Looking at open data scientist positions at Amazon. I'm seeing positions like Data Scientist, Data Scientist II, Senior Data Scientist.

Is Data Scientist = SDE 1, L4?
Data Scientist II = SDE 2, L5?
Senior Data Scientist = Senior SDE, L6?

What's the mapping of these titles to the L4 or L5 levels I see on levels.fyi?

    Data scientist II should be L5 and senior is L6. You won't always see the "II" appended to a job title so Data Scientist could be L4 or L5 although formally as you've noted it should be L4.

      P997 is correct.

    OP
    Hmm... In that case they usually specify the numbers of years of experience. Is there a mapping between SDE levels and number of years experience?

    I received a call for a 'data scientist' position L5 level, so I guess what you said isn't true. I don't know the exact hierarchy though.
