Over the past eighteen months, Pave has revolutionized compensation benchmarking in the United States. 

In that period, Pave has become the predominant comp benchmarking for pre-IPO venture backed tech companies in the US; we’ve: 

  • Offered free, real-time compensation benchmarks to over 2,200 companies
  • Grown our proprietary data set to 240,000+ employee data points 
  • Partnered with 100+ venture capital firms, including top European investors like Index Ventures, LocalGlobe, Atomico & Octopus Ventures

During this time the labor market changed: expectations have increased significantly in the tech sector, and the labor market has become increasingly more global. According to our most recent data, 35% of our existing customers have team members in Europe.

Offering US compensation benchmarks is only the beginning. 

We’re committed to supporting our growing international customer base to achieve our mission to make compensation transparent, accurate and fair.

And in order to create the data-based clarity we drive to make with our benchmarks, Pave is thrilled to announce that we’ll be expanding our operations in Europe!

Here’s what you can expect to see as part of Pave’s expansion to Europe: 

  • Partnerships with leading European companies like Ledgy, Personio, Capdesk & Charlie (and many more)
  • Integration based functionality that is simple to use
  • Support for European equity vehicles such as EMIs, phantom stock, and more
  • Access to real time US and European data that is free forever

In the modern war for talent, with the aid of tools like Pave, they can differentiate through competitive compensation and secure and retain the best people.
