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.

    The rsu value is too high man.

    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.

    For each level/location there’s a target amount for RSU refresh. The majority of people meet this target unless their performance is very low. For SDE III in Bay I’d guess that the target is 40-70k. (Note, working there 0-12 months you get 0 Refresh, working there 12-18 months you get 50% target)

      110-125k salary. 10% annual bonus. 30-60k stock on signing. Target annual stock refreshers around 30k (no stock refresh before 12 months, 50% of target before 18 months)
