Got an offer from Tableau as a Senior SDET. the position is at Kirkland . Right now they are offering $325,000 as RSUs with no signing bonus and base salary yet to be quoted.

I am thinking of changing the location to Austin. Can anyone please let me know what is the current compensation( base salary, RSUs, bonus, signing bonus ) for a Senior SDET in Tableau in Austin? i am having 11 years of experience in Testing/ SDET.

thanks in advance.

    I read in the reviews that senior sde get around $650,000 in RSUs, i know SDETs should be lesser , but just 1/2 is a bit low in my opinion. Should be atleast 70% of senior sdes no?

      I think your numbers are off 5000 rsu @ 120 a share is ~600k which was the staff level offer 12 months ago .

      We changed from offering numbers of RSU to a dollar value recently, and in my opinion really lowballed the dollar value. I suspect itโ€™s to pull us more in line with Salesforce numbers, but thatโ€™s just speculation.

    Doesn't answer your question, but Salesforce got rid of SDET role a couple years ago. It may not happen right away, but I'd expect the same to happen at Tableau eventually. That might be a good thing if you want to transition to be a non test Engineer.

      Leetcode medium and design level questions. ( Identify classes for a testing framework for a hypothetical scenario)

      This will likely change, although I hope not. I prefer stock based comp

      Yes. Going through other reviews I know this is quite less. Will have to ask for more.
