Life at Payscale

Our People

In principle and practice, Payscale is powered by people. We acknowledge our differences as well as our combined strengths. We know creating an environment that values diverse perspectives and backgrounds is what enables us to have more innovative ideas and best serve our customers. Meet some of the people that make PayScale what it is.

Our Employee Value Proposition:

Empower. We trust each other. It doesn't matter your level, tenure, or title here - every Purple Squirrel has a voice at PayScale. We strive to ensure that every employee feels empowered to be their best self - both inside and outside the office. We're passionate about investing in the learning, development, and career growth of our people and we're dedicated to offering them opportunities they just don't get anywhere else. Take a seat at the table and join the conversation!

Innovate. We're not afraid to take risks at PayScale - how else would we disrupt the human capital industry?! We explore, we innovate, and sometimes we even fail ("fail fast"!) and get right back to work doing what we love. We feel so strongly about the creativity and ingenuity of our talented team that we save time to host a quarterly Hack Day event where Purple Squirrels from across the company can collaborate on their passion projects. Some even go into full production!

Impact. If you work for PayScale, it's not just a job. We want you to bring your whole self to work - where you're a part of a "work family" that elevates one another, supports each other's growth, and celebrates our successes. Together, we help to ensure that people are paid fairly, and let's be honest - you owe it to yourself to do something that matters.
