Hey yall,

Few months ago, I was hired as a NAV Developer in a really small company. I was just curious to know what's the pay scope as a NAV developer. How much does a NAV developer make an hour or yearly (2000 hours) when they are starting out and how much do they make after few years of experience?

Thanks

I started Gross at 1800 LCY/month (around the time I joined MiBuSo) and currently sit on 2300 with a job hop soon to 2600

Depends on the country and location.
USA for experienced developers runs from 80K to 120K a year including bonuses.
A good developer needs a deep knowledge of NAV, ERP, and business (and people).
There are probably some outliers making less and more.
A full-time freelancer can make a lot more (or a lot less).

If you are new to NAV then take the opportunity to learn all you can and become an expert - which takes time. Regard this as a paid learning opportunity.

A NAV developer will make enough money so he/she does not ever have to starve. But will not make enough to become rich.

NAV is not the profession you want if you want to become rich.

It takes a LOT of experience and expertise to get that kind of a salary. If you're just starting out you should expect a salary that represents your level of seniority and education level. Most of the time NAV developers are recruited with at least a bachelor degree, so an entry level salary would be what you would expect at that level.

Unless you freelance. One of the large recruiting agencies made a survey recently. Austria is not really known for high salary - quite an egalitarian culture - yet the average freelancing we was like €600 a day i.e. $730 - that sounds like a lot. Of course it really depends how many days per month one can actually invoice. I assume rarely more than 15 and I figure often a freelancer must be happy with only 10.
