    Probably looking at l61. Maybe 135 base, 100k rsu, 30k sign on. Something like that. That gives you between 185-205 TC over 4 years not counting merit raises or promos. This last year l61 got between 40-50k extra stock awards as well. Also, you will very likely be promoted during the 4 years, perhaps more than once which would raise your TC as well.

    Oh wait I see you asked about senior. That indicates l63 but external candidates with only 3 toe would normally not be considered for senior positions.

      It's a bit of a gray area but I'd guess 5 or so. That said, it's a relatively specialized skill so you may want to give it a go. They can only say no, right? Another option is they may offer you at an sde 2 level (l61 as I described above, and l62 are both sde 2).
