Hi, I've been approached for a Staff SWE at Credit Karma. What TC and breakdown can I expect approximately for this? How does Staff at CK compare to other companies? Just would like to know if it's worth interviewing.

TC: 350 YoE: 6.5

    My offer in December was 241k base (they roll bonus into base) 85k/year in RSUs for a total TC of 326k with RSUs valued at $19? 50k sign on bonus.

    This was for a Staff Engineer role (not SWE but still Engineer).

      12 YOE. I’d dox myself if I mentioned team and tech.

      But it was for a Staff Engineer (I would be leading an entire program and reporting to a director)

      Glad to see Ken isn't still low balling people. Ryan is super nice so I'm sure CK is a great place to work.

      If staff engineer runs a group, what does a manager do?

      Staff Engineer runs the technical development of a program, the manager and director oversees the strategic vision and execution of a program.

      The definition isn't that clear at CK at this point. Some staff engineers have reportees and act as people managers as well.

    252k base, not sure about RSUs.
    Just for an idea, here are Credit Karma levels -
    SWE 1
    SWE 2
    SWE 3
    SWE 4
    Senior Software Engineer
    Senior Software Engineer 2
    Staff Software Engineer
    Senior Staff SWE
    Senior Staff SWE 2
    For ICs.
    You should be reporting to Director.
    Mind sharing team? But I don't see it breaking your current TC

      Commuting from South Bay? Not worth it. I would ask if the team will be in Oakland or SF.

      With your current comp - I would not bother.

      Northern peninsula. problem is not the commute to sf but that ck is in downtown which adds easily another 15 minutes + horrible parking situation. Caltrain / Bart is not my thing.

      OP
      final offer was: I didn't do the interview 😅. Seemed it wasn't worth my time and I'm currently not very motivated to interview anyways. Maybe another time who knows. I know a few folks at CK so I can probably do it easily another time.

    Ah... wonder why not do interview with Lyft? This Sounds like a level 4 offer?
