Receive an email saying Amazon is creating another job title FEE under SDE job family. What does this imply? Does FEE usually receive higher or lower pay than SDE or the same? Is it worth trying?

No troll please.

      Is in the SDE family. Pay is the same. Interview will be different since most SDEs wouldn't pass it, including the dude that said this.

      @hsl44428q, May I ask why most sde won’t pass the interview? The skill sets are harder? Is it possible to do internal transfer you think?

      FEE interviews will be heavily frontend focused, and most SDEs aren't particularly good at actual frontend work. Skill sets aren't harder, bit different. There's a transfer process for FEE that will involve your manager and a committee but it should be a relatively painless process if you already work the frontend primarily and are part of the oncall queue.

    I basically am this but was hired before this title was created. Should I attempt to get this title or stay as a “generalist” who is honestly just frontend. Is there any benefit to conforming to this role?

      You should stay as SDE. It looks better

    WDE < ( FEE == SDE)

    Basically your title should match what you do. Plus it has a higher pay band than WDE.

    Biggest benefit is the job title matches your desired work. SDE doesn't look better on a resume unless you don't want to be a frontend only dev. Change titles if you want to be frontend/full stack. Stay SDE if you want to primarily work backend.

    It's a new role. Created this week. It will be similar pay as SDE.

    Same compensation at places like FB. No idea about Amazon. Usually it's just a different interview track.
