Hi,

I am working as a junior java developer(temp to perm contractor) in Lockheed Martin. I have done my SCJP 1.4 and I have about 6 months experience(3 months J2EE).I have done my BS in Comp Sci.

I want to have an idea of the average salary paid to a junior java developer in my field in the US market. Currently I am being paid $15 an hour which I feel is less and hence my question.

Can't help with your question, but I am interested in this:

What is a "perm(anent) contractor"? Unless I have missed something, the terms are mutually exclusive.

Avg salary (for MS-CS)in east coast should be approx 50k-65k depending on where you live and the univ you graduated from.
$15 per hour sounds more like an interns pay.
Hope that helps,
Amit

Possibly he is referring to "Contract to hire" wherein a firm hires a contractor with a clause that they may hire him/her for a permanent position after a duration provided they are happy with his/her performance.

I apologize, guys, I know that this topic is very old, but maybe my answer will help someone in the future since I spent a lot of time to find the right information.

There are multiple career paths for someone with Java skills; however, the most common (java specific title) is a Java Developer. In the U.S., the average salary for a Java Developer is $94K ($81K base + $11K annual bonus + 0.46% equity + $7K signing bonus) with a base a salary ranging from $64,665 to $97,511.It depends on the position and the company. It also depends on the college from which you have pursued your degree.
If you join as a fresher as a B. Tech graduate from a private B. Tech college, the package ranges in between 2.5LPA to 5LPA.
If you have pursued M. Tech and looking for placements from private colleges, your salary may vary from 4LPA to 6LPA.
For the B. Tech graduates from NITs or IITs, the packages may range from 7LPA to 10LPA.
For M. Tech graduates from those NITs and IITs, it may fall in between 8LPA to 14LPA.
It is very difficult to figure an average salary for an experienced developer as the salaries varies vastly depending on the company, his/her position and performance and most importantly, the initial salary.. I read an interesting article https://diceus.com/java-developer-salary/ on this topic, leave it here, can someone help you in the future.Hope it helps somebody to make right decision.
