Programming continues to be one of the most-sought-after skills in modern professionals and, appropriately, the average Salesforce Developer salary in the United States is upwards of $110k. A junior-level Salesforce Developer tends to earn around $110,897, while mid- and senior-level professionals earn an average of $137,900 and $159,558 respectively.
This is according to Mason Frank International’s Salesforce Salary Survey, a comprehensive study of the Salesforce environment. In our findings, we determined the average salary for each job role and experience level across the Salesforce landscape, as well as information on company culture, individual product proficiency, and overall sentiments on the Salesforce ecosystem from those within the Ohana.
Salesforce Devs are among the highest-paid professionals across the entire Salesforce landscape, which reflects the level of technical knowledge required to perform this job role. It is no surprise to see that Salesforce Developer certifications are so popular, with professionals looking to enhance their knowledge and give themselves every possible advantage in a competitive job market.
Salesforce Developer salaries are roughly the same as they were 12 months ago, with minor deviations of less than $2,000 across all experience levels. This demonstrates stability in the job market, which is great news for those working in Salesforce programming and development.
