Frequently Asked Questions

Calculator

How does it work?

Toptal is the largest fully remote network of high-skilled freelancers in the world. We created this tool using our large, comprehensive database of vetted freelancers. Data is regularly updated and excludes hourly rates that fall in the 1-10th percentile and in the 90-100th percentile to remove outliers.

The Freelance Calculator empowers you to see how much you could earn as a freelancer, including what your hourly rate would need to be to match your current or desired salary based on the number of hours you work per week.

Calculations of weekly, monthly, and yearly salaries are determined by a one week unit of measure: hours per week multiplied by hourly rate. By default, values are 40 hours per week and the 25th percentile hourly rate. Monthly salaries are calculated as the summation of 4 weekly salaries, and yearly salaries are calculated as the summation of 52 weekly salaries.

What is the range and where do we get our data?

The hourly rate range reflected in this tool is based on the amounts most freelancers with this skill might earn in the 25th to 75th percentile. This tool also reflects expected rates in the top 10% and bottom 10% as starting and ending values. Several factors can influence your expected rate, including location, experience and competency in the particular skill, track record of success, and complimentary soft skills such as clear communication and leadership.

The calculator sources information from our large database of vetted freelancers. Data is regularly updated and excludes hourly rates that deviate substantially from the norm.

What is it like to freelance as a Azure Developer?

Microsoft Azure (formerly Windows Azure) is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft in 2010 for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centers. Azure provides software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including Microsoft and third-party software and systems. Azure developers design software applications or databases to accomplish a business’ goals in relation to cloud computing, virtual servers, and web hosting using Microsoft Azure applications. Azure developers are subject matter experts on the Microsoft Azure platform and its frameworks, including .NET, have familiarity with one or more programming languages such as C++ or JavaScript, and usually work as part of a larger team of programmers, QA testers, and project managers to design new products, or scale existing solutions.

Freelance Azure developers around the world can earn a salary between $40-75 per hour. As the market evolves and demand for Azure jobs increases, the Azure contractor hourly rate is likely to increase as well. Differences in freelance Azure developer rates are calculated based on engagement types, such as part-time or full-time, and location, such as on-site or remote.
