Bonsai handles the back office

In UK, an increasing number of Back-end developers have started freelancing. Hence, an increasing number of startups are contracting freelance Back-end developers to join their employees. However starting a freelance-client work is still hard because the price charged by those contractors, for instance in UK, are varying a lot depending on the freelancers' experience.

To increase the visibility on the price points at which freelancers should bill clients, Bonsai built an easy-to-use rate explorer to support both independent workers and companies hiring freelancers in finding the right rates.

The information assembled by Bonsai shows the price discrepencies. For example, 91.74% of Back-end developers incorporated in UK bill ��60 or more hourly rate (with a maximum of 3-year experience). Within that group, Back-end developers who have been paid from ��60 to ��80 are two times as many people as the ones billing between ��40 and ��60 hourly rate. In comparison with the second category of people, they form a group of around 175.00% more people.

In comparison data shows that for Back-end developers with 3 to 5 years experience:

  • - Most ofthem are paid between ��120 and ��140 for every hour of work
  • - Only 1.37% of them are paid ��180 or more for every hour of work
  • - On the opposite, 1.00% of Back-end developers cost less than ��20 for every hour of work
  • - There are four times as many freelancers charging more than ��80 compared to freelancers earning ��80- for every hour of work
  • - 19.18% of freelancers bill from ��100 to ��120 hourly rate while 14.38% of freelancers bill from ��100 to ��120 per hour
  • - 7.53% of Back-end developers charge between ��60 and ��80 per hour, however they are only 10.00% for freelancers with more than 5 years of experience
