Most tech companies will pay SF Bay Area wages regardless of where you’re located, because they can demand top talent and can afford it.
However, I’ve seen many companies make an excuse for paying lower salaries because they figure even offering remote work arrangements is a huge benefit.
Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of transparency around remote accounting salaries online.
I personally know how frustrating it is to apply to a job that doesn’t provide a salary range up front, only to find out later on in the hiring process that it pays too low.
I hope to bring more transparency and awareness to remote accounting salaries - but it has to be a community effort.
I’m relaunching a salary database
tool I created awhile ago. The way this works is once you submit your salary (anonymously), you get access to all the data. You give, you get.
Once I get enough data, I can provide average ranges by job title, but until now, you can look at the data points.
