If you can choose between Amazon SDE II or Amazon SDM, what would you pick?

Optimizing for learning Amazon's culture. I want to apply Amazon's LP to my next startups.

My Background:
Previous Management role: startup founder for 5 years
Previous IC roles: Google

    If you could be a Sergeant or a private, what would you choose?
    SDM is the boss!

    Do you want to write code or spreadsheets and word docs? That’s the question. Be in front of your machine or sit in meetings all day?

      Sure. Rot in front of spreadsheets for an extra 50k a year if that’s your shtick. I couldn’t do it.
