iOS / Full Stack Developer Compensation (Freelance / Salary)
December 19, 2012 12:40 AM Subscribe
I am wondering how much I can expect to make (range) from a freelance position / salary as an iOS developer? (rip-off / expected / stretch) Possible tips to best negotiate salary / contract rates? What should I market myself as when I can work the product stack? I have the most experience / feel the most comfortable doing iOS development work, but love all aspects of building tech products.

I am an iOS developer with about 2 years experience. I have about 5 years of software development experience and have recently graduated with a computer science degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. My last role was as an iOS developer at a large marketing agency on their Apple team. I also have several additional years internship experience while in college. I have also been involved in several positions in startups with iOS developer / founder roles.
I have received several offers but feel that they are way low, and would
like to know what I should expect for fair freelance / salary
rates. Currently living in Los Angeles but may soon relocate to the SF bay area.
