Today, Angular is used by companies to build robust, scalable projects. The framework is considered “mature” compared to frameworks like React and Vue because Angular comes with more capabilities out of the box. Granted, the talent pool for Angular developers is smaller, and so is the demand, which shows when you compare salaries.
For this guide, we will be presenting our findings on Angular developer salary differences worldwide.
Let’s first explore Angular a bit more to see why companies and developers prefer it over the competition.
What makes Angular one of the most popular web frameworks?
We’re not exaggerating with the title for this section. In the latest StackOverflow survey, Angular was the #3 most popular web framework behind the aging yet incredibly powerful jQuery and the second-most popular, React.js.
But consider this: from a technical standpoint, jQuery and React are libraries, which doesn’t make the competition fully honest. So, when comparing “actual web frameworks”, it’s safe to say that Angular is #1.
Programmers we’ve spoken to describe TypeScript as the programmer’s best friend thanks to the strict adherence to software architecture it requires and the error checking it provides. The latter is extremely important when running any software, but especially in a production environment, where catching and fixing bugs is of utmost importance.
Taking it a step further, TypeScript is also beneficial for business owners and end-users. Business owners benefit from an architecturally sound product that has built-in reliability, while end-users get to enjoy the product without being frustrated by bugs and errors. This is why you see Angular being used in enterprise applications. Granted, that doesn’t mean React or Vue can’t be used in enterprise applications, just that the inherent qualities of Angular make it perfect for the job.
Let’s look at what you can build with a modern JS framework like Angular.
What can you build with Angular?
Thanks to a ton of out-of-the-box capabilities, Angular is considered a great fit not only for enterprise app development but many other types of apps.
Here’s what you can develop with Angular:
- Single-page applications (SPAs)
- Progressive web applications (PWAs)
- Enterprise-level dynamic web applications & dashboards
- Cross-platform applications (web, mobile and desktop)
Chances are that you use a SPA daily. Gmail, Netflix and Twitter are just a few examples of SPAs.
The main advantage of SPAs is improving user experience through interactivity. For example, instead of waiting for pages to load, users are treated to near-instant responses, much like what you see in a mobile app.
SEO used to be a concern, but it’s easy to retain your search rankings when switching to a SPA with best practices.
PWAs are the latest craze in web development. What started in Google has captured the attention of web development professionals all over the world. The beauty of PWAs is that they can be built with vanilla JS or any other framework — Vue, React or Angular.
PWAs take SPAs a step further because they can be set up to use offline. In addition, you can add push notifications, add PWAs to app stores as is, and the technology is supported by all browsers (including the latest iOS version).
Famous companies that use PWAs include Twitter, Starbucks, Forbes, The Weather Channel, and so on.
Enterprise-level dynamic web applications & dashboards
Angular is great for interactive dashboards, financial tools, and admin dashboards. Using Angular’s advantages of being robust and cross-platform ready, our clients at Bridge have created data-driven, automated dashboards — including analytics, statistics and management tools. As you know, the fiddle doesn’t play itself, so building an Angular enterprise app will require Senior-level Angular developers
Angular makes it easy to develop cross-platform apps thanks to code sharing. Code sharing is a concept that allows developers to “write once, use everywhere”, including any web browser, smartphone and desktop OS. Of course, not everyone needs cross-platform capabilities in their current project, but somewhere down the line, it could make sense to turn your web app into mobile, and Angular gives you the tools to do that.
In the next section, we’ll reveal our market research into the average salary for Angular developers worldwide, including the US, Canada, UK, and EU. Of course, it won’t come as a surprise that the average Angular developer salary in the US is the highest in the world, but salaries in some countries may surprise you.
Angular developer salaries around the world
What’s interesting to note here is that unlike in our PHP developer salary guide, Angular developer salaries tend to vary widely across the job boards. This might be because some salaries are for the deprecated Angular JS (a.k.a version 1.0) framework, while others are for the “2.0+” Angular framework. Just as a side note: Angular 1.0 will be supported by Google until December 31, 2021. Dramatically, once the clock strikes midnight, no security holes or other issues will be updated or fixed.
For countries outside the US, we looked at SalaryExpert figures as they best reflected what our recruiting partners have shown us and what our research shows.
Note: All listed salaries are gross earnings and do not include deductions according to each country’s tax system.
Angular developer salary in the USA
Below is a table of average annual salaries, entry-level, and senior Angular developer salary figures across the five job boards we analyzed.
For individual cities, we chose New York, Chicago, and San Francisco based on SalaryExpert figures.
Here’s the average Angular software engineer salary in three major US cities:
If you’re confused by the numbers here, and further on in this guide, we’d like to clarify that these are averages — so the overall average and average entry-level (1-3 years experience) and senior (8+ years of experience) Angular front end developer salary. If you look at the variance in salaries on levels.fyi you’ll see that it’s not just the base salary that matters, but also stock options and bonuses. Bonuses and stock options are company-specific and aren’t tied down to a particular region, so we didn’t include them in our analysis.
Moving on, we’ll look at the rest of North America, followed by Argentina, the UK, Germany, Ukraine, India, and Australia. The currencies were converted using xe.com in July 2021.

