- Roger Lee and Teddy Sherrill have launched a new website, Comprehensive.io, that tracks and publishes tech salary ranges daily to advance pay transparency and eliminate pay inequity. Co-founders Lee will serve as CEO and Sherrill as CTO.
- “For companies: you can look up the salary ranges that similar companies are posting for similar roles,” a Friday LinkedIn post from Comprehensive.io said “If you're not complying with the pay transparency law yet, we hope this data can help you figure out what salary range to use.”
- In order to provide accurate information to users, Comprehensive.io aggregates job posts from over 700 tech companies, totaling more than 53,000 job postings, and extracts the salary ranges daily, according to the website.
Starting Jan. 1, California required employers to include salary ranges on job postings. A similar law went into effect in New York City last year. As transparency laws become more common, business leaders and employees alike can use the increased visibility to their advantage.
In addition to tracking salary ranges, Comprehensive.io provides users with pay transparency compliance rates for California and New York City.
Compliance rates are calculated by dividing the number of companies that include salary ranges in job posts by the total number of companies required to be compliant per relevant location, according to Comprehensive.io.
The California compliance rate sits below half at nearly 42%, while New York City’s is nearly two-thirds, according to Comprehensive.io.
A company is considered compliant if the majority of jobs posted on its career page in the relevant location contain a salary range.
The website also highlights how employers seem to test the limits of the transparency laws’ “in good faith” requirement.
Tesla sits atop the list of companies with the highest salary range for senior software engineers, with a salary range of $83,000 to $418,000, according to the website. Snowflake is second with a salary range of $214,000 to $328,000 for senior software engineers, according to Comprehensive.io.
Before working on Comprehensive.io, Sherrill was CTO at Restaurant Brands International, where he created a TypeScript codebase for restaurant apps including Burger King, Popeyes and Tim Hortons, according to his LinkedIn. Co-founder Roger Lee created Layoffs.fyi during COVID-19 to track tech layoffs and co-founded Human Interest, a digital 401(k) provider for businesses, in 2015, according to his LinkedIn.
