Hi, just thought to hear someones opinion. The story has started few weeks ago when i was contacted by Atlassian recruiter saying they have got a wonderful Senior Engineer position for me and if i would like to go for it. We have discussed some details including my expectations on compensation. During next couple of weeks i have passed all together 4 interviews (3 technical) with positive recruiters feedback. So the last step now is the cultural fit interview. Just now i have got a call from the recruiter saying there are likely would not be able to onboard me as Senior but ready to offer Mid level position with lower salary explained it with very high role bars. Not that i would be so strict about the salary, but i dont feel taking mid role after 6 years in senior position. Have you ever experience anythin similar?

      TC calc here in Aus is probably diff to US. My base now 120K AUD (+ about 20 as equity) - actively growing tech startup. I asked for 150K AUD base. They came with 100 - 125K AUD max for mid and asking if i want to continue.

      Tell them to fuck off with that offer. Stick to what you ask for and don't back down.

      Never settle for less. Do not sound desperate too. But negotiate. Good luck!!!

      Tell them you really like the company, had heard great things liked your interviewers etc, and that at the conclusion of the process you were inclined to accept their offer for the original position (build this up) . You are disappointed to learn that you just don’t seem to be on the same page with regards to leveling and compensation and therefore you’ll have to decline.

    “I can almost promise you’d be promoted within a year if you perform well, so really it’s just temporary”
    Yes, typical trick you here

    If you want to jump aboard go for it. I know few people who’ve done the same. Possibly it was how your interview performance was. Additionally you could then immediately keep interviewing (why stop) and if you get another company offering that better position and pay, jump.

    Did they ask you design questions and hard DS questions? What did you feel about the questions - were they easy or difficult for a senior dev? Check in glass door and compare your interview

      There were different questions. Some quite easy, other would give us some more space for discussion. None of the questions were blocking hard.
