I’m 30.5 years old with a saving of 100k. 5 yoe.
Recently got a work from home offer (8 hours / day) with 150k in TC. I’m living in a low cost city with an annual expense of 26k. So after tax (114k, using a corporation to lower tax) and expenses, I’ll be able to save around 88k per year.
I have been also contacting hrs from Apple, Google, FB and Amazon. I’m LeetCoding now and hope to interview with them later this year. My target TC is 300k and would probably not accept any offer lower than this. Assuming the positions are all at Silicon Valley, would it financially make sense to move to SV?
Downsides would be potential long commute, bad traffic, sausage fest demographics, tech monoculture etc
