Depending on what backend technology a developer is skilled in, pay might vary. For example a Node.js developer might receive a higher salary than a PHP developer. A lot of the differences have to do with job opportunities and availability of skilled developers. The less developers, the more demand, the higher the salary can be negotiated. Here’s a breakdown of salary by technology.
Average salary by city
It’s not an easy task estimating what developers are being paid across Austria. Since the market is a lot smaller than say Germany or the UK, there’s not much data to inform us where developers are earning the most and the least. For the most accurate estimates, it’s best to read what software developers as a whole are making on average in each city. Here are estimates from Stepstone which indicate a slight pay difference between cantons.
As a comparison, we can also look to Germany for more reliable estimates as they have far more developers. Generally, developers in Austria receive higher salaries than in Germany.
Salary by Company in Austria
Salary averages only go so far, sometimes it’s more helpful to see specific salaries at real companies to get an idea of what other backend developers are earning. These are not the best companies in Austria but a handful of some of the larger companies in the country where devs have reported salaries. Majority of these companies are paying backend developers between €40k - €50k. While far from the highest paying developer salaries, these salaries are generally considered to be good.
