I'm only the one developer in a remote startup who do all the development and i also get very less pay for this. the thing is I'm afraid that if I'll tell them to increase my salary they will cut my position.

    I feel the exact same way you do... managing the digital marketing campaigns for a US based tech firm since 2015... the pay sucks! Should I ask for a raise? Didn't get any since I've started.

    In many cases, if you don't ask you don't get. It at least gives the chance to review where you are and where you're going. Hey, it might inspire you to change your current path and look at a new opportunity.

    #1890 you're right i understand totally, you if very hard for remote worker to find a new opportunity as the no of freelancers increasing day by day, still I'm trying my best

    I've read somewhere that it shouldn't be a matter of asking for a raise but more of asking what can I do or what can I improve to deserve a raise. That mentality will actually make your boss more aware of your needs and where you want to be rather than thinking that you just want to make more money.

    If you’re the only developer, you can (and should) ask for a raise. They won’t even consider firing you, you’re too valuable, and difficult to replace. Worst case they’ll say no. So ask!
