I have a question about your compensation calculator however: it seems employees are penalized for living in areas with lower cost-of-living. It looks like you pay someone in San Francisco almost 2x what you pay someone in Vancouver.
Why is this? Is the SF employee worth 2x the Canadian employee?

You are missing on a lot of top talent due to this policy.
