    For L6 SDE, expect 300k~350k in Seattle. (I’m L6 SDE)

      This. My initial offer was a bit over 300 and was taken up to 350. They were willing to lose me to a competitor vs paying more than 350.

      It goes a bit higher (10%) in Bay area.

    In Seattle L6 start at $250k but go above $300k. Bay area is 15% more I believe, so probably shoot for $350k?

      Is this the base compensation or more? If more, what all does it include? Bonus? RSUs? Etc.

      In Seattle, L6 range is from 250k-300k

      ^ It’s 250k~350k in Seattle. I also heard a rumor (from a convincing source) that the target comp for L6 SDE will be raised this year.

    What about Non-SDE, non-Tech L6?

      TC of L6 TPM is 10~15% lower. Not sure about non-Tech. At Amazon, TC is not tied with a level.
