    Wow. That's pretty good for L4 application engineer. Base is on par with SWE. Stocks can go up though. Another question I would ask is have you read the job description for application engineer?

      Thanks.
      Yes. Based on the JD sounds like work on internal apps and develop integrations b/w apps and systems.

      Yes. I just wanted you to know this since this much different than SWE role at Google.

      I hear what you are saying. This might not be the most interesting or planet changing role.. but let's see. Will try internal or external move if it becomes unbearable in a couple of years.

    @Googler19 did you have to send the Bloomberg offer to recruiter or you told them verbally.

    Good offer but RSU can go up. Shoot for 300k stocks.
