This Tech Company Pays Its Women More Than Its Men

GoDaddy Women Make More than Men in several departments

GoDaddy isn’t known for offering the best domain and hosting services on the planet, but at least it treats its female works justly.

The company has released its diversity report, which found that women make as much, and in many cases even more than their male counterparts in several areas of the business.

In the past, GoDaddy was attacked by feminists for releasing sexist ads that cast the company in a negative light. The domain giant has spent the last several years trying to shed itself of that image.

Women who work for GoDaddy on average are paid .28 percent more than men.

GoDaddy’s compensation breakdown showed in the “company” and “tech” sectors, women made $1.01 for every $1.00 a man made, while in the “tech” and “management” sectors, women made $.99 for every man’s $1.00.

Female executives, however, still make 4 percent less than their male counterparts.

“Now we have to understand the reasons why we don’t have more women represented in some senior software development roles, and the drivers behind gender pay gap at the management level,” GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving said in a press release Wednesday.

Admittedly, there is still a lot of work to do on the gender pay-gape side of most businesses, but perhaps GoDaddy will do something it’s not used to doing — actually lead a cause that helps women instead of objectifying them.
