Hardware salaries at Google and FB

Apr 13, 2018 11 Comments

What do the salaries look like for hardware architect type role at G and FB? Say for L6/L7 kind of role. Will it be the same as that for a SWE with similar experience?

If the domain is ML, can the salaries go even higher than SWE?

      170k base, 15% target bonus, 375k/4 stock. I didn’t include sign on which was 50k, but that’s only first year.

      Seems from blind posts that this is low end of comp for software L5, maybe high end L4, even. But fuck man, it’s way more than I made before...
