      There is some sign on bonus but wanted to know how the TC looks like because sign on would be just one time.

      Isn’t it spilt between the first two years and then most of the RSU’s kick in the last two years? So basically 4 year vesting plan?

      Yes. You are right, the sign will be for 2 years. First year one time and second here monthly.

      The vesting at amazon is back loaded. You can’t just say base + 1/4 of RSUs. Sign-on is important here to estimate your TCT.

    Seems like a $255k TC, good enough for seattle

      Year 3 and 4 are base + 40% of RSUs. Year 1-2 are padded with the sign-on.
