L4 offer at Google, data scientist

Daimler / Eng blamo!
Apr 14, 2018 22 Comments

1.5 years xp, PhD in sciences. 145k base / 15% annual bonus / 200k stocks vesting over 4 years / 25k signing, 1% increase over current TC with no competing offers. Recruiter tells me this offer required escalation to the director of the org, and that it's around the upper middle of the L4 range. Thoughts?

    It's definitely in the upper region of L4 for Data Scientists. Please keep in mind that here almost all comp discussions are based for SDEs.

    Is data scientist pay at Google different from SWE pay? This seems pretty low for a L4 SWE.

    Don't trust your recruiter. Get competing offers.

    It's not a bad offer. I'm a swe. Came in as l4 with eng PhD with one year experience with 130 base and 220k stock and no sign on and no competing offer.

    Great offer, I'd take it, it's more than a typical L4 PM offer out of business school.
