pay transparency

inspired by this page by xe, i decided to document the salaries and bonuses that i’ve had in all my roles to a painfully excessive display of transparency.

if you are in a similar position as me back in 2020-2021 with a lot of hobby experience but zero professional experience, yolo that appliacation. worst they can do is bin your application!
