Fair hiring - diverse, equitable and transparent
JobWiz was started by Cheryl and Tim, a married couple of software engineers, who want to help people find jobs with the perks they care about.
Four years ago, Cheryl was looking for a software engineer job in Singapore. She knew what she wanted. She wanted to work for a small tech startup making a positive impact, not too far from where she lives. She cared about flexible hours, having the option to work from home, getting enough days off to travel regularly, and not taking a pay cut. She thought that finding which companies offer what she was looking for would be easy.
She was wrong.
Most of the job portals have no way of filtering on any of the things she cares about and the job portals that have a few filters are not useful because most of their job listings don't contain the important information and are being filtered out.
Her next plan was to read each of the hundreds of relevant job descriptions but she quickly discovered that the job descriptions were not helpful. They were bulleted lists of responsibilities and requirements without any of the information that she was looking for. She understood that for each of these hundreds of companies, she would have to spend lots of time reading the career pages, Glassdoor reviews and asking friends and friends of friends about their experience.
Cheryl and Tim discussed about the problem. It was clear that it would take hundreds of hours to gather this data. They thought that "There must be others like us" and decided that instead of keeping this data private in a spreadsheet, they would put it on a public website. This is how JobWiz was born.
We believe that company perks and salary ranges should be public. We believe that finding companies that offer the perks you care about shouldn't be that hard. We believe that making salary bands public will reduce the gender pay gap. We believe that making perks public will help companies find the talents they're looking for. We believe it will bring fairness and transparency.
