What is the average Front End Salary in 2024?


The average Front End developer salary ranges in 2024 for mid-level workers is $127,929 and for senior-level workers is $142,651.

Are Front End Salaries increasing as we move into 2024 from 2023?


Front End developer salaries increased on average by 6% year-over-year, which is above the IT industry average of 2% in 2024. Those just moving into the mid-level talent ranges saw a bigger increase of 9.1%, but a very senior software engineer in the front end arena has seen almost a 10% increase moving into 2024.


What is impacting Front End Developer salary growth?


While above the national average, this year's salary increase falls short of that from the past few years. Reasons for this vary, but a major component is businesses being more cautious in spending and investments compared to 2021 and 2022. While there is still a tech talent shortage for qualified front end engineers along with the rest of IT, companies are no longer offering double-digit salary bumps to lure workers away or keep employees happy.
