How much do Go developers earn in Russia? 
29 May 2017   1654

Go is an open source project developed by a team at Google and many contributors from the open source community.

Go is a fairly young language, so there aren't many Go-experts, much like vacancies. In May 2017, Russian companies posted 163 vacancies. This is several times less than for such common languages like PHP or JavaScript.

There aren't many vacancies for Go developers but they are paid good. Average wage level is 100 000 rubles atleast, which is evident against the salary of developers, who use other technologies.

Even the average salary of developers with an experience of 1 to 3 years does not fall below this mark. So it's very promising to master Go.

The new method of processing the code Change Signature will allow a single action to change the signature of functions and methods throughout the workspace.
