Appointment of CEO of US IT Recruitment Platform Josh Brenner “At the same time, we are currently in the midst of a‘ great resignation ’where employees are leaving their jobs at record rates,” he said.
“During the COVID-19 epidemic, there is time for self-reflection as many people are rethinking their career paths from a new perspective. Some decided not to work in the office again, while others maintained better well-being and work-life balance. As a result, the turnover rate has increased and the demand for skilled technicians has increased.
This trend is also reflected in the average salaries of software developers. According to Highyard The average annual salary of a software developer in the United States is steadily rising from $ 146,000 in 2019 to $ 152,000 last year and $ 153,000 this year.
