About the role

At Pave, we believe the world of compensation is broken, and we’re going to fix it. Today, teams cobble together hundreds of messy spreadsheets and outdated surveys to determine how to compensate their employees. At best, they’re leveraging stale data from an industry that is quickly evolving past it. Add COVID, a new remote and distributed workforce, and you have an even blurrier picture of what “market compensation” is, how it’s evolving, and how to communicate it to employees.

That’s where we come in. Pave allows companies to benchmark compensation to leaders in their industry, analyze internal compensation data and make the right adjustments, then visually communicate compensation to their employees. We’re building the world’s largest real-time compensation data platform on the path to help employers and employees navigate the murky world of compensation with clarity, equity, and accessibility. And you don’t have to just hear it from us — you can hear it from our customers: Allbirds, Hover, Shopify, Discord and more.

In this role you’ll partner directly with product experts to tackle the complex customer challenges within the Compensation Planning problem space, you’ll join a strong team of leaders responsible for more than doubling the Pave engineering team, and you’ll have the opportunity to support amazing engineers as they mature and grow.

You'll have the opportunity to champion initiatives and directly shape culture. Pave sits in the sweet spot of project ownership and support, with talented engineers from the likes of Apple, Facebook, and Uber.

Your Primary Focus: • Recruit, manage, and scale a team of passionate engineers • Lead a team to deliver business impact with consistency and high quality • Partner with cross-functional teams to ship high-value products and infrastructure • Mentor engineers to achieve their career goals • Facilitate alignment of technical decisions with business objectives • Play a key role in shaping the engineering and company culture at Pave

About You: • Ownership: enjoy autonomy and measuring outcomes • Adept recruiter: built out diverse teams through self-hiring and partnering with a recruiting team • Technically strong: maintain strong engineering fundamentals after stepping away from the code • Positive culture: cultivate a balanced team environment that is both supportive and challenging • Tough decisions: weigh stakeholder needs with business and technical tradeoffs • Clean communicator: articulate impact to the team and company with clarity • Leveling up: highly focused on enabling those around you to achieve their goals
