Applying the guide to salary structure will vary from company to company. At Paystack, the benchmark is a little different because it was suited to how we already pay — reverse engineered.
I’m not sure what the industry standard is, but I’ll be glad to update the sheet if you provide industry standard salaries for different designer positions at tech companies.
An ideal scenario is to have three distinct classifications e.g Junior, Intermediate and Senior. There’ll also be smaller steps in the classifications e.g (Junior Dev Level 1, etc…) so that people can grow within a classification. If I can get industry standard ranges for these three classifications, I can improve the document.
