Pay transparency has given the Compensation Administrator a new data solution. Squirrel adds 80,000 – 100,000 publicly available job postings with employer reported salary ranges every day.

How accurate is the data?

We utilize several methodologies to validate the data and remove jobs that are outliers, inaccurate postings, duplicates and jobs with estimated pay ranges. Since there is no black-box, and the data comes straight from the source, Squirrel data is as accurate as the data advertised by employers and you can review each data point exactly as it was posted.

The Department of Justice published the Antitrust Guidance for Human Resource Professionals, the guide states that a violation may occur if an exchange of non-public material is made between agencies. Squirrel uses only publicly available data. We have hundreds of customers including several fortune 100 companies but we encourage your to discuss the use of Squirrel with your own legal team.

Is Squirrel a Salary Survey?

Squirrel is not a salary survey, nor do we suggest it replace your salary surveys. Salary surveys are carefully developed data sources that are critical for all compensation pracitioners.  However, surveys are limited, by safe harbor to be 90 days old, anonymous, and managed by a third party.  Squirrel provides real-time data

What sources does Squirrel pull data from?

Squirrel pulls data from publicly available sources, including both aggregated job boards and employer job boards.  

Does Squirrel have every job posting?

Squirrel has more than 25-million job postings, and adds between 80,000 and 100,000 every day. That’s more job data salary surveys have, however Squirrel’s data still remains a sample of the market, and not every job posting is going to be captured by Squirrel, for a variety of reasons ranging from quality checks to data collection processes we employ.  

How do we clean the Squirrel data?
  1. Duplicate entries are removed, even if the same job is found on multiple job boards.  
  2. Job postings with extremely wide ranges are excluded.
  3. Only jobs with actual rates of pay are included. Job postings with estimated rates of pay are excluded from the Squirrel database.  
  4. Users have the ability to remove statistical outliers from their datasets as they conduct searches.  
  5. The data must include a number of fields, such as rate of pay, location, job descriptions, and company name to be included in the Squirrel database.


Squirrel is designed to meet everyone’s budget. We’ve got more data than almost every salary survey out there, and for a fraction of the price. Discounts are available for World at Work members.
