A Linux developer is responsible for developing, debugging, and documenting computer programs for the Linux operating system and related software applications.

The responsibilities of a Linux developer are similar to those of computer programmers in general and may include using C++, Python, or other programming languages to write codes or instructions that the device can understand.

You can hire a part-time or full-time entry-level (junior) Linux developer in the Philippines from an hourly salary rate of around $4.00 per hour. 

If you’re looking to hire an intermediate or more experienced Linux developer, then we would advise that you set a salary budget of a little bit higher. 

On average, expect to pay between ⅓ and ⅕ of what it would cost you to hire the equivalently skilled developer in the USA. This means you should save anywhere between 66% and 80% on salary costs by hiring a Linux programmer in the Philippines.

Entry-level (junior): $4.00 per hour or more. This would work out at around $640 per month if you were to hire the developer full-time (160 hours per month).

Intermediate: Budget from $5.00 per hour. I’d suggest setting a range of between from between $5.00 and $12.00 per hour.

Expert (Senior): $6.75 per hour and upwards is what you should expect to pay for an experienced senior Linux developer. This person should have upwards of five years of experience. 

You can find and hire part-time or full-time Linux web developers in the Philippines on VirtualStaff.ph. 

The benefit of hiring developers in the Philippines is the fact you will save significant sums of money on salary costs, while at the same time, you won’t see any compromise in the quality of the work that your Linux developers do.
