React Native Salaries and Rates in 2024

Median Salary Expectations:

How statistics are calculated

We count how many offers each candidate received and for what salary. For example, if a React Native with a salary of $4,500 received 10 offers, then we would count him 10 times. If there were no offers, then he would not get into the statistics either.

The graph column is the total number of offers. This is not the number of vacancies, but an indicator of the level of demand. The more offers there are, the more companies try to hire such a specialist. 5k+ includes candidates with salaries >= $5,000 and < $5,500.

Median Salary Expectation – the weighted average of the market offer in the selected specialization, that is, the most frequent job offers for the selected specialization received by candidates. We do not count accepted or rejected offers.

React Native

What is React Native?

React Native (also known as RN) is a JavaScript-based app framework for creating native-rendered mobile apps for iOS and Android. With React Native, you’re basically building only one application for multiple platforms with the same codebase.

Initially developed by Facebook and made open-source in 2015, React Native has since become one of the top mobile development frameworks on the market. Today, apps such as Instagram, Facebook, Skype and more are all powered by React Native development.

In React Native, this is accomplished by React components, which can also directly interact with existing native code – giving React Native much better integration with native APIs, and allowing existing native code teams to work much more quickly. The ability of React components to interact with native code will allow native app functionality to be created by a much wider base of developers.

There are several reasons behind React Native’s global success.


React Native allows companies to write the same code once that will power apps for both iOS and Android. That’s a huge timesaver and use of resources.


and perhaps most importantly, React Native was built on React (a JavaScript library, which itself was already very popular when the mobile framework was released). We discuss the differences between React and React Native later in this section.


the fancy new JavaScript frameworks – the Vues, the Reacts and so forth – empowered frontend developers, who used to code for the web, to swap web technologies for native ones and create apps for mobile platforms that were truly enterprise-ready, capable of being deployed into the wild.

React vs. React Native

Put most simply, React Native is not React ‘2’ – although React Native uses React.

React (also known as ReactJS) is a JavaScript library for building a website’s frontend, and was also created by the Facebook engineering team.

Meanwhile, React Native – based around React – lets developers write iOS and Android apps using a set of UI constructs that can be easily compiled and run.

React and React Native are based on JavaScript and a similar markup language called JSX, and while the JSX syntax is convertible, the syntax used to render elements in the JSX components differs between React and React Native apps, with React using some HTML and CSS and React Native using native mobile user interface elements.

Hard Skills

React Native developers should also have comprehensive hard skills, including:

  • 2 years of experience using React Native
  • extensive knowledge of the full mobile app development lifecycle, from iOS to Android.
  • In-depth knowledge of CSS, JavaScript, Java, HTML front-end programming languages, and functional programming
  • Knowledge of responsive and user interface designs
  • Experience with React Native software, such as ESlint and Jest

Technical Skills

React Native developers should have a broad range of technical skills, including:

  • Experience working with document request models, REST APIs, third-party libraries, and offline storage
  • Experience with TypeScript, unit testing, code debugging, and prop types
  • Strong understanding of React fundamentals such as component lifecycle, Virtual DOM, and component state
