    Senior Software Engineer here, offer was 180k plus 60k/yr in RSUs post series D, which after Series E is worth 150k/yr, putting me around 330k/yr right now with around 5 yoe.

    Not sure what offers are like post series E, but I think I'm at the lower end of the comp band.

    Do keep in mind, we are a startup, and thus TC is nowhere near where FAANG level companies are, as there's expected growth of the stock value.

      You were not offered 330k per year.. you were offered 240k per year,.
      For a startup, its good base but really low equity imho..

      It’s hard to compare equity with FANG, because you are comparing an early stage 409A value with the public stock of a company way later in growth maturity. I would ask what would be the value of the stock for Facebook and Amazon at Series D level.

      The rsu is too low. Nobody calculate TC based on a “projected” value. If anything people discount startup’s rsu by 50% since most of them never ipo
