Does internal tool SWE get same pay at Google?

Mar 15 14 Comments

The hiring bar seems to be the same since all candidates need to pass HC first. Got a match with an internal tool team. My initial offers seems to be on par with numbers on levels.fyi.

My question is - will the pay level remain the same over the time after I join the team? Afaik Facebook pays “enterprise engineers” less than regular SWE, however those engineers were interviewed as “EE” in the first place, so the expectations might be difference.

Clarification: it’s not a SETI role. The role will actually build a tool for other functions to use. Thinking of something like a HR system etc.

    Yes. Pay is same. Work may not be that interesting though. But to each his own. Some ppl like working on tools.

    Google uses third party software for HR and such. Stuff that's considered internal tools in Google are things that start as Google docs, code ide, code versioning tool, vast ml infrastructure etc. It ain't paystub cutting software.

    No difference in pay. There are lots of internal tools at Google, many are quite impactful!

    Pay is the same, but you don't get projects as interesting and impactful as SWEs. Plus promotion is a bit slower because of that.

      Sorry I should have clarified. This is not a SETI role. See OP for the edit.
