After a few months of hard work we have managed to publish our startup salary guide. The TLDR; is to provide Founders, Investors, Employees and Job Seekers with the data they need to understand what fair compensation means.

A huge thank you to the team at StartupAus and the 350+ individuals that responded to our online salary survey. We also could not have done this without the support of Airtree Ventures, Blackbird Ventures, Blacksheep Capital, Carthona Capital, Full Circle, Rampersand, Square Peg Capital and lastly Reinventure who were particularly instrumental in helping to get this off the ground.

The challenges of hiring top talent are well documented for cash strapped businesses. But does it mean ramen noodles every night if you are working for a Startup? By publishing salaries based on real data, gathered from 350 online respondents and forty-seven venture backed businesses we hope to shed some light on things.

You can find a copy of the guide here for download and use.

    Hi Anthony,
    Great guide, thanks for sharing as this is extremely valuable for the entire AUS startup ecosystem. Couple of q’s I had:
    1) Do you have any data on contracting staff for similar roles, their rates & tenure duration?
    2) Is this guide the first of its kind of aus startups?
