Austin Good Software Compaines

Hi Blinders,

I have 2 YOE and TC is 92k at a relatively small town in Texas. Have side project on Github with more than 800 stars(I know this is useless when it comes to finding a job). Been LC really hard also.

I am looking for software companies in Austin which pay good. I have applied to:
1. Retailmenot: recruiter called last week and HM decided not to move forward
2. Adobe: Interviewing stage but it's not really Adobe. It's Magento and HM said they rely heavily on PHP.
3. Amazon: Onsite next month but not sure even if I get an offer can I ask to be relocated to Austin? Alexa Team
4. Google: Phone Interview...but I kind of bombed it. Still waiting for response.
5. Facebook: Recruiter reached out and said FB is only hiring 5+ years and new grad for now.
6. Homeaway: I applied but they are looking for senior. No response.
7. Apple: Applied for a lot of positions last week. Still no response.
8. Indeed: Applied for a lot of positions. Radio silence.

So any recommendations? Any companies in Austin I could apply for? Thanks.

    For amazon I would clarify with the recruiter that you will not relocate to Seattle. That will save you time from reinterviewing for the Austin teams

      Same TC as seattle, so it's highly competitive

      Meh, as an Austin Amazonian not sure I agree. My org has had open headcount for a while.

    Try Indeed through referrals. I got a call same day as the referral was done. Might be pure luck

    Which position did you apply for at google Austin? Just wondering because there aren’t many technical positions

      Not sure. Recruiter said there are some.

      There are some but they’re technically not swe. There’s some internal product engineering though. Mind sharing your phone interview experience? How hard was it?

      OP
      It wasn’t hard like LC hard but I got three questions and the last one was really vague. To make matters worse, the interviewer was not really responsive.

      Initial offer was 115k base + 20k / year stocks. This was basically less than I was currently making. I asked for 135k .. the hiring manager role he is traveling to someplace in Europe .. ghosted for a while and rejected over email.

      How well do they pay? VISA doesn't really fit my tech stack. I am more of a python, node, javascript guy.

      Might have to hit up Glassdoor for comp info. I know they'll at least pay 120+ for your YOE

    Facebook is only hiring new grads and seniors? Weird

      OP
      That's what the recruiters told me. They said it was either 5+ year seniors or new grads.

      That's unfortunate lol. They want no experience or a decent amount of experience but nothing in between. So it seems they'd rather not take the time for you to learn unless you're fresh off campus. Seems odd. But probably specific to Austin since California has all ages of engineers.
