I agree with you.

True, there are lots of programmers right now, but there are very few programmers with the right skillsets. At least for the past 2 years, I've been in the forefront of recruiting developers for the company I work for and it is sad to admit that 90% of all programmers in Nigeria are shitty. They all shout "I am a developer" but don't have a clue what it takes to be one.

Regardless of the influx of programmer supply from other parts of the world, I've worked with several guys who are smart and very badass in programming and earn more than 12M NGN gross pray and are here in Nigeria.

My point is, companies will pay you if you are good enough, can sell yourself well, be very smart and don't give a poo about burning rickety bridges.


90% is very bad, why do you say so


BTW what kind of skill set does the 10% possess


Looking forward to your response

The game changer is that they are exceptionally dexterous and adroit at changing baby diapers and wiping poop. wink

I see people not stating what they earn. So I work for a startup in Lagos as a mobile (mostly Android using react native) developer. Salary is 386k/m (with lots of other bonuses).

Every new developer in the company earns an average of 180k/m (lowest level). Salary depends on skillset and how much you can sell yourself. Interview is handled by the CTO himself, so he decides how much you earn on the spot, no HR. Work is flexible and most times I work from home. This also gives me more time for side hustles.

I also do remote gigs with an average of $3000/m.

Once you have the right skillset and work smart, you attract the right offers

So, in other words, you just build mobile apps for the company?

That average of 120 or 130k is roughly $500 usd. Thats very poor for a 30 days full time job. Any good developer can earn that weekly working with foreign firms online.

I will find time to write more on this soonest.
can you show how a nigerian can get these jobs working online? It would b really helpful

What's your skill set? What language(s) are you fluent in?
