The London fintech paying more in Singapore than the UK
However, this is what happens at $7.8bn publicly traded payments fintech Wise. It gives engineering candidates a look at expected salary for each seniority across its major office locations, which include a UK, Singapore and US office. US staff earn the most by a large margin but, at both junior and senior levels, staff in Singapore can expect to make more than those in London.
It's only a slight increase, but it's a notable sign that the highest paid engineer in Singapore should be earning a higher salary than someone in Wise's London headquarters. This is only engineering, of course, but still.
The higher paid Singapore tech jobs at Wise are harder to come by. While the London office has 22 total openings, of which 7 in engineering, the Singapore office has eight total and... none in tech. Wise is looking for a product manager in Singapore. The maximum salary range for a product lead at Wise in Singapore is $312.6k while, for UK staff, it's $279.4k.
