More on the salary
We decided to share the salary associated with this job posting publicly because pay transparency is at the core of Unito and has a tremendous impact on workplace equity.
Two things to note before we get to the numbers:
- We have fully transparent and data-backed salaries. Which means pay is an open and fair discussion at Unito. Read more on exactly what that means here.
- If your salary expectations are higher than the range indicated below, it’s probably because you’re more senior than what we initially targeted.
