As the tech industry is developing rapidly, Singapore sees a high demand for software developers with skills in big data, analytics, cybersecurity and iOS/Android development. At the same time, Singapore is facing a major shortage of IT professionals. Many companies find themselves opening up more software developer positions and offers a junior software developer in Singapore with an average wage of $2.6k to $3.3K monthly. If you decide to be a self-taught developer or obtain a programming job in a startup, we’d highly recommend following these software developer groups and meetups in Singapore to build a solid network in this industry.
