How do programmers in Peru rank?

Three years ago, Peru wasn’t on the map when it came to software development. HackerRank didn’t even include the country in its 50 country country leaderboard. 

This is starting to change:

Peru’s increasing attractiveness as a source of programming talent could be due to two factors: (i) a growing talent pool and (ii) the comparatively low cost of hiring talent. A recent StackOverflow report indicates that 33% of programmers in Peru are looking for jobs. This is good news for employers since median salaries for developers in Peru are around $13,000 annually compared to $17,000 in Mexico.
