GoDaddy: Walking the Walk

GoDaddy: Walking the Walk

GoDaddy has revealed our first-ever company-wide salary analysis as part of our push to address gender diversity in the technology industry. The benchmark report delivers on a commitment made at this past summer's White House Demo Day.

Over the summer, GoDaddy conducted an audit of internal salary data, which analyzed like-for-like roles and compared how men and women were placed in the salary band for comparable roles. GoDaddy sets its salary bands by role and level based on industry-standard data, and on average takes a market-leading position, which puts GoDaddy's median salary generally higher than those in the industry. 

For every dollar a man makes at GoDaddy company-wide, a woman is paid roughly one cent more, which also holds true for non-tech women. Women in technical roles at GoDaddy make approximately 99 cents on the dollar, and in the management ranks, women are paid and estimated 96 cents on the dollar.

On the whole, women and men are paid close to parity – here is the specific percentage break down:

  • Total Company: women paid .28% more than men
  • Technical: women paid .11% less than men
  • Non-Technical: women paid .35% more than men
  • Management: women paid 3.58% less than men

Additionally, GoDaddy is releasing its overall diversity statistics, and now reports women represent 20 percent of its technical workforce and 25 percent of the company overall. It has increased its women in management roles to 25 percent. And a number reported over this past summer shows GoDaddy has increased its women interns and new college graduate hires from 14 percent to 39 percent, year-over-year, in both categories.

Disclaimers:

  • I work for GoDaddy. I'm very proud of this fact.
  • I'm male.

Stick It!

Okay, yes, I work at GoDaddy, so I'm supposed to like the commercials. But honestly, I find this one funny. Maybe it's my strange sense of humor. Then again, I also like gefilite fish. Go figure.
