Full Stack Developer Salary Trends in the Netherlands
Average junior full stack developer salary trends
Average salaries for mid-level full stack developers with four to six years experience in the Netherlands rise by 45.5% to €52 692.
This makes it the most significant pay rise of their careers.
Why the significant increase? First, developers typically change jobs more frequently at this stage of their careers. 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.

Average senior full stack developer salary trends
Salary growth for full stack developers starts to slow once they become seniors.
Why? It’s standard for senior developers to experience a slowdown at this level of their careers, regardless of their role or tech stack. In addition to seniors generally changing jobs less often than junior and mid-level developers, companies also have to consider salary increases as a developer’s salary level becomes “more expensive”.
Senior full stack developers with at least six years of experience can expect a 6% increase giving them an average annual salary of €55 833. At this stage of their careers, they’re earning 6.9% and 8.5% less than Python and TypeScript developers with comparable experience, respectively.
Keep in mind
The data in this article is taken from OfferZen’s 2022 Netherlands report: State of the Software Developer Nation. In this article, ‘salary’ refers to the gross annual salary (before tax) provided by 510 survey respondents.
We only included salary insights for experience levels with enough data points to ensure that the amounts represent full stack developers in the country. That’s why we excluded entry-level developer salaries for this article.
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 map underlying trends by tracking 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 work. These factors all influence the salary a company will offer to a prospective hire. In addition, most developers are “fluent” in several languages, which will affect the final figures.
It’s also important to remember that every individual’s context is different. Salary is a personal conversation that should take place between employee and employer.
