I saw an Amazon L5 salary in levels.fyi as $480K in New York.

Is ML/AI that hot and pay double as much?

    • Lol yeah. I know that. But it just triggered the thought that is the ML thing that hot. Not sure if it's a research role or an implementation engineer

    It's not that high. I bet it is around +20-30% of SWE, though.
