Since the beginning, WP Rocket bet on a transparency policy, and we have been sharing a lot about how our business works.
We have had great feedback regarding our transparency and this has pushed us to go further.
We published monthly Insights with details about our revenue, new customers, and support. It’s time now to share our Salary Grid.
What is a Salary Grid?
When we were doing our first recruitment, there were a few things that we wanted to avoid.
Not being transparent within the team with everyone’s salary.
All of the founding partners at WP Rocket have had bad experiences in the past with companies where there was no transparency regarding staff salaries.
It created a work environment where rumors circulated and there was a lack of understanding which was terrible for work conditions.
Providing a better salary to someone just because his/her negotiation skills are better than another employee’s is not a good way to do things.
We believe that a salary has to be adjusted based on different criteria:
- Where you live in the world
- If you have kids
- Your experience
After talking and checking what other companies do (special thanks to MailPoet and Buffer), we’ve figured out that a salary grid with a base salary and some additional factors is the best way to approach this. This Salary Grid has been available to the whole team since the beginning and we decided to share it publicly.
Current Salaries at WP Rocket
You can have a look at all our salaries here on the Google spreadsheet.
This grid is our first release and we will iterate as necessary, as we grow. We would love to have your feedback and ideas about it.
