  • In partnership with Compensation Analyst, benchmark roles externally to inform salary range recommendations across the business.
  • Collaborate with project teams and leadership to develop, educate, and deploy new compensation initiatives across the organization.
  • Assist with total rewards programs and practices, such as equity, sales plans, and other team programs as needed.
