These days, web development is a need for any business - it attracts huge investments and can kick-start businesses.
 
As for the tools mainly used for development, JavaScript is riding the wave right now. StackOverflow has been naming it the most popular programming language for six years straight. React, as one of the most popular JS libraries is also the first choice for interface developers. It offers some of the best web development tools for mobile and single-page applications.
 
A leader by the lines of code written, JS is just as dominant when it comes to tech talent. According to the US Bureau of Statistics, there are over 1,5 million JavaScript developers in the States alone. React is considered one of the top frameworks the language has to offer.
 
With such a huge competition, one can’t help but wonder if developers manage to find React JS jobs and get paid well. To answer all the possible questions, read full article.
 
Connecticut - the biggest slice of cake?

Being asked to name the best state for React JS developers to work in, you would probably throw in a few rather obvious answers: New York, California, etc. However, statistics are surprising - according to Goroo, if you want your salary expectations to be met, Connecticut, and Massachusetts are the places to look at.
 
Top 5 states ranked by JS developer salary
 
  • Connecticut - $103 289 per year;
  • Massachusetts - $101 000 per year;
  • New York - $100 744 per year;
  • Virginia - $99 202 per year
  • Georgia - $96 600

The average salary of a JS developer who knows how to create React app in the “Nutmeg” state reaches over $103 000 per year. That’s an extremely competitive rate, though Massachusetts is close by with $101 000 of salary for a hire that will work to improve the user experience.

What’s outside the States?

It’s no secret that big companies with ambitious web development services are mostly concentrated in the US. Europe and Asia mostly make their money by organizing outsourcing and distributed teams. According to PayScale, the salary of JavaScript framework developers on the European continent is exponentially lower than that of their American colleagues.

When salary is not in the game

In the age of startups, salary is not the only way to hire a developer. Many businesses choose to hire by giving away equity points. The idea has its own upsides: increasing engagement of employees, a possibility to earn more than an average cap would allow to, bootstrapped startups can attract talent even if they don’t have enough to afford website development costs.
 
However, with pump-and-dump schemes we’ve seen in crypto, startups that cease to exist leaving nothing but a WIX page behind, it’s understandable that JS developers would rather not work for equity points.
 
Conclusions
 
React JS is one of the most popular web programming languages in the world thanks to the huge amount of libraries and high functionality. It is used to build a business website or an app and is famous for its impeccable performance.
 
Statistically, React JS developer salary can reach over $100K per year in the United States. In Europe, however, the market isn’t that blooming - React developers can hope for approximately $60K per year.
 
In the startup environment, equity share is another common form of payment. However, good developers are wary about such a form of collaboration due to huge risks involved. Forms of payment are typically one of the React JS interview questions
