PayScale Helix



Building on a foundation of innovation that we developed 10 + years ago, PayScale introduces Helix, a blend of human expertise, advanced data modeling, machine learning, and ever improving matching and prediction algorithms to power faster, more accurate decisions on pay.

Helix is PayScale’s proprietary algorithm and thousands of sophisticated models that enable us to cover and report data on more jobs, surface more accurate matches and ingest more data than ever before.

Helix applies modern data science to the increasingly large data sets being used in compensation benchmarking, interpreting job skills and requirements, and predicting pay positions across geographies and other segments.

The power of Helix is applied to all of PayScale’s products and datasets. We are able to produce our data with depth and certainty; this is because of Helix.
