Other interesting results from the Compass survey:
- Mobile developers get paid the most, on average, followed by backend developers then frontend developers.
- Working as an engineer for startups paid more than working for non-startups which, in turn, paid more than freelancing.
- Among startups, the biggest (51-200 employees) with the most funding (series B) paid engineers the most.
The survey also looked at how salary and benefits for engineers differed by country, experience, and role. Below is an infographic produced by Compass illustrating the results; you can read more details on the survey and their methodology on the Compass blog.
