Mission

Fair hiring - diverse, equitable and transparent

Our Story

Five 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 job portals lacked filters for the specific criteria that were important to her. The few job portals with filters didn't help because most of their job listings didn't contain the important information and were 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 consisted of bulleted lists of responsibilities and requirements without any of the information that she was looking for. Cheryl realized that she would have to invest a significant amount of time researching each of the hundreds of companies by reading their career pages, checking Glassdoor reviews, and consulting friends and acquaintances for insights.

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 it will bring fairness and transparency.

If your company is hiring in Singapore, you can sign up on our Employers website. If you'd like to discuss about making company perks and salary ranges public at your company, please contact us here.
