North American developer rates have traditionally been among the highest in the world. So if you have a limited project budget, you probably should not hunt for developers in this location. According to our estimation, the average yearly salary of a JS developer in the United States amounts to $98,500, followed by $73,300 in Canada and Mexico ($32,700).

Types of JS developers to choose from
A front-end developer is “the one” to take care of your application’s client-side (UI). They are knowledgeable in user experience and design and convert mock-ups into functional interfaces. The most obvious choice will be the programmers familiar with React, Vue.js, and Angular. These are the market’s most actively used (and loved) frameworks suitable for smaller and wide-scale projects.
If you already have a front-end engineer(s) on your team, you need back-end developers to build and maintain the app’s server-side functionality that connects data with the front end. A hint on technology: 43% of JS programmers use Node.js for building enterprise apps, and 85% utilize it in web app development. So having a strong Node.js developer(s) would be a good investment when you need to create a scalable and reusable server side.
Beyond seniority, you also need to consider specific technical skills directly impacting your budget. We’ve broken down the pricing ranges of the typical JS developers available on Upwork and their responsibilities to shed some light on this matter.

What you need to know about freelancers
Let’s quickly recap some relevant advantages and disadvantages of working with freelance developers before you take a definitive position in this regard.
Flexibility. Not bound by any bureaucracy, freelancers can be very flexible regarding deadlines and working hours.
Autonomy. When hiring individual freelancers, you have complete control over which freelancer is responsible for which aspects of the project, but you must source those skills separately.
Insufficient expertise. Finding developers with JS knowledge will be easy because it is so popular. However, they almost always frame themselves in a positive light but may indeed lack the knowledge needed in your project.
Code quality. You cannot check the code if you are not a qualified developer. So when working with freelance developers, they may underperform because they think you won’t tell the difference.
Naturally, this quality comes with higher pricing. But it also covers administration, team support, and tailored recruitment. But if your goal is to complete a team with no hassle on your side, then partnering with a reliable vendor is right for you.
What you need to know about outstaffing
We agree it’s tough to find the perfect balance between the cost-efficiency and quality of the work without risking any other aspects of the project. Working with dedicated developers has advantages and disadvantages as with any different model. Let’s talk about the positives first.
Proven expertise. Developers are hand-picked, together with you, in a custom hiring process. So you don’t have to worry that their portfolio is a scam.
High team engagement. The dedicated development team works only with you and is a part of your organization. As a result, there is a constant feedback loop between the teams.
Control and flexibility. You retain total control while taking advantage of the scalability and reduced administration.
Security. Dedicated developers work under regulations that restrict any exposure of sensitive data, ensuring that your project remains confidential.
Cost. The cost of hiring nearshore/offshore developers is significantly higher than that of freelance work because it includes several extra expenditures. Some of them might be redundant or unwanted in your case.
So, make an informed choice after evaluating all the benefits and drawbacks you have learned and following your project needs. Let’s not be strangers — you can always reach out to us, and we will gladly assist you in finding the best solution.
