Whatever ideas or tasks you might have skilled JS developers at Echo with years of experience can deliver your projects with great devotion and meeting high standards.
“The most important single aspect of software development is to be clear about what you are trying to build.” — Bjarne Stroustrup
All over the world, a wide variety of companies and agencies offer customized JS development services, and with this comes the challenge of choosing a reliable company to do the tasks for you. Aside from obviously the location of your chosen partner, the type of service provided by a certain organization must also be taken into account. In line with this, you actually have several options, which can either be a full-fledged team that offers turnkey services on demand, or a recruiting or outsourcing agency whose task is to help you match with the most relevant JS software engineers.
However, if your project only requires minor tweaks or limited monitoring here and there, it is impractical to employ an employee full-time. It would be best to simply hire a freelancer on the websites listed below to get your job done.

Getting a perfect match is really hard, especially for someone who’s unfamiliar with front-end technologies. Here are some recommendations you might want to consider:
- Ask for the input of your friends/stakeholders/partners.
- Apply for an ad on matchmaking companies such as DevTeam.Space, Aciety, YouTeam, etc.
- Look for an outsourcing company through search engines.
Whatever option you choose, crosschecking references and looking into one’s employment history are key factors in identifying which applicants and potential team members would be the best fit for you.

However, the supply of university graduates who are knowledgeable and experts in using this language is insufficient for this demand. That said, recruiters and businesses turn to hire remote employees from other countries to fill these gaps.
Aside from this, doing so allows them to save up on costs as international services are usually cheaper than hiring local talents.
Lastly, sometimes, by hiring software engineers from around the world you can find real gems abroad who are able to disrupt the industry.
The average JS developer salary in the world
There is no one size fits all answer to this question as you have to take into account the fact that various companies in different regions have different ways of going about things.
Put more concretely, even within a single company, there are already large differences in compensations for different levels of employees—junior developers, seniors, architects, etc.
What more if you compare salaries from inter-nation or inter-region. For example, the Western world is accustomed to having annual salaries, while the Eastern counterpart is used to giving out monthly salaries.

Comparing annual salaries in various countries, the United States is predictably on the top with its average salaries over $100,000 per year before taxes. California is still number one, but we won’t be surprised if Texas can become the next Silicon Valley in the states.
The UK and Australia are keeping 2nd and 3rd places as their salaries offered to JS developers are around $70,000 on average. Northern and Western European companies offer approximately $50,000 (42K euros) to their local middle-level FE software engineers. Eastern Europe and Ukraine, in particular, share very similar median rates to Latin America which are $25-35K per year. Indian specialists expect around $13,000 (1 million rupees) per year.
While India seems to be the most cost-effective option, the cheapest solutions are not always the best. The truth is that you should be ready to pay for quality, regardless of the country your developer comes from.
The most obvious answer is to get the real numbers from the local IT platforms or job boards like DOU. It can be $1,800, $3,500 or $5,000, which indicates the monthly salary of the developer in USD:
- Frontend Developer Typescript / Junior at Jiffsy | $1500–2000.
- Senior Front-End (VueJS) Developer at Synergetica | $5000–6500.
- ReactJS developer at ShipHawk | $4000–5000.
- Front-End Developer (React/Vue) at Atlas IAC | $1500–3000.
But, there’s always a but, as you know.
The biggest mistake CTOs, product managers and startup founders make when hiring remotely and comparing developers is they ignore the embedded costs. In fact, there are numerous and substantial overhead costs (up to 50%) on top of the salaries mentioned above. For example:
- Recruiting and HR management.
- Paid vacations, public holidays and sick leaves.
- Payroll, taxes and legal support.
- Workplace setup, hardware and software.
- Professional education reimbursement.
And if you choose a hard way to hire Front-End (JS) programmers directly on your own, you need to take care of these tasks.
As an alternative, you can work with a tech partner such as Echo and focus on your core business goals instead. Going this route will save you a considerable amount of time and energy.
