questions that were asked:
- Your current salary in New Israeli Shekel
- Your hourly rate in USD for hour-based projects
- Full years of age
30 professionals have filled the form, the survey was anonymous, all answers were optional.
So, here's some of the information:
The white circles represent the developers who have participated in the survey.
- Current Salary, in NIS
- Hourly rate, in USD
- Years of exprience
Average age is 28.5, most of the applicants are male (only 2 female developers participated). Average salary is around 17500 NIS.
19% of the applicants are freelancers who don't have set monthly salary. 81% are employees.
All of the applicants have worked more than 2 years in the field: 42% have more than 5 years of experience. 19% have 3-4 years of exp. 14% have 4-5 years of exp. 6% have 2-3 years of exp.
This is a bit dated already, well, the times they are a changin’. But in conclusion, if you know JS and you've got about 5 years of experience you shouldn't ask for anything less than ₪22,000. One US Dollar costed 3.43 Israeli shekels at the time of writing, so 22,000 was about $6400 back then (don't forget that's before the taxes!).
