    You should probably just wait until after the on-site to worry about compensation

      Sounds about right.
      Check paysa.com and levels.fyi with a grain of salt.

    Copy/paste from another post. Yoe doesn’t matter. You have already been pre-leveled as an SDE 1 or 2 — ask your recruiter which one, because you should know. My guess is you’re slotted for 2, which means a successful loop can land you an SDE 2 offer because the panel was calibrated for that. If you succeed at the interview, you will be leveled as SDE 2 if you’re measured as being in the top 50% of SDE 2s at Amazon (the “bar raiser” in your loop is trained for that). If you performed well but the BR ruled you appropriate for SDE 1, then your offer will be SDE 1. The pay bands differ between 1 and 2. But assume you get offered 2 but not identified as a super star (you won’t be), then a median Seattle SDE 2 offer will put you around 200K total comp. Base would be around 135K, and RSUs around 150K (earned over 4 years). Plus a sign on cash bonus around 35K for each of the first 2 years (to fill in for shitty RSU vesting schedule, Amazon’s biggest joke).

    When did you do your online assessment, and how long after did they tell you that you were coming onsite?
