I have offer from Uber (Senior SWE ~TC 380K) and LinkedIn(Senior ~TC 310K) .
Oracle (Senior ~TC 290K)
Lyft T5 - ~370K
Unfortunately did not clear Facebook.

Currently SDE 2 at Amzn AWS Seattle at around 260K(top of the band). Might become around 270ish this April.

Total work ex around 8.5 years.

Just heard back from recruiter that they will move me to team match stage now cleared HC. Mostly T4.

Based on my current offers and comp, Will Google be open to offer around 300-320k for T4 Seattle ?
What could be the possoble range ?

Any help or pointers is appreciated

      Read some tech papers (Paxos, Chubby, GFS, Kafka, Dynamo) and some online samples on system design. Thats about it. Normal routine work in AWS also involves system knowledge so that might have helped.

  • Google will match or beat the highest offer (any with liquid rsu)

    Google will at least match the offer of public company. For Uber they will partially match the offer. Level wise looks like you will get a L4. You should definitely aim around 320k - 330k

      Do you think my offers in hand are sufficient for Google to bump up. Or is it only Facebook that they generally match with ?

    One of my friends with 2 years experience got $250k offer from G. He had multiple offers like you. I think they’d definitely match the TC. They have a limit on the base though.

    Can we stop including bonus and sign on as TC it’s really not.

      TC = base + targeted bonus + RSU on a yearly basis, not including sign-on or stock refreshers.

      Feb 14, 2018
    • They do ;) if amazon does not it does not apply to others
      Feb 14, 2018
    • Google / Eng var
      FB pays the same, I don't know about Lyft and G sometimes drops your comp by 10% when you transfer. Also the refreshers are lower.

  • Amazon / Other akej78
    Are those offers base + rsu + sign on per year?

    • Amazon / Other akej78
      Wow, Uber and Lyft do base salary up to 300 k?
      Feb 14, 2018
    • Amazon kukuku99
      OP
      Base + Rsu
      Feb 14, 2018
    • Should be able to get 30k signing at least from lyft. Ask for it!

  • Microsoft randomxx
    I see your LinkedIn split up and also your TC of 310k. May I know how you are calculating?
    Is it 180 + 400/4 + 50/4?
    Feb 15, 2018 1
    • Amazon kukuku99
      OP
      Yes, plus bonus of 10% on 180 that is 18k.

    How long until those explode? Team matching can be slow

      OP
      All offers came around these week. So I could probably stall them for a week or two I presume.
