We take a market-based approach to pay. As a remote-first firm, we are location-neutral using national averages to set our ranges.

The base salary/wage range for this position is $130,000 - $140,000 - $145,000.

This salary range represents the low (25th percentile) – median/market/anticipated starting pay (50th percentile) – and high (75th percentile) range for this position and is subject to change. We evaluate these ranges on an annual basis as market conditions change. To determine starting pay, we use a quantitative methodology and carefully consider a variety of compensable factors including an evaluation of the candidate's skills, experience (work and tech stack), market demands, and internal pay equity. We anticipate most new employees will start around the 50th percentile/median/market. This assumes the candidate meets all the requirements for the position and some of the preferred qualifications. Exceptional candidates who meet all the requirements and most of the preferred qualifications may be brought in around the 75th percentile. Conversely, aspiring candidates who may not meet all the requirements and only a few of the preferred qualifications may start around the 25th percentile.

Base salary is just one component of our Total Rewards package. All regular full-time employees are also eligible for a competitive assortment of health and wellness benefits (detailed below), in addition to discretionary performance-based bonuses, as well as business development and revenue generating bonuses, if applicable to the position.
