How Much Can You Earn as a Remote Programmer or Developer?
It’s quite common to find the IT guy from your 9-5 working from home for most of the week as most of the work can be taken care of remotely. When it comes to pay the range can vary depending on if you are a computer programmer, a software developer, a software engineer, an app developer or a web developer.
According to this news article, the range can be from $55,000 to over $100,000 annually depending on your knowledge and experience. Of course, if you are seeking entry level information technology jobs then this rate of pay will seem quite competitive and if your outside of the US/UK even more attractive.
As an IT freelancer, you can earn between $55 to $80 per hour. Although this might seem a bit more than an employed member of staff doing the same job don’t forget that you are a freelancer so as a remote worker benefits are not included in your independent hourly contractor rate.
Location Will Not Be a Problem
One thing to remember, never be put off by the advertised remote locations. The key word to look for is ‘remote’. You just need to know that you have the abilities and attributes, your qualifications are on point and that you are motivated and willing to sell your skills.
That’s one of the great advantages of remote IT jobs you can be completely location independent.
Don’t forget if you’re based in places like Latin America or the Caribbean like me your timezone is similar to the East Coast of America and If you’re in Ireland or even Ghana you have the same timezone as London and close to other European timezones.
One important thing you must have though is a reliable high-speed internet service. Take a look at a previous blog I posted to get an idea. How To Find Remote Work