Angular developer salary in Mexico
We at Bridge know a lot about the Mexican tech scene. We chose Mexico as a priority location for finding talent when we first conceived of Bridge because we knew the level of tech skills and proximity to the US would be a killer combination. The level of tech and domain proficiency that talented Mexican software engineers have is Silicon Valley-caliber, while salary expectations are much more competitive.

Angular developer salary in Germany
Germany has a growing startup scene and a growing community of software developers. Interestingly, the front end Angular developer salary is surprisingly higher than PHP developer salary. StackOverflow’s survey results show that backend developers are paid $4k more, globally, than frontend developers.

Angular developer salary in Ukraine
Ukraine is notorious for being an IT hotspot. Major IT hubs include Kyiv, Lviv, and Kharkiv. We found it puzzling that the Junior Angular developer salary in Ukraine is so low compared to the average Senior salary. Perhaps this is an indication that titles are subjective, and it takes a proper interview to understand what skills the software engineer has.
For Ukraine, we chose to use data from our research, which we put into our Budget Calculator and converted the monthly salaries to annual salaries.
- Average – $26k USD
- Entry-level – $10k USD
- Senior – $48k USD
Angular developer salary in India
One interesting fact you may not know about India is how its outsourcing market boomed leading up to the Year 2000 problem (Y2K). Indian software engineers helped US companies save billions, and it was all done remotely. India’s outsourcing is still a major industry and continues to attract a young generation of tech-savvy talent.
Even with the enormous talent pool, salaries aren’t as high as you’d think in India. We found some interesting insights about the entry-level Angular developer salary compared to Senior-level salaries in India and Ukraine. It turned out that Senior Ukrainian Angular developers make roughly 2.6 times more than their Indian colleagues.
₹1.13 million INR or $15k USD
₹1.17 million INR or $15k USD
₹1.18 million INR or $15k USD
₹1.22 million INR or $16k USD
₹810k INR or $10k USD
₹843k INR or $11k USD
₹851k INR or $11k USD
₹876k INR or $11k USD
₹1.4 million INR or $18k USD
₹1.48 million INR or $19k USD
₹1.49 million INR or $19k USD
₹1.54 million INR or $20k USD
Angular developer salary in Australia
A recent KPMG report showed that Australia had a record-breaking year of Venture Capital (VC) funding — $1.6 billion invested in 2020 compared to 1.48 billion in 2019.
Angular developers in Australia make about as much as US-based developers outside of Silicon Valley. It’s intriguing because the continent is not necessarily known for having a lot of tech talent and seems to be going through a tech talent shortage so that may be why salaries are as high as they are.
$119k AUD or $87k USD
$121k AUD or $89k USD
$114k AUD or $84k USD
$126k AUD or $92k USD
$84k AUD or $61k USD
$85k AUD or $62k USD
$81k AUD or $59k USD
$89k AUD or $65k USD
$148k AUD or $109k USD
$150k AUD or $110k USD
$142k AUD or $104k USD
$157k AUD or $115k USD
We highlighted at the beginning of this guide that Angular gives developers everything they need to build performant, scalable, and robust applications. And that’s the main bargaining chip Angular developers have when negotiating salary — their accomplishments, and the value they bring to an organization.
In addition to experience, Angular developer salary heavily depends on location. At Bridge, we recruit mainly in Mexico, Argentina, and Ukraine, so we know those job markets best. And as a global recruiter, we understand the value of remote work, especially during the everlasting tech talent shortages in developed countries like the US and Australia. That’s why we make the additional effort of vetting software engineers before we present them to clients.
Our goal is to provide the tech talent that will help your company grow. Check out our Budget Calculator to identify a team setup that fits your budget.
