Do you want to empower organizations to fairly and equitably hire, promote, retain and

  • Partner with the customer success team to consult customers on advanced analytical and statistical methods related to their pay equity analyses and effective usage of the Syndio platform.
  • Work closely with the marketing, sales, and customer success teams to deliver high-quality research and advice on pay equity topics through white papers, webinars, conference events, and custom research reports.

  • Within 3 months, you’ll be fully ramped and working with customers to provide best practice advice and support custom analytics.
  • Within 6 months, you’ll be developing and delivering advanced custom analytics and advice to customers, while also contributing meaningfully to Syndio subject matter trainings and thought leadership initiatives.

About you

  • You are passionate about our mission to close pay gaps and create fairness in the workplace. 
  • You have experience or knowledge in pay equity, compensation, HR consulting, or compliance-related analytics (We do not provide legal advice, but the individual in this role is expected to provide expert-level compliance advice.).
  • You have a proven track record of developing and applying statistical knowledge to data driven questions.
  • You are comfortable generating and interpreting statistical models, analyses, graphs and data.
  • You have demonstrated experience with a variety of analytical tools (e.g. R, Python, Excel, SQL, etc.)
