engineers are bringing in the big bucks.
In a recent analysis of visas given to H-1B workers in Q2 2022 from Insider, Twitter salaries listed ranged from $122,000 to $332,000, spanning roles from IT engineers to senior software engineers.
The U.S. Office of Foreign Labor Certification publishes data on the positions and salaries of foreign workers. H1-B Visas specifically require companies to pay employees the same as U.S.-based ones.
In Q1, Twitter hired about 100 people through the program. But in Q2, that number went up to 400 workers.
Insider noted that a tumultuous back-and-forth over Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter has increased turnover at the company. (Musk has until October 28 to bring his financial backers back on board and close the $44 billion deal with the company.)
