YOE : 6.5 years.
SDE-3 at Flipkart (5 years @FK)

Offered TC
LinkedIn : 65L (Including 3L sign-on/joining bonus, have not started negotiation) : (Foundation Team)
Uber : 76L (20L in stocks) (Riders/ Driver Solution Team)
Google: ~66.5L (Low base: 27) (Google Assistant or Doc team)

PS: Don't have any plans to move out of Bangalore.
Priority: Work quality + people around me. I do care about WLB but I can put some extra hours for next couple of years (before kid) as long as the financial upside justifies that.


Edit: If people working in any of the above teams can share some insight, I will be thankful.

    That's almost $100k a year, in India.

    That's more than salaries in Europe, UK, Australia.

    The answer to all TC questions these days is Uber if you have Uber and Google offering similar TC.
    Uber is about to IPO and Google stock has been stable/in decline over past few months. I don't see it appreciate in value in near future. Uber will maximize your TC over next 2 to 3 years. After that you can always jump to Google as an L5.

    Note: I don't live in India and don't know about the currency. I am guessing this is good money because Google, LinkedIn, and Uber pay top dollar in all geographies.

      Flipkart’s SDE4 beats this I guess. Since OP is SDE3 and has 50+ base then SDE4 should have significantly higher base than this. So a TC of SDE4 Flipkart should be ~70L Base + ~20L Stock

    India US conversion factor at Google I generally hear is around 3x. Ie your offer is worth 280k in USD. That sounds about right for l4 CME or EE. What's the level at Google India?

    Congrats on getting such nice offers ! Also, thanks for posting the offer details. Can you tell the base and stock breakup of Linkedin ?
    As per feedback w.r.t. teams, is foundations team the tools team ? In that case , it mayn’t be the best possible team !
