Hourly rates vary based on expertise, experience and of course scope of a project. That said, sight unseen, you can expect to pay a junior developer in the $75 to $100 range and a senior AWS developer  in the $100-$400 range, and even more in some cases.

Here’s a breakdown of the range if you are looking for an AWS consultant hourly rate from us, because you need an expert to work with your instance on Amazon Web Services.

We use one of our senior developers to serve our customers when they are dealing with Amazon Web Services and need high-level expert help that they can count on.

AWS consultant hourly rate scale

Here are five scenarios for our AWS consultant hourly rate. They are fairly self explanatory. Read on…

AWS emergency rate – Consulting on demand

This AWS rate gets white glove service. We work around the clock and on weekends to prioritize your job. It also get accelerated ahead of other work we have in progress, so we can resolve your AWS issue. It’s our most expensive AWS hourly rate at $250 per hour.

AWS no commitment rate – Consulting for under 5 hours

If you are new to us as a client and we haven’t worked together before, on a first project your AWS hourly rate will be $195/hour until we hit 5 hours.  This fee is paid in advanced as a deposit. This allows us both to have a minimal commitment to each other until we complete our first project together.

AWS  project rate – Consulting on a scoped project

If you have a project that is scoped by us at $5,000 or more for a variety of services we provide at our digital agency, then the AWS hourly  rate is $175/hour.

AWS priority rate – Established client

If you are a client of ours that has an established relationship with us and you have paid at least 3 monthly invoices or 4 bi-weekly invoices on time, then the AWS hour rate drops to $160 per hour.

AWS loyalty rate – Established client with $25,000 of paid invoices

If you are a client of ours that has an established relationship with us and you have spent $25,000 with us, then you get our best AWS hourly rate of $150/hour.

As you can see, loyalty and a recurring relationship pays off.  We count our loyal clients as not only our partners, but our friends. These are best relationships for both parties because you get a trusted vendor and we get a client we love to work with.
