YunoJuno is committed to providing a new level of transparency to both freelancers and companies alike. The following data is from our 2019/20 Freelancer Rates Report - a study based on over 25,000 bookings on the YunoJuno platform in 2019.


Data for rates in the data category

The most common rate for all freelancers operating in this discipline was £301-£350 per day in 2019, a similar level to the overall average of £374 per day. The top 10% of day rates in the discipline was at least £550 per day, indicating that those with specific desired skills or expertise can command a significantly higher day rate. The tase in demand for data and insights across multiple industries, as companies look for data-driven gains, further support the acceleration in rates within this field.

I like contracts to be no longer than 3 months, as it allows me to rotate my skill set constantly. All projects have different tech stacks and challenges, so being involved in longer projects helps prevent burn-out and the feeling of being left behind in emerging technologies.
