Recruiting Hack That Gives You Free Salary Analytics for Technical Openings

recruiting hacks
Here’s a recruiting hack that provides valuable salary data on technical job openings nationally. And, we show you how to get one free salary market data report on any job. First, we want to give a shout out to Payscale, a provider of real-time and market-enabled compensation models for employers and employees, for publishing this data. And, they also turned us on to Silk, a service that allows you to publish data with visual outcomes (there’s another recruiting hack we are working on with Silk for later this summer).  The site, Tech Salaries, aggregates data from Payscale surveys on the top seven job descriptions associated with the most current software coding languages. The languages included iOS, Android, Node.js, Java, Python, .Net and JavaScript.

HERE HOW IT WORKS
First, go to to https://tech-salaries.silk.co/. Start exploring.

COMPARISON OF SOFTWARE ENGINEER SALARIES ACROSS MAJOR US CITIES
In addition to exploring trends in salaries for different programming languages, we were interested in data comparing software engineer salaries across major cities in the US. It’s no surprise that the Bay Area ranked #1 in salaries. The nearest competitor to Bay Area is Seattle which still trails the Bay by nearly 15% comparatively.

 

WANT SALARY DATA ON OTHER TYPES OF JOBS?
After playing with the data pertaining to technical openings, we went to explore the Payscale site and noticed that you can run a detailed market data report on any job. The first report is free. Nice! We just opened a Marketing Manager job at Newton to assist with the marketing of our applicant tracking system. We followed the Payscale data collection process and here is a screenshot of the results based on our location, years of experience, size of our organization and some specific skills that we are looking for. Good stuff. Try a free report.
