    It looks like it is IC4.

    That looks like an ic4 offer. You should be able to negotiate a higher rsu amount but the base is probably as good as it gets.

    6yoe and ic4 seems off too. That should be in ic5 range.

    I would push for ic5 (if you think you're qualified) and more rsus

      I was told I was being brought in as an ic5. What are the requirements and salary for an ic5? I am in North America.

    Square isn’t the best when it comes to sign on. If location is Atlanta definitely take it. Otherwise, it’s up to you, it’s probably the best company I’ve worked for (Amazon’s and Microsoft being the others) but I have 2.5 YOE so up to you how much you want to believe me.

    200k RSUs? Is that a typo?

    Where in North America? Your salary in Atlanta vs New York would be very different.

    As long as it’s not Seattle or New York, it’s a great offer. Probably Atlanta or Canada I assume
