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.

Freelance Salesforce Developer salary

The Salesforce contract market is also very lucrative — check out the average freelance Salesforce Developer rate in the following countries:

  • US — $78–$160 per hour
  • UK — £500–£690 per day
  • France — €540–€780 per day
  • Australia — $1,000–$1,350 per day

While one could live very comfortably as a contract Salesforce professional, our research found that 78% of freelancers would consider going permanent, while 10% would rule out returning to full-time work completely.

Our salary survey was compiled using nearly 28,000 data points, including information from 22,022 registered job vacancies on our website, 1,973 actual job placements made by Mason Frank, and 3,714 responses to our global salary questionnaire. This mixture of objective and subjective data enables us to produce an accurate reflection of the Salesforce environment. All information is accurate as of December 1 2017.
