San Francisco Rails Pay Rates?


I’m curious if anyone has a sense of what the typical Rails contract
(W2) rates are for Rails developers in the San Francisco area. Assume
the typical requirements of 2-3 years Rails experience, with 5+ years
general development experience.

From my experience in the Texas market, the rates are $40-55. But I
understand the cost of living in SF to be much higher (some sites
suggest it’s nearly 200% higher than Austin, TX). Are they really
paying SF Rails folks $80-100/hr? If not, “how do you people
live!?” :slight_smile:

Thanks. I realize this is a bit off the norm for this group, but I
know people here have answers to this question.
