Hi All,

I would like t ask what the usual offer for a web developer in Dubai is. currently, I'm working as a Full Stack developer with a salary of 3500 and I feel its too low of a salary for my job. Is this normal in Dubai?

If you're really a good full stack developer, I don't see any reason why you should ask for anything less than 15K. When many people start accepting ridiculously low packages, the overall market rate for that level of skill goes down.
That said, you need to change your role and do a mix of BD and consulting along with web development to survive in Dubai.. no one needs a pure web developer in Dubai.. that is done by folks sitting in India, Philippines etc.
