I was surprised that Apple has a dev center im Vancouver and it got me interested. If anyone from Apple, Vancoucer reads this, can you answer the following questions😊

Where is the office?
How is the WLB?
What tech stack do you use in your project?
Whats the promotion process like?
Whats the TC for someone in the ICT3 level?

YOE: 4
TC: 180k

    Do you mean 4 YOE in terms of Amazon or total YOE?

      Yes in theory I should have been hired as SDE3 and I should have only accepted a SDE3 offer like a colleague of mine did. But I was stupid in this regard and didn't do the due dilligence properly before I joined. If I had known what a hassle internal promotion is and all this promo doc shit that is required, I would have made sure to only join in L6. Where I came from I was way better off in terms of QoL and purchasing power ratio to income than I'm in Vancouver now. So it feels a bit like I have been screwed by Amazon.
      My plan is this after all: I'll likely leave after 2nd anniversary with a better external package.

    I work in Cupertino, so I can’t answer most of these - but the Vancouver office mostly houses part of the DT (Development Technologies) team. So these are people working on Xcode and some of the relevant web services like the developer and provisioning portals.
