Hi! I might get an L3 DS offer from Google. I am currently L5 at Amazon. Is there leveling correct and can someone tell me the compensation?
Thanks!!

    How come nobody ever talks about what this interview is like? Is it that much of a secret compared to SWE?

      There aren’t any good tips above. That is why I’m asking.

      I just wrote up my experience in this interview. I got the job. But since you don't think advice from someone who went through the interview was good advice, I deleted it.

    Did you make it to Google? How did you prepare for it? Any tips or suggestions? I’m currently a L5 at Amazon and thinking of something similar.

      I would check if that is PhD or non PhD.

      That number is for bachelors or masters. None of my PhD friends have graduated yet

      I didn't get asked a single question about linear regression or GLM. That has me worried.

    Does Google hire non-phd or non masters for quantitative analyst? I’ve always seen them requiring a phd

      Non masters I highly doubt. About 70% have PhD though.

    Did you move from SDET to DS that’s why you got entry level offer?

      Nope. Currently a DE, the comp is going to be more than current though

    • Amazon Cheers!!
      Congrats. How did your interview go? Lots of stats, ML and algorithms?
      Aug 11, 2018
    • New Dbxbs
      It was a mixture of ML, how to set up tests, stats, SQL and python (data cleaning or manipulation). Important thing is to have stats 201 knowledge, basic idea of ML and business intuition

    Also, by DS do you mean the Quantitative Analyst role?

    I don’t have any numbers for you but why would you want to do this? Love analytics?

      Yes love analytics

    TC is pretty bad, but Google is generous with increases and bonuses and that's even without promo. L5 to L3 is a pretty big demotion though.
