Tech jobs pay over 1/3 less in UK than USA

UK employees working in the technology sector can expect to be paid much less than their American counterparts, according to a new study.

The report was commissioned by Hired. It was based on over 80,000 interview requests and job offers. The report found that on average, the salary given to a software engineer in London was lower than the wage given to a person in the same role in San Francisco.
