    That’s super high for Amazon Seattle. Somewhat high for Bay Area. It’s better than I got when I was hired as SDE2 and I had to bend them over a barrel with 12 years exp.

    That being said, I learned the hard way. No raises, bonuses, etc the first two years, outside of a promotion. So make sure you set yourself up well if you take it.

      It's also surprising that one gets sde2 with 2 yoe. Good, I rejected their offer.

    That's a very good offer in terms of sign on and RSUs. Base could go a little higher. I got 100 RSUs for 6 yoe. Haha
