not sure if this is the right place to ask, but giving it a try and you tell me if it's in the wrong place! Wondering a bit about contracting rates for clojure/script work in EU (Spain specifically). I'm moving into more freelancer/contractor basis after working full-time, and wondering what kind of rates people are offering for hourly work. If you're comfortable responding here I'd be very happy in receiving a PM. Or if someone knows any resources that lists average salaries/contracting rates for clojure/script specifically, that'd be much appreciated as well 🙂


I know of people that receive from 30EUR/h to 200EUR/h. Wouldn't dare to plot a distribution based on this small sample.


Now that I think of it, I'm not sure that those rates are specifically about CLJ[S]. But at the same time, I really don't think it matters that much. I specifically work only with clients that allow me to select my stack, or at least the languages.


Yeah, I'd expect rates to be all over the place... and depend far more on the companies acting as clients and how much they value work produced by contractors (and also depend on how the contractors market their skills).


And that would be the same as in the US: I've seen USD rates spread all over a similar range.


Well, just having the range 30-200 is useful as well so thanks for sharing that 🙂

there is also the matter of developers who charge their hourly rate on a minute-by-minute basis versus those who just round to the nearest hour, or pad out to half day, etc. so "$100/hr" when charged in minute-by-minute increments can end up looking more like $25/hr depending on efficiency, productivity etc.
