Brazilian start-up Love Mondays has augmented its platform designed to help the process of job seeking with salary rankings.

Love Mondays allows users to check what peers in other firms are earning

The company launched with the aim of providing a tool whereby current or former employees of an organization can rate aspects of the workplace such as career opportunities, working environment and others. The idea is to provide insight about the company to prospective employees before they join.

Last week, Love Mondays added to its existing reviewing capabilities with a list of salaries that displays the various pay grades for different roles across any company. The salary information, as well as the reviews, is provided anonymously.

"Now users can find out whether their salaries are compatible with other colleagues and how much other professionals in similar roles are earning in other organizations," the start-up's co-founder Luciana Caletti told newspaper O Estado de São Paulo.

In addition to Brazilian co-founder Caletti, a former management consultant and marketing expert, Love Mondays has two Irish co-founders: Dave Curran is the company's chief financial officer and Shane O'Grady is the chief technology officer.

Love Mondays was launched just over a year and has received the accolade for best Latin American venture at the Latin America Startup Challenge and the U-Start Conference this year. It was also selected for the first round of government start-up fostering programme, Start-Up Brasil.
