Amazon DE II compensation and levels
I am currently waiting for my onsite interview wuth Amazon, for the Data Engineer II position. The recruiter wants to know the expected compensation. I see a lot compensation reports for SDE but not DE positions.
Are the levels like L4, L5 positions applied for DE's too?
I have 3.5 years of experience in the DE domain and previously 2 years as a Software Developer.
I currently have another offer for 135k (contingent on references ) but it is not from any of the FAANG/DU companies so I am not sure if I could use this as a negotiating factor
Would anyone kindly let me know what level I would fall in and what could be a decent amount that I could ask for without the recruiter saying F*** off.
And how does amazon determine my level? Is it just off of your leadership principle interviews?
Also does my other offer hold any value while negotiating?
Just wanted to open up a discussion.
Let me know your thoughts
