AWS Vancouver vs Amazon Prime Video London

Microsoft fire_
Nov 18 8 Comments

I have option to join the above two teams. I'm more inclined towards the AWS team as the team is just starting in Vancouver (ring 0 service) and its AWS. On the other hand the reason for choosing Prime would be because it is in London!

Prime TC: £49K base + £19K sign on + £2k stocks = 70k
AWS TC: not yet disclosed.

YOE: 2 years
Level: L4(sde 1)

    Remember that taxes are higher in those countries.

    Assuming L4 means SDE2, then Vancouver easily. Your London offer is only 100k cad, and SDE2 Vancouver starts at 160k cad.

      L4 is SDE 1 in Amazon

      SDE1 starts at 130k, so either way, still a big pay difference

      Thanks for the pointer. Do you happen to know the max range for SDE 1 in Canada

    Vancouver TC will probably be a bit higher from what I know, could be wrong though
