We love that the industry is gravitating towards a more equitable and honest display of people’s salary. Pay transparency comes with a certain degree of fairness towards both new employees and those already within an organization. Now, tools like Estim8 can leverage this by finding LinkedIn salary information and packaging it into an easy-to-use chrome extension.

As a potential hire, pay transparency comes with the opportunity to negotiate without trying to play a game of battleship. But, as a sourcer, this means you can now find people within your target salary range a hell of a lot easier. Make the Blue Devil turn green by pulling salary information from LinkedIn!

When the pot boils down, nobody’s trying to move to a new company for less money. With tools like Estim8, you don’t have to waste your time on individuals who are already raking in more cash than what you can offer them.

Has this happened to you lately? You get a nibble, start communication, and then have to go back to the drawing board because the candidate already makes 15k more than the role your offering? Well, if you’re trying to find candidates in the tech industry, we recommend pulling LinkedIn salary information with Estim8.

To clarify, at the moment this tool only sources salaries for software engineering roles in the US. They have plans to extend their abilities to other industries so if you aren’t sourcing these positions keep them in mind.
