Freelancing as an AWS Developer

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to individuals, companies, and governments. The AWS technology is implemented at globally distributed server farms and maintained by Amazon. AWS comprises 165+ services spanning computing, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, management, mobile, developer tools, and tools for the Internet of Things (IoT). Most of these services are offered through APIs for developers to use in their applications, rather than being visible for end users. An AWS developer is responsible for setting up, maintaining, and evolving the cloud infrastructure of web applications. AWS developers are expected to understand the core AWS services and apply best practices regarding security and scalability.

Freelance AWS developers can earn a salary of up to $100,100 per year, or an hourly rate of up to $55. As the hiring for freelance AWS developer jobs becomes more competitive, AWS developers are likely to see their AWS contractor rates go up, however this calculator will dynamically reflect current salary data. Other inputs that adjust a freelance AWS developer’s hourly rate include remote vs. on-site location, years of experience, and whether the requested client engagement is full-time or part-time.
