Our Transparent Pay Philosophy

Pay equity is a critical element of building and maintaining a diverse and inclusive team that can thrive today and in the future. We’re proud of our fair, consistent salary administration practices that comply with all applicable local, state, and federal laws and requirements — so we share them openly. Dive into the details below, then learn more about working at Quartus. 


Competitive Positioning

We use the 70th percentile of market survey data* to set the midpoint for our salary ranges.

Salary Ranges

We design our salary ranges to balance market competitiveness with internal equity (based on roles with similar scopes of responsibility, knowledge, experience and impact). Pay is based on experience, education, skills, performance and alignment with our values.

Placement in Ranges

Generally, individuals are placed in a salary range based on their experience, skills, knowledge and demonstrated ability to perform their role.


First Tier
New to the role

Developing necessary skills and knowledge to perform the role.

Second Tier
Some experience

Demonstrating skills and knowledge required to meet all expectations.

Third Tier
Deep experience

Performing all aspects of the role at consistently high levels.


Career Planning and Development
As a team of owners, we continually develop our expertise and proactively seek out opportunities for growth and development. To support this, Quartus offers:

Career Development and Progression 
through meaningful, collaborative work and other learning opportunities for personal and professional growth

Annual Education Reimbursement Program 
for seminars/training courses and tuition reimbursement for those interested in pursuing a graduate degree

Performance Reviews and Promotions
We review performance and compensation regularly.

Annual Performance Reviews 
We review performance comprehensively and award annual compensation increases.

Mid-Year Reviews
We review progress on performance and assess compensation. Compensation adjustments may be made as needed.

We award promotions primarily during these regular reviews, with pay adjusted at the time of promotion. Our employees are promoted when they consistently demonstrate skills, knowledge and ownership exceeding what’s expected in their current role — generally involving proactive pursuit of development opportunities like training, mentoring, etc.




* For most positions, “market” is defined as the national labor market among companies with similar revenue ranges and industries (Aerospace and Technology), multiplied by a geographic factor. Quartus reviews market data at least once a year to determine if adjustments to internal ranges need to be made.
