Comparably launches Glassdoor competitor for salary data
With $6.5 million in funding from Crosslink Capital, Upfront Ventures, 500 Startups and others, Comparably is launching a platform for employment and salary information.
The Santa Monica-based startup says its site will make it easier to find whether or not your salary is competitive amongst industry peers with the same level of experience. The self-reported data can also be sorted by gender, making it easier to highlight pay discrepancies.
“We’re going to have the most robust and comprehensive tool to really see how compensation breaks down,” CEO and co-founder Jason Nazar tells TechCrunch. Nazar previously founded Docstoc, which was sold to Intuit. Comparably also wants to “be at the forefront of being able to publish data around the gender pay gap.”
