I’m not selected in H-1B lottery and will run out of OPT soon, thinking about moving to Canada.

Does Google have a Canada office? Are they hiring engineers? Is interview bar same as US?

TC 250K

    So a person with degree and capability to get 250k offer has to leave? And people say immigration system is not broken...

      @F5 Networks, you do realize that people could change companies and use the previous blind account right?

      Yes, 265k at Amazon. I worked at Oracle as Research Scientist before moving to Amazon as Applied Scientist. 3 YoE in total.

      OP
      Singapore isn’t an option, only London or Vancouver, VAN is a remote office.

      FB will sponsor these moves but I want backup plans, I don’t want to get PIPed when I’m oversea.

      Don’t go to Singapore . They’re pretty racist and unapologetic about it. Source: my Indian friends working in Singapore

      Canada in general is a decent country to consider. Warm and welcoming people and not very different than USA. I have lived and worked in Canada ( east side ) for a year. I just did not like the slow pace and freezing weather

    There are offices in Toronto, Montreal and Waterloo. Waterloo office is super nice.

      So only Waterloo/Kitchener is the eng office? That sounds a boring place to live though.

      There were engineers in Montreal and Toronto as well, but Waterloo was definitely the biggest. Kitchener did seem like a dead town. Could probably live in Toronto and take the train or something.
