I'm considering a move to Amazon as a Sr TPM. They're asking what my expectations are WRT salary (base), bonus % and equity. TPM is outside my domain of expertise as it pertains to salary etc and I have no idea of what to ask for. They're covering relo to Seattle, of course. My trolldar isn't very good, so a couple serious responses would be nice. 🤘

And while I have your attention, does anyone know what this role is like at AMZN? I have context at other companies, but not there.

Thx, Blinders!

    Amazon caps Seattle bases at 160k

    TC most likely won’t go above 250k tho. If u want 300k+ then try google and fb

      Holy crap. Didn't know that. What kind of bonus potential is there? 20%? 25%?

      TC is mostly cash for the first two years. That’s why you often see huge sign-ons, ie 300k for amazonians .

    Depend on the project. Typically you coordinate with multiple engineering teams to get a project going. Keep track of the status and report to senior management of progress, etc. Sr. Tpm may also involve in longer term planning and help shape the product. Typically a lot of doc writing, cross team communication and coordination.
