About the Role

We are seeking a seasoned Total Rewards Manager to join our dynamic team. The Total Rewards Manager will play a pivotal role in developing, implementing, and managing our compensation and benefits programs. This role will be responsible for designing and executing strategies to attract, retain, and motivate employees while ensuring alignment with our organizational objectives.  

We offer a dynamic hybrid work environment, combining the flexibility of remote work with the collaborative energy of in-person interaction. While we value flexibility, this role requires in-office presence three days a week to foster teamwork, innovation, and connection. Our commitment to both remote and in-person work ensures a balance between autonomy and collaboration, allowing our team members to thrive in a supportive and engaging environment.

This is an individual contributor (non people-management) role; reporting to the Director of People Systems & Operations. The role is based in Redwood City, CA; with a hybrid work schedule of 3 days per week in office. 

You will…

  • Design, implement and administer competitive compensation and benefits programs, including base pay, incentives, equity plans, and health and welfare benefits.
  • Lead the development and management of an effective employee recognition program to foster a culture of appreciation and engagement.
  • Conduct regular market analysis and benchmarking to ensure Carbon’s compensation and benefits packages remain competitive and in line with industry standards.
  • Partner with People Business Partners, finance, and other stakeholders to provide guidance and recommendations on compensation-related matters, including job evaluations, salary structures, and pay equity.
  • Lead annual salary review processes, merit increase cycles, and bonus programs, ensuring fairness and consistency across the organization.
  • Manage relationships with external vendors, brokers, and consultants to optimize the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of our benefits programs.
  • Stay abreast of legislative and regulatory changes related to compensation and benefits, and ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
  • Analyze employee data and metrics to assess the effectiveness of our total rewards programs and identify opportunities for continuous improvement.
  • Provide guidance and support to managers and employees on compensation-related inquiries and issues.
  • Develop and deliver engaging and informative training sessions to educate employees and managers on our total rewards programs.

You have…

  • Bachelor's degree in Human Resources, Business Administration, or related field.
  • Minimum of 8 years of progressive experience in compensation, benefits, or total rewards management, preferably in a fast-paced, start-up environment.
  • In-depth knowledge of compensation and benefits principles, practices, and trends, including familiarity with job evaluation methodologies, salary structures, incentive plans, and benefits design.
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to interpret data, draw insights, and make data-driven recommendations.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams and influence stakeholders at all levels of the organization.
  • Detail-oriented with a high degree of accuracy and integrity.
  • Proven project management skills, with the ability to prioritize and manage multiple tasks simultaneously.
  • Certified Compensation Professional (CCP) or Certified Benefits Professional (CBP) designation preferred.
  • Proficiency in HRIS and compensation software/tools.

You do not need to match every listed expectation to apply for this position. Here at Carbon, we know that diverse perspectives foster the innovation we need to be successful, and we are committed to building a team that encompasses a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and skills.

At Carbon, we look at the person holistically and carefully consider a wide range of factors when determining compensation. The salary pay range for this position is $132,800.00 - $199,200.00.

As set forth in Carbon, Inc.’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection.

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
