About Us

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

Notion is an in person company, and currently requires its employees to come to the office for two Anchor Days (Mondays & Thursdays) and requests that employees spend the majority of their week in the office (including a third day).

About The Role

The Total Rewards Team at Notion is dedicated to building a generational company that empowers people to do their best and most meaningful work. We're seeking a compensation partner to help establish and maintain comprehensive compensation programs that support this goal.

  • Partner closely with the People ops team to enhance and automate compensation practices and support the transition to a new HRIS tool (likely Workday)
