    Curious what your background/training is in? I'm interested in data science, currently working as a program manager.

      It’s not E5. Description above says “data science”. So it’s not Engineering

      Is there that much difference between E5 and D5?

      lol there’s no D5. Everything else is just lumped together as L5, everything from Legal to Graphic Designer.

      Yeah the Engineering numbers are much higher. Level 5 engineer would get 3-4x the equity than what you’re seeing here.

    Why Uber pays so low to DS . Should bump up salary to attract mature talent

    Work very hard to get max offer from Facebook. Then tell Google about the FB numbers, and good chance they will match.

    I don’t think E5 is the right label here

      T4 is pretty often an E5, if you meant level mismatch
