Hi,
I was wondering whether you know any companies where you could do low level C programming and have high compensation.

Other than Apple, Microsoft (operating system work) maybe Google and Facebook (not really sure here), do you know anything else?

Thanks!

    Nope. Learn to align buttons. That’s where the high tc is at.

    Trading firms and large cloud providers. Maybe networking and hardware companies

      Won't recommend though. Cloud providers are better.

    Cruise pays comparable to FANG for C++

    Look into robotics related companies and simulation teams.

      Interesting. Out of curiosity, could you shed some light on what these teams are?

    Many of them once you get senior enough? Definitely any of the usual well paying employers.

    But, you don't specify what you consider to be high compensation.

  • Anything non HFt doesn’t pay anywhere close to FanG levels . However you can join a startup and get rich if you get lucky
