Help needed in deciding the offer

Verizon viEO20
Apr 20 21 Comments

I have four offers currently and need help in choosing one of them. Twitter (SRE role) vs Fitbit(Senior Software Engineer) vs Aruba(HPE) (senior sw engineer) vs Hitachi (IOT senior software engineer)

Take home package is almost same for all of these companies.

Also how easy it is to switch from sre to swe role again?

Twitter/Aruba/Fitbit base 170k joining bonus ~50k
Twitter/Fitbit (12 percent bonus ) and Aruba 10 percent.
Aruba : 4000 rsus.

Cons in each role :

Twitter : SRE role.
Fitbit : stability of the company.
Aruba : new project and concerned about it's stability as well.


4 yoe. Currently underpaid in Verizon (120k base)

    I'd probably go with Fitbit. It's the best name brand that still keeps the Senior Software Engineer title (instead of SRE).

      Is Fitbit a stable company compared to Aruba ?

      Unclear, but it certainly has better name recognition

      $700M cash in the bank, and back to profitability. Leadership sucks and so do merit increases. Wlb is great

    It depends on the engineering team at Fitbit. Also, the stability thing does weigh on you the longer you stay. Fitbitโ€™s stock has stayed in the $4-6 range while other tech companies have been skyrocketing.

      This can't be true. Are you sure no stocks at Twitter?

      My guess is that it's because it's SRE instead of SWE

      @stonedbiz : its not fake post :( if at all I can demand rsus from the HR.. what's the number I can start with ?

      But again.. it's SRE role in Twitter and I am scared to take sre role... Because I might find difficult to switch back to Dev in future.

      I am not sure about taking sre role in Twitter. I am worried about the possibility of not able to switch back to Dev from SRE role.!

    List numbers. If you donโ€™t want exact numbers just shift them a bit or approximate to at least show. Also list benefits and what you think so far so ppl can chime in
