Everyone can have a job they love.
Since developers know what’s best for...well, developers, we decided to ask them what they value most when considering a job or when they are making big career changes.
If you are a developer, help the companies and the community learn by participating in this survey.
If you are a company looking to employ or trying to reflect the workforce’s satisfaction - here, you’ll find some of the answers.
We’ve made this interactive infographic so users can explore data that refreshes every hour. If you like the project, please help spread the word by participating and sharing!
Thank you for caring about the community. Now let’s get down to business. 🙂
We asked developers to rate the following job factors on a scale from 1 to 10
(1 is Irrelevant and 10 Important):
The chart below shows the average ratings (Scored 1 to 10), split by job factors between all survey responses.
Surveyed developers by seniority
The survey so far shows that
Product, Org. Size, Options, Benefits and Industry show an increase of interest over experience,
while Definition, Team, Tech, Salary, Location and Commute tend to become less important.
And here's a breakdown of each factor we asked to rate:
Salary loses 0.36/10 interest over time
Tech loses 0.24/10 interest over time
Definition gains 0.02/10 interest over time
Team gains 0.23/10 interest over time
Industry loses 0.04/10 interest over time
Product loses 0.15/10 interest over time
Options loses 0.56/10 interest over time
Location gains 0.67/10 interest over time
Commute loses 0.23/10 interest over time
Org. Size loses 0.23/10 interest over time
Benefits loses 1.29/10 interest over time
Out of the 290 developers that answered, 214 identified as male,69 as female and 7 as other.
The interactive map below helps you explore the relevance of every factor by country. The results are based on the average values collected for each one of the four countries.
You can click on each point of the legend to isolate them, or in the individual countries to see their stats.
The module below breaks down each of the values we asked developers to evaluate, to display how the four countries scored on average, from highest to lowest.
