Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is this confidential?


Yes, all verbal and written communication is fully confidential.

2. Do candidates really earn $45,000/yr in additional compensation?


The average software engineering candidate we work with receives a compensation increase of over $45,000 per year. This differs by role and experience level with some candidates getting more than $100,000 per year above their initial offer.

3. Will you help me negotiate non-monetary benefits?


Although we primarily focus on monetary benefits such as base salary, equity, and signing bonus, we are happy to help advise on how to negotiate non-monetary benefits (vacation days, green cards, etc.).

4. I don't have an offer yet. Should I still book a call?


Yes! Negotiations start before you have an official offer. During interviews, it is not abnormal for recruiters to ask about your current compensation or your salary expectations, which means the negotiation has already begun. Whether you are at the interview or offer stage, sign up for a call and we will see what support we can provide.

5. I am not located in the US. Can you still help me?


We currently support candidates in the US, Canada, and Europe. Feel free to message us if your region is not listed.
