Amazon Offer

Qualcomm GuLg31
Aug 20 11 Comments

Hello all, first time posting on Blind, so please be easy on me :)

So I got an offer from Amazon Seattle as software engineer 1 and here is my comp (have 1.5 years of exp at Qualcomm)

Base: 120,000
Sign bonus: 45,000 over 2 years
Stock: 75,000 vested over 4 years

1. Does my comp look good or should I negotiate? If I can negotiate, then how should I approach?

2. I got the offer today 8/20/19 but do you think I can start working next year in January?

Thank you!!!

    This looks good to me but the Stock is a little low for experience profs. Push for $120k to $140k

      120k to 140k is for sde2 lmao

      70k is for college hires. I believe 1.5 years of experience should help him negotiate for more stocks.

    This is as high as an sde1 offer can go.

    Edit: so base wonโ€™t go higher but you should be able to get about 10k-15k more on signing and maybe 80k on stock.

      No its not, this puts his TC at less than 150k. Band for SDE1 goes up to 173k.
