      SDE1 band is $135k-$172k, apparently. Not including stock fluctuations.

    Low end. You need waaay more shares. Also you need to beef up the sign on by 10K at least.

    Looks like you are an on fence hire and you don't have competing offers...

    TC = base + annual bonus + (sign on + rsu)/4
