What is the compensation for SDE III at GoDaddy in the Bay area? I would like to understand the title hierarchy as well. When they say RSU refresh every year based on performance, does this translate to RSU refresh each year or do they weasel out by citing poor metrics? Appreciate the response.
Each Level += about 10k RSUs annual until 4/5.
Level 3 is equivalent to level 1 senior engineer. Level 4 is level 2 senior. Level 5 is principal 1 and so forth. Most people are not expected to go beyond levels 4/5. Level 4/5 can be thought of the same cap as like Google Sr software engineer. Most people are not expected or able to be staff level when at google.
We definitely cannot pay fang level nor do we even try to come close to it. For level 3 Id expect TC to be around 150-175k annual. The only real benefit is remote work + basically no vacation tracking. Managers basically never say no to vacation. Do not come here if you expect high comp or comp is the 95% driver at the end of the day.
