About

WageSpot -- The world’s salaries at your fingertips

What is it?

WageSpot is the world's first user-driven and location-based salary app. Today's salary and earnings resources are all built to favor the employer. The Glassdoors and Payscales of the world toe the company line when it comes to reporting salary information.  They have averages and estimates of earnings but don't provide real unfiltered data directly from the user. WageSpot is going to disrupt this paradigm by giving an opportunity to every user to share their salary information directly with others. 

Share and compare your salary to real people in real time based on real locations, industries, companies, job satisfaction and much more! Arm yourself with information that will help you learn your true worth in the marketplace. Knowledge is power as they say and the knowledge WageSpot gives you will enable you to make better decisions. Decisions like whether to ask for a raise, or how much to ask for when negotiating the salary for a new job. We're sure you have already thought of a few more.

Why we built it

Salary is the most important aspect of people's financial lives.  At WageSpot we believe salary should be based on your skills, talent and experience - your true worth, not on your past salary history or a title. WageSpot gives an opportunity to every individual user to share their salary information and thus help bring transparency to the topic of compensation. In doing so, we hope to force the employers to focus on fairness that is sorely lacking in the workplace today.

Why we need your help

Our kickstarter campaign is raising funds to pay for Google’s annual licensing fees for their Mapping API. We want to make -- and keep -- WageSpot an entirely free service for all to use, and as we grow this will be the one major expense we need help with to make that possible. Help us to make WageSpot the world’s most powerful salary research, discussion and sharing community and change the way we think about -- and negotiate -- what we earn!

We are on a mission to empower employees by breaking down the salary sharing taboo. We hope you will join us.

Risks and challenges

The good news is that we have overcome multiple obstacles and challenges already and have launched WageSpot on the App Store And Google Play this month (October 6th, 2015). We have put in a lot of hard work to get WageSpot to this point. Now that the app is launched we are reaching out to friends and family and early adopters to get to the next level and fulfill our vision for WageSpot.
