When it comes to software development, the biggest problem most companies face is lack of qualified people to do the job. The local market is usually super scarce, so more and more businesses choose to tap into the global talent pool. Indeed, this is the fastest and most efficient way to source the desired candidate. But how do you find the right specialists capable of building an enterprise React application? How do you navigate this immense talent ocean and find your special goldfish?   

We went through everything from Glassdoor to PayScale to show you the current situation on the market and compare React developer salary and hourly rates around the world. Check out what we’ve found. 

Please note that the salaries and hourly rates mentioned in this article don’t equal the cost of hiring offshore software developers through outsourcing companies. Read more about how offshore software development costs are formed here.

Average React developer salary and hourly rate 

React framework was first released in 2013. It was created by Facebook engineers in order to simplify the maintenance of the platform and generate more traffic. Seven years later, it’s really, really popular. Why does it matter? Because in the software development world, popularity is a sign of quality. 

When you decide to use a super popular framework like React, you can find a great developer almost anywhere in the world. And since it’s so widespread, the developers can access much more resources and tutorials, get professional advice from the community, and therefore speed up the development process

Indeed, React.js is extremely popular, hence the rates. But what about the other JavaScript frameworks? Sources say that the same goes for Angular and Vue. The rates are somewhat lower, but it will still cost you a lot to hire a developer locally. 

Here’s the average salary of Angular developers, according to PayScale.

Since it’s pretty expensive to hire developers locally, many companies prefer to look for talents overseas. Luckily, technology allows for that and you can get the same quality product even if your entire team is scattered around the world. To help you get a better picture, let’s compare React.js developer salary globally.

Where are the numbers coming from, you may ask? Why are developers’ hourly rates so different in these countries? The reason is very simple, purely economical. People are just as qualified in Ukraine as they are in the Netherlands or the US, but the cost of living in Eastern Europe is much, much lower than in any of these countries. 

In fact, Ukraine is one of the most profitable European locations when it comes to hiring skilled React.js developers. If you have a limited budget or simply can’t find enough qualified people in the local market, consider outsourcing Ukrainian developers. You can never go wrong with this region. 

Why Ukrainian React.js developers are the best 

If you are going to hire dedicated React.js developers, you should know that Ukraine is one of the most popular IT tech hubs in the world. This is the best place to outsource software development and everybody likes local teams for a couple of reasons. 

Convenient pricing

As you’ve already seen, React developer hourly rate in Ukraine is super affordable for the US client. 

Work ethics

Ukrainians are known as some of the most diligent and reliable workers in the world. It’s in the nation’s DNA, plus the unstable local economy keeps people motivated.

Good English 

Unlike many other popular outsourcing destinations, Ukrainians usually have good English level and clear pronunciation. There’s an in-house English teacher in almost every IT firm.

Outstanding skills 

Every year, Ukrainian universities and IT schools produce more and more software development experts. Be sure that most Ukrainians are certified, not self-taught.
