Why the significant increases during the early stages of their careers? Junior developers typically change jobs more frequently. This gives them a chance to negotiate a higher market-related salary than the inflationary increases developers can expect if they stay with one company. Companies hiring developers at these career stages are more inclined to offer what might seem a significant increase because the salary range is still not that high compared to those for more experienced developers.

Why does salary growth slow down for senior developers? In addition to senior developers generally changing jobs less often than juniors, companies are less inclined to offer big increases on larger salaries.
Keep in mind
Average salaries are single data points and only one part of a bigger story. Many respondents may earn significantly more or significantly less than these averages. However, we hope to show underlying trends by mapping the average salaries for different experience levels.
These averages should not be used to estimate what your actual salary will or should be. Salaries depend on the company size, industry, individual, perks and nature of the work. These factors all influence the salary a company will offer to a prospective hire. In addition, most developers are “fluent” in several languages and work across multiple roles, which will also affect the final figures.
