What are the highest paying companies for hardware roles? Which companies notoriously underpay? Would help a lot for job search purposes! Thanks in advanced!

      You said it. How is Juul different than Camel? Camel also marketed to adults, remember those adult cartoons they used? Remember how they tried to make smoking cool? Kids definitely don't want to be cool. Also, you have no clue what the health effects are. Say hi to David!

    • Oktc58, you’re right. I shouldn’t have offloaded our responsibility that way. Sorry.

      But we are standing up to our role. that’s why we have this age verification process.

      We have teams that take down unauthorized sellers like those on eBay and teams that validates drivers licenses. And teams that go after counterfeit.

      We only sell adult flavors in retail and moved fruit or candy flavors to online, which requires age verification.

      We’re adding technology to the vaporizer so that the owner could lock them to prevent kids from sneaking puffs. Future pods and vaporizers can be tracked online like how we track UPS shipment today.

      Juul is proactively working with FDA to raise the standard for selling products in our category so that it vets out other players who can’t meet the standards.

      I hope i sound calm through my words but it’s okay if you think I’m being defensive. I just want the job seekers out here to see that Juul is doing our part. And we need more talents to help us raise the bar.

      Hey JUUL.. i would work for you. But i fear I will be rejected for being overqualified. I had a look at your career section. JUUL needs really basic electronics and nothing even remotely advanced, so not sure if I am a fit

      Are you guys struggling to fill positions ?

    • I can’t speak for all positions, but the common engineer positions we get 30+ new applications on each req every day. I interviewed 3 folks for the same position this week alone as someone on the project team.

      Apple is not a hardware company. They sell fashion accessories that happen to be functional computing devices.

    Broadcom is definitely in the top 3 list. I’ve read here even Apple couldn’t match Broadcom TCs.
    Google doesn’t pay HW that well.
    So I’d say top 3 are: FB, BRCM and Amazon.

    Apple might not pay initially but if you do reasonably well after 2-3 years ,you can be in 300-350 bracket for ict4

    How much does FB oculus pay ,let’s say for 10 years (I know google and Brcm sal)
    May 31 3
    • Facebook qHPD23
      First thing I’d say: YOE doesn’t carry as much weight at FB vs more traditional HW companies.

      My team has made offers at E5/E6 to candidates with 4 YOE and offers at E4 to someone with 12. Offers are calibrated based on skill and talent first with things like educational pedigree and duration of experience as secondary factors.

      Rough #s for TC (salary, RSU, bonus)
      E3: 150k
      E4: 210k
      E5: 300k
      E6: 400k
      E7+ measured in Lambos
