An Unofficial ColdFusion Developer Salary Survey

Do you know the present salary rate for ColdFusion developers?

Once there was an Unofficial ColdFusion Developer Salary Survey page somewhere on the net. It was very handy the few times I needed it. I went looking for it today and discovered that the page is dead. I turned to dice.com and monster.com to find current ColdFusion developer salary information, and the pay, according to those sites, varies from minimum wage to more than $125,000 per year. Most of job postings are careful not to mention salary at all, while others posts offer rates for senior developers that are lower than the rates offered for entry level positions. Very confusing. I think it would be immensely useful to all of us if we had a better understanding of the market rate for ColdFusion developers.

I have created a new Unofficial ColdFusion Developer Salary Survey page. All you have to do is enter your current figures, how much you think you are really worth, and then hit the Enter key.

  Top Salary of ColdFusion Developers in US is $312,000.00 and average salary is $83,586.00

Thanks for the salary resource. I'm curious your calculations which derive the hourly rate from the salary and vise versa, seem off to me.

For instance if I put in an hourly rate of 45.00 you automatically calculate a salary of 90,000/year when in fact 45.00/hr is 93,600.00/year. Assuming 40 hours in a work week, and 52 weeks per year [ (hourly_rate * 40) *52] .

I looked at your code, and you're multiplying the hourly rate by 2000. Presumably the number of work hours in a year, but there are actually 2080 work hours in a year (again assuming a 40 hour work week). 2000 hours assumes a work week which is 38.461 hours long, which just seems like a strange number assume.

Anyway, just thought I'd drop this line in an effort to keep your numbers as accurate as possible. :)

Thanks again for the great resource!

This is one of the things you vaguely remember you was unorthodox for a reason but can’t remember that reason at all. Anyway, I changed it to 2080. Seems to be the correct value now. Thanks Chris.

Maybe due to most people get at least two weeks of vacation. 40+40 = 80 Just my guess.
