A Modern Day Front-End Development Stack

The modern front-end development stack is versatile and dynamic, with dozens of open source frameworks and components to make use of. However, the core stack remains unchanged, consisting of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript/TypeScript.

Additional front-end development tools and skills that are currently in demand include:

  • JavaScript frameworks (Angular, ReactJS, Vue, etc.)
  • CSS libraries (Bootstrap, Material Design CSS Frameworks, etc.)
  • CSS preprocessors (SASS, LESS, Stylus)
  • Task Runners, Build Tools, and Process Automation Tools (Webpack, angular-cli)
  • RESTful services and APIs
  • Version Control Systems (e.g. Git)
  • Content Management Systems (CMS) and eCommerce platforms (e.g. WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento)
  • Testing (unit testing, UI testing, end-to-end [E2E] testing)
  • Responsive design
  • Cross-Browser development
  • Web components

If you are looking to hire Javascript developers, some of the most important front-end development frameworks your candidates should know are:

  • React
  • Angular (both AngularJS, also referred to as Angular 1.x, and the newer versions of the framework: Angular 2+ or simply Angular are very popular)
  • Vue

Despite the wide variety of available tools, many developers still prefer to use pure Javascript over the aforementioned frameworks.

What Is the Average Front-End Developer Salary in the USA?

However, these numbers differ from source to source. Glassdoor.com estimates the median front-end developer salary in the US to be almost $89k, while a leading job search portal, Indeed.com, states that a $103k salary is the average for front-end developers in the USA.

Naturally, front-end developer salaries differ greatly from state to state, and even from city to city within the same state. For example, Austin and Denver, both located in Texas, have an almost $7,000 difference. Meanwhile, front-end developers in San Francisco earn almost $26,000 more on average than their counterparts in Los Angeles.

As we can see, average salaries grow with experience. This means that front-end developers with 10+ years of experience can expect to earn more than $100k on average.

Front-End vs Back-End vs Full-Stack: Which Web Development Skill Set Should You Be Looking for?

Web development consists of several layers. These are: Front-end (UI), back-end (server), APIs connecting the two, and the database where information is sourced. With so many layers, it usually takes several specialists to build a fully-fledged web application.  

  • Front-end developers are usually more UI-focused. They need to have a good understanding of the principles of web design and usability, in addition to knowledge of development tools.
  • Back-end engineers can deal with the business logic of an app or create an inner structure for a website. They are usually more focused on architecture and performance.
  • There are also developers that combine the listed skill sets, known as full-stack web developers. These engineers can build both the internal application logic and the consumer-facing elements of a web application. This means that they should be well-versed in front-end technologies and backend stack alike.

While hiring a full-stack developer instead of two dedicated developers for front- and back-end seems like a reasonable option, it is important to understand that one person cannot replace a team of specialists with a more specialized focus.

Full-stack developers are often less competent with front- and back-end development than the dedicated professionals in each. In this case, the saying “jack of all trades, master of none” often rings especially true.

Moreover, experienced full-stack developers are harder to find and are priced accordingly. An average full-stack developer salary in the US is at the $110,762 mark, according to indeed.com.

Most business owners understand the challenges of hiring a full-stack developer. Indeed.com job trends clearly show that there are more job postings for front-end and back-end developers separately than there are for full-stack web developers.

From this, we can ascertain that most business owners prefer hiring specialists for each respective role, rather than looking for a silver bullet solution.

Stack Overflow research further proves that front-end developers (as well as back-end specialists) are currently in high demand. There are almost two candidates for each front-end job opening, while the supply of full-stack developers is clearly outpacing the demand.

In conclusion

If you are looking to hire skilled front-end engineers remotely, understanding the trends in the job market is a good way to start. First of all, make sure to specify all the requirements of the position and set realistic budget expectations. We hope that the information provided above will serve as a good starting point in your search.
