A week after the French government announced that talent.io is part of the French Tech 120 for the second consecutive year, the European selective tech recruitment platform, has just released a brand new study on the salaries of software developers in Europe. 

“Our report reveals that Munich is the city with the highest median salary for software developers (€70,000), followed by London (66,000€), Berlin (60,000€), Amsterdam (57,500€) and Paris (45,000€)” comments talent.io co-founder Nicolas Meunier.

What salary can software engineers expect to earn today? What’s a competitive salary from an employer perspective? What are the most in-demand technologies?

To answer these questions, talent.io analysed more than 100,000 job offers from recruiters to candidates. The report compares salaries and daily rates of both perm and freelance professionals, broken down per seniority and city (more than 10 cities are covered) and focuses on 4 main positions: Back-end, Front-end, Full Stack and Lead developers.

Nicolas continues: "Following the publication of our study on the state of the tech recruitment market in May 2020, talent.io continues to support the tech ecosystem by providing visibility on the recruitment of software developers in 2021".

We also produced a specific report on the French Tech Salaries, including Data, Product, DevOps and Management career paths.
