Why Figures?

Virgile Raingeard
My first order of business when joining comet, then a post Series-A company of 30-ish employees, as a VP People was to redefine the compensation structure, including its salary grid.However I soon realized that there was no truly reliable & precise source of information regarding compensation practices in the startup world.Without any reliable sources, was my promise to employees that they were “paid fairly compared to the market” even true? Impossible to say.This lack of information also meant was that we were too vulnerable when it came to negotiating with a candidate or an employee, that felt that our offer was not fair compared to the market. That bothered me, especially knowing how much negotiation contributes to widening the gender pay gap.Therefore I created Figures, to ensure start-ups / scale-ups HR Director and CEOs would not face that same issue.Virgile Raingeard — Founder

Under the hood

A startup-compliant job referential
In order to ensure a precise-enough output, we created a unique job referential adapted to the start-up world. No, this is not a monstrous, oversized 500 jobs, 45 seniority levels type of referential like you can find on other studies.It’s meant to get the job done, and it does: as of February 2021, it matches 96,7% of Figures’ participating companies jobs.It also evolves with time: as the market changes, we adapt: 12 jobs were created since its first version, to match compensation data received from companies.

Figures' compensation benchmark saved me a considerable amount of time when preparing for this year's annual compensation review.Last year I had to consolidate multiple sources of data, none truely reliable or well structured. This year however, I could rely on Figures' precise and relevant data, organized by jobs and level of seniority.Moreover, the amount of relevant companies that participated to Figures benchmark gave instant credibility to its market data and therefore our internal salary grid.
