TikTok is hiring aggressively in the US where competition from big-tech rivals is heating up.

The app’s user base exploded last year, passing one billion monthly active users globally, according to the company. And the growth led competitors like Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat to roll out copycat features.

The company has been staffing up to stay ahead of the competition and meet growing demand from users. It currently has more than 2,000 US job openings listed on its website.

While current and former TikTok staffers have described the workplace culture as high pressurewith roles that can demand working outside of normal business hoursthe company continues to attract applicants in cities across the US. Insider updated its analysis of how much TikTok employees make in the US, based on more than a hundred new work-visa applications.

The public data, released by the US Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification, shows how much TikTok and ByteDance offered to pay employees who it wanted to hire in the US through work visas. The data include base salaries only, not forms of compensation such as stock options or cash bonuses. It shows, for example, that TikTok pays $ 100,000 (around R1.5 million) per year or more for certain content-operations roles, and that ByteDance has offered as much as $ 200,000 (around R2.4 million) per year for software engineers for its AR-effect platform.

Overall, TikTok and ByteDance offered certain staffers between October 2020 and March 2022 base salaries ranging from $ 30 (around R478) an hour to $ 400,000 (around R6.4 million) per year for a variety of different roles, according to the data.
