Backend Developer

About Us

Compensation is more than a paycheck, and traditional approaches don’t adequately reflect it or the way people work today.

We’re on a mission to change that. We see compensation as everything a company gives its people in return for the work they do. It should be easier to understand, offer, manage and spend.

Long-term, we’re working towards becoming the place where compensation happens and is managed by those who award and receive it. We’re on our way to coining the term “Compensation-as-a-service”.

We’re proud to be backed by leading European VC funds, having raised over €5 million in our pre-seed round led by Breega.
