Make benchmarking salary ranges easier

After one of the hardest funding years in a decade, widespread budget cuts, hiring stops and retrenchments, the tech hiring market now favours the employer.

However, it doesn’t necessarily mean finding the right fit has become easier. It’s also not made hiring good ones any cheaper.

To help make benchmarking salary ranges easier, we’ve put together this salary report using incoming data from over 2990 South African developers who participated in our ongoing Developer Nation Survey.
