JavaScriptは、HTMLやCSSと並んで、Web開発に使われる3大言語の一つです。HTMLはブラウザ上でのWebページの構造を、CSSはスタイルを担当しますが、JavaScriptはインタラクティブ性を提供します。JavaScriptはすべての最新のWebブラウザでサポートされており、大多数のWebサイトで採用されています。これは単にウェブの言語です。以下のように スタックオーバーフローの2019年レポートJavaScriptは6年連続で最も一般的に使用されているプログラミング言語です。この人気の高さが JavaScript 開発者の平均給与に影響を与えていると信じた方がいいでしょう。さらに、当社独自のデータによると グローバルにJavaScript開発者を採用したい企業の70%.

JavaScriptが台頭してきた理由は、誰にでもわかるわけではありません。JavaScript は Netscape によって、プログラミングを簡単にするための軽量なスクリプト言語として 10 日間 (!) に渡って作成されました。目標はウェブの標準言語にすることではありませんでしたが、最終的にはそうなりました。実際、ブラウザで動作する唯一の言語の一つであり、フロントエンド開発者になりたい人は誰もがJavaScriptを知っていなければなりません。

At the same time, JavaScript is relatively easy to learn and a developer who knows another programming language can start coding in JavaScript without too much difficulty. For aspiring or entry-level developers, JavaScript is often the first-choice programming language thanks to its simplicity and versatility. All of that affects a JavaScript developer’s salary on many levels. Of course, there are many other important factors, such as level of experience, location, and the knowledge of various JavaScript frameworks.

If you aren’t looking for JavaScript developers, you can also find JavaScript salary numbers for other technologies like Java, .NET, or SQL.

JavaScript programmer salary depending on frameworks

JavaScript was released in 1995. As the language became much more complex, new JavaScript frameworks emerged (originally, jQuery was the most popular one) and changed the landscape forever. Frameworks like Angular, React, and Node.js have since introduced order and structure through the implementation of MVC patterns.

What is important in the salary context though, is that not every JavaScript developer is proficient in all the frameworks. Let’s take a closer look at the salaries of JavaScript developers with more specific skillsets.

Node.js developer salary

Node.js has been the biggest game-changer in JavaScript as it made coding on the server side possible. It was introduced when Google Chrome released its V8 Engine and became the most popular JavaScript frameworks, used by 49.9% professional developers. Although JavaScript is the language of the web and as such, considered as front-end technology, Node.js is used on the back-end.

アングラーJS 開発者給与

AngularJS is the second the most popular JavaScript framework (after Node.js)  among professional developers according to Stack Overflow. It is widely used for building compelling web applications, such as Freelancer, Crunchbase, Google Express, and many more. The average salary of an AngularJS developer is higher than the salary of a developer who has mastered Node.js.

React developer salary

React is an extremely popular JavaScript framework used to build user interfaces. Although it’s less popular than AngularJS (React is used by 28.3% of professional developers, while Node.js by 49.9% according to スタックオーバーフロー), it’s their most favorite one. The same report states that 64.9% of developers love React. It’s the highest score among all JavaScript frameworks. Plenty of well-known websites, such as Facebook, Instagram, Yahoo!, Khan Academy, Netflix, and The New York Times has been built using React.

Full-stack JavaScript developer salary

JavaScript developer salary Full Stack ZipRecruiterOnly ZipRecruiter gives an average full-stack JavaScript programmer salary. According to them, it’s $112,522 which is slightly higher than an average JavaScript developer salary. The reason behind this lack of data may be a wide definition of what a full-stack JavaScript developer does. At the moment, one of the most popular technology stacks in JavaScript are: MeteorJS, Firebase + AngularJS, LAMP, MEAN (MongoDB, Express.js, AngularJS, and Node.js), and MERN (MongoDB, Express.js, ReactJS, and Node.js). Frameworks are also changing rapidly and a full-stack developer must be a jack of all trades.

Other factors that increase a JavaScript developer salary

Knowledge of various JavaScript frameworks plays a crucial role in determining salary. Let us not forget about other factors that also shape it, like additional skills, such as:

  • An understanding of web markup, including HTML5 and CSS3,
  • An understanding of JavaScript libraries and frameworks, not only the already mentioned React, Node.js, and AngularJS, but also jQuery, KnockoutJS, or BackboneJS,
  • The ability to work with AJAX, asynchronous request handling, partial page updates,
  • Familiarity with browser rendering behavior and performance,
  • Soft skills, such as excellent communication skills, or the ability to work independently and in a team.

JavaScript is a popular and versatile language that allows building on the front-end, back-end, as well as mobile apps and browser extensions. At the same time, the number of possible skills is so wide that there is a marketwide gap between developers with the right skills and demand.
