Let's talk about transparent pay.

Knowing what your colleagues make can be a powerful tool in closing the pay gap - that’s why we’ve always believed in transparent pay at Dough.

There are some companies setting the model that we were inspired by (check out Buffer) and some great reads from Time and Forbes. Everyone on our team knows what each other is paid, as well as their level and career path. And now, we’re sharing it with you.
