Senior Software Engineer, Business Products
PayScale is the world leader in modern compensation software. We believe data-informed discussions about compensation benefit both employers and employees and that greater pay transparency promotes equity, engagement and employee retention. We are bringing the dark art of compensation into the light by helping individuals understand the right pay for their position and more than 7,000 businesses retain and manage their largest investment: their people.
We’re transforming the compensation industry and are looking to bring on talented professionals like you with diverse perspectives. At PayScale, we acknowledge and value our differences as well as our combined strengths. We want all employees, regardless of their background, to feel respected personally and professionally. We foster a working environment that generates new ideas, promotes ownership and experimentation and encourages highly motivated individuals to be truly creative. Are you bright, tenacious, and inventive? If so, PayScale may be the perfect place for you to grow your career!
The Business Products team is enhancing and expanding a suite of applications and services used to power modern pay decisions for over 18 million employees. This includes our Gender Wage Gap Analysis Tool and our Team products that help empower managers. Craft features from new and existing web services as you help expand our offerings of analytics and third-party integrations. Teams are small and use Agile methodologies to release our features rapidly and incorporate user feedback. Come to a place where your ideas are valued, your brain is challenged, your voice is heard and your work has an immediate impact.
