Question: What is the average hourly rate for a Ruby on Rails developer on Toptal if he/she is from countries like Brazil, Argentina, etc (not Europe/the USA)?

If you take a look at US freelancers hourly rates and compare them to those from other countries you’ll find… it’s a global market ๐Ÿ˜‰

In short – there’s not enough freelancers (IT people in general) in the US and Europe so clients and agencies are reaching out for international talent. Once you as a freelancer (or an agency / software house) go down that path you get some references and your hourly rate goes up to US/Western European level.

And why not – talent is a talent. No matter where you live.

Of course there are always new, hungry players with lower rates but they learn very quickly that Talent has its price. And if they don’t there’s something wrong…
