Employees often think they are not being paid well. Employers on the other hand do feel their employees aren’t worth any more. The solution has been performance-based remuneration with a minimum acceptable wage at entry level and a satisfactory maximum or possibly no maximum.

But how do you rate the performance of a position such as that of a developer? What metric or KPI can be tied to ‘writing code’ and used to determined benefits?
