      JK. But I personally know a CTO at a major tech company and he gets somewhere between 800k-1mil base. Equity is obviously a lot more than that, and that’s harder to predict since it’s more performance based.

      800-1mil seems a bit lower end. And yeah equity might be around 2x the base I guess.

      As far as I know that’s the upper end of base salary for almost any position expect maybe a CTO. Even then pretty much everything is equity when you get to a higher level.

    Not exactly applicable but friend runs business strategy at Dropbox, and his comp is $500k base plus equity worth around $3 million at current valuation. So CTO comp would definitely be higher than that.

    • If you had any business sense you wouldn’t have asked the question in 1st place. Anonymity is no excuse for being dumb

      Yeah I want my CTO to be able to crush mad code bro. Everyone knows that is how they interview CTOs.

      Lol wut? Why does a CTO need to know how to code? Just have a good business sense, solid logic and chops to lead a group of engineers.

      I have an opening that will beat the base comp. Think I should setup a loop for him?
