Hello,

I'm a UX Designer (with 3yrs of experience) and i'm slowly learning more about the freelance market here in Sweden. The start-up I'm interested in working for, asked me about my hourly rate and I was wondering about the median hourly rates for designers in Sweden. So far, I found this useful article: https://medium.com/@jenswedin/the-state-of-...en-d1b98ceb147b

It looks like the median hourly rate is +/- 1000SEK/hr. Anyone working as a freelancer in the front-end/IT/UX world willing to share their experience? Any input is much appreciated!

Sorry, no experience of this industry but be wary of people quoting income amounts without explaining exactly what they are referring to. An hourly rate could be a freelancer invoicing through their own company (with or without VAT included)(i.e. the freelancer pays their own employer contribution fees) or they could be employed/consulting via an agency (which acts as an employer) on an hourly rate, in which case the employer/agency also pays employer contributions and deducts tax.

If I were you, I would ask about the rate they are willing to pay you. And I would discuss the details of the project. After all, how can you name the desired rate if you do not know about the volume of work.

This question is usually asked when they want to reduce wages as much as possible.
