You can hire part-time or full-time Android developers in the Philippines for between $4.00 per hour and $25.00 per hour. The salary rate will depend on the individual developer and the skill and experience that they have. The best way to see the real salary rates is to simply browse the VirtualStaff.ph database.

Junior Android Developer Salary

It will cost you between $4.00 to $8.00 per hour to hire a full-time Junior Android Developer in the Philippines. By full-time, I mean if you’re hiring somebody to be part of your team on a long-term basis. (e.g 9-5 Monday to Friday).

What is a Junior Android Developer?

It is entirely up to you and the developer to define what you both classify as junior, intermediate, and senior. However, generally speaking, a junior Android Developer is usually either fresh out of college, or somebody with less than 2 years of experience.

Intermediate Android Developer Salary

Expect to budget at a minimum of $5.00 per hour for an experienced and competent intermediate Android Developer. 

Our advice would be that you should set a budget of perhaps between $5.00-$12.00 per hour in order to not limit yourself in terms of the quality of developers that you can choose from.

What is an Intermediate Android Developer?

Intermediate developers can develop code on their own, but usually don’t yet have the ability to lead a team. 

Usually, an Intermediate Android Developer is someone who has between 2 and 5 years of experience, although some people with 10+ years of experience can still be classified as Intermediate Developers, depending on their specific skill level.

Senior Android Developer Salary

Senior Android Developers in the Philippines usually command a salary of between $8.00 and $25.00 per hour.

As a rule of thumb, look to pay your Philippines-based Android developer around ¼ to ⅓ of what an equivalently skilled Senior Android Developer would cost you in the USA.

To attract the best Android developers, we would strongly suggest that you be slightly flexible in what you are prepared to pay, especially if you want to attract the top talent.

What is a Senior Android Developer?

Senior Android Developers should have a proven track record in developing and maintaining existing apps.

You should expect a Senior Android Developer to have at least 5+ years of experience and be able to demonstrate high-level skill in terms of programming.
