About the role

Why join Pave? At Pave, our vision is simple - Make Compensation Fair.

How are we going to get there? By building the most intelligent compensation platform, powered by the largest real-time compensation dataset on earth.

We partner with our customers to help them build and retain world-class teams through planning, communicating and benchmarking their team’s compensation in real time. And you don’t have to just hear it from us — you can hear it from our customers: Hover, Sweetgreen, Airtable and more.

We’re growing fast, building an incredible team and product, and having plenty of fun as we do it in our San Francisco and New York City offices.

If stretching the rubber band, building with intellectual honesty and focusing on impact sounds exciting - we highly encourage you to reach out. We’d love to partner on our journey to change the world of compensation!

If this blend of drive, dedication, fun, and challenge piques your interest, we'd love for you to reach out!

About you

  • Pragmatic and action-oriented: Take ownership of your work, advocate for important matters, and contribute to advancing the team and the product. You are invested in the outcomes and take responsibility for the impact.
  • Collaborative and constructive: Have a proven track record as a strong cross-functional partner. Contribute to a healthy team dynamic and uplift those around you. Value professional development, give and receive feedback well, and consistently strive to improve.
  • Clear, effective communicator: Excel in storytelling and providing rationale, promoting understanding and fostering alignment through your words and designs.

About Pave

  • Do you know how your compensation is decided?
  • How do your employers know the market rate?
  • How is your financial success tied to the company's financial success?

** Who are we: **

Pave is a compensation hub that provides real-time benchmarking data and tools to help companies guide their compensation plans. Companies integrate their HR systems and unlock Pave’s real-time data and suite of intelligent software tools. We communicate the company's compensation policy to their employees, and explain how they grow as the company grows.

** What we do: **

At Pave, you will reinvent the world of compensation and help build a more transparent future. Pave allows companies to benchmark compensation to leaders in their industry, analyze internal compensation data. We launched in March of 2020, and in 2023 now proudly serve over 5,700 customers (and growing!). This makes Pave the largest compensation provider in the world for private technology companies.
