State of Developer Wellness report: 83% of developers report feeling burnout at least occasionally

Listening to developers feedback in recent years, it became clear that our community members face anxiety, burnout and are trying to find ways to improve their overall health and wellbeing. 

We wanted to learn more about their experiences and with this week being Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK (15th – 21st May) it seems fitting to announce the launch of our State of Developer Wellness report. The report provides insights from our Developer Nation community including workplace experiences, burnout, mental wellbeing, happiness and lifestyles.

We hope that report will raise awareness around the importance of work well-being for developers and creators, and encourage more discussions within developer communities.

Our State of Developer Wellness Survey reached 870 respondents from 91 countries around the world. 

The report covers:

Distribution of Developers based on their Workplace Setup 

Remote work, how it affects their mental wellbeing, do developers feel their employers care about their wellbeing

Developer burnout

How often developers have felt burnout in the last three months, how they decompress and relieve stress, are they successfully managing their workplace stress?

Developer Happiness and Health Lifestyles

We encourage everyone to read the report and share it with your colleagues and peers. Let’s build on a culture of wellness that promotes the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of the developer industry!

Let’s Talk About Developer Wellness

Twice per year we run our global surveys with developers like you including professional developers, hobbyists, students, no-code software creators and as always we invite you to leave feedback, which we love to read!

For a long time we have been focusing on developer research aiming to shape the developer ecosystem, and improve the tools and platforms you are using everyday.  Listening to your feedback, we realised that there are a lot of you out there facing anxiety, feeling burned out and trying to find ways to improve your overall health and wellbeing. 

You asked, we listened! The State of Developer Wellness Survey is our first 5-min survey dedicated to your wellbeing.

For each completed response, we’ll be donating $1 USD with an aim to donate up to $1,000 to the Turkey / Syria Earthquake Appeal. What’s more, we’ll be running a prize draw for swag and sharing our inaugural State of Developer Wellness Report in Q2 with you. 

We are confident that the report will help raise awareness around the importance of work well-being for software developers. It is also expected to contribute to our understanding of the Developer Nation community and the challenges that our members are facing so that we can better support them with our content and community offerings.
