Everyone knows that there’s lots of money to be made in tech right now.

A report from job site Paysa makes that abundantly clear. The study examined compensation across 26 major tech companies, including power players like Google, Facebook, and Uber.

Paysa provided data about the average annual base salaries employees earn at each profiled company, as well as annual and sign-on bonuses. Because the report looked into employees who no longer work at each company, the bonus rates may have since changed.

The result? A pretty interesting look at how much you might hope to earn at some of the biggest names in tech.
