About Compa

Compa is a new way to create offers with software. Our data science engine scales compensation analysis so that every decision is data-driven. Data-driven decisions help us make better human decisions. Our tools are designed to make compensation easy to understand and communicate so offer decisions are consistently fast and accountable.

Creating offers should be simple, unbiased, and designed to win. Compa makes this possible, and opens up incredible new ways to understand and manage compensation outcomes at scale.

About the role

Compa is looking for both junior and mid-level engineers to join our team. We're looking for engineers that want to code, grow, and have an impact on the world:

  • Own the development of features end-to-end.

  • We're applying technology to build scalable solutions to one of society's toughest challenges - making compensation more transparent, fair, and equitable.
  • Pay is deeply personal and affects everyone who works for a living. At Compa you'll be part of a small team on the frontier of making compensation better for everyone.
