      Was a firmware job with the infotainment team. Equity meaningless; it’s an illiquid startup. Salary I talked them up to 215k (I think? It was a while ago), but they seemed pretty shocked about it.

      I am having a blast here , love the startup environment with mix of automotive and consumer industry veterans ~ don’t think they low ball regarding comp. haven’t seen that happen. If the expectations are high from candidates they will not go overboard in desperation. This maintains a good balance within the company

      To be fair they weren’t allowed to ask me (yay new laws) but clearly not a good offer. I just said no.

    • That's why you should always ask for the range up front. Otherwise you will end up wasting your day

      Fair enough. I don’t normally expect to be lowballed like that. In this case I think they just have no idea.

    I’ve been here a month; culture is great. They easily beat out an amazon base pay+bonus in my case; and they were not “shocked” to hear what I was making and what I was offered at amazon. Only risk is that amazon stock was much better (obviously) than the options at Byton; but I was fine taking the risk to try a new industry. And, the team I interviewed with at byton were far cooler/nicer/had better attitude than the note taking automatons I met during the Amazon onsite.

    One of my former coworker in another company joined recently. Unlikely it will beat Tesla but since it is a startup-ish company you will likely get more exposure to what you want to do.

    No, you won't get FANG salary outside FANG, even in American companies. My friend is Indian and still got an offer and accept it, if that means anything.
