A web application for sharing local tech industry compensation. It aims to freely provide compensation data to students, employees, and employers in the local tech industry so they can make informed career and hiring decisions.
Key Project Features
- Capture data beyond only salary: employee benefits, specific tools used in a job, years with current employer, total number of employers during career, etc...
- Anonymous and verified submissions: using any email, or using a "verified" email based on whitelisted domains. Specific emails addresses will never be shared.
- Segmented data by year - allow multiple submissions from the same sources every year in order to keep the data up to date.
- (TODO) A side tool for valuing non-salary benefits using NPV calculations.
Option 1: Running With Docker
You can use Docker and docker-compose to create a container which will grab all of the dependencies for you.
First, create a
.env file in your root directory. Set where the DB container will store its data using the
docker-compose build docker-compose up
You'll need to run the database migrations and seed the database if you haven't:
docker exec -it open_tech_pay_app /bin/bash flask db init flask db upgrade python utils/seeding/seed_core.py
Option 2: Using pipenv for local development without Docker
They're in the
/tests folder. Create a config file in the
tests directory. You should set up a seperate DB just for tests.
python -m unittest discover
