Leetcode compensations analysis - India (Jan'19-Aug'21)

I created a repo to scrape and analyse the offers from leetcode compensations page for India.

Notes

  • Reports are generated from 1705 records collected from 2019_01_05 to 2021_08_05.
  • Filtered for India.
  • Salary mentioned in the reports is the total salary.
  • Vertical lines in some of the charts indicate the 75th, 95th and the 99th percentile of the total salaries.
  • Show some ❤️ if you find it useful - https://github.com/urk-stav/leetcode-compensation
  • 4134 records were scraped successfully. 2355 were from India(location was mentioned explicitly). Further, roughly 600 records were dropped either due to incomplete info(like missing company, yoe or salary) or because the script failed to parse the information.
