The Difference in Skill Levels in the Philippines, Russia and the US

 

How do the skills match up between the U.S. (a high income country) versus Russia (middle income), and the Philippines (a lower income country)? The results might be surprising to some of you!

 

First, how different are pay rates between these countries?

You can hire a Philippines based web developer for example for a salary of anywhere from $3 per hour to $14 per hour. (Around $5,000 to $25,000 per year).  The equivalent “range” in the U.S. would be $50,000 - $150,000 per year. For Russia, it would be $20,000 to $60,000.

The range varies widely depending on experience and the city the person lives in. However, this doesn’t tell you very much as you need to compare the skill level of the people you are hiring.

Ideally you want to compare people with similar skill levels. Check this out:
