SQL (or Structured Query Language) is a declarative, domain-specific programming language initially released in 1986 that is used in many relational databases. SQL helps manage data in relational database management systems, and is useful in handling structured data that reflects relations between entities and variables. SQL developers can use the language to access many records with a single command and without an index, or a specification of how the records should be reached. SQL developers are responsible for designing databases and ensuring their stability, reliability, and performance. They usually work with a wider team of developers, solving database usage issues, optimizing in-application SQL statements, and establishing best practices.
Freelancers who are skilled in SQL can make a salary of $91,000 per year, or an hourly wage of $50. While the freelance SQL developer hourly rate can vary based on where they live, remote SQL developers can also command different SQL contractor rates based on their years or quality of experience.
