- Out of curiosity what is your TC as a trader?
And yes, lots of big companies and unicorns have fintech engineering and data science orgs that will really value your experience.
- New MzTx45OPI got 150k base plus 10% of the pnl i made as bonus. 60pct in cash 40pct deferral in 2yrs
- Interesting. The unicorns/FAANG certainly have finance or money data science departments that would really value your skills.
My guess is that you could make $400-600k, depending on how well you do in the interview and whatnot.
Eventually as a very senior data scientist at FAANG, you’re looking at 700k+, especially if you go into management. (Consider getting a PhD though, not sure how PhDs feel about being managed by a guy without one.)Apr 21 0
