I am a software architect at a small startup in the Midwest with 7-10 years development experience in backend API development, distributed systems, microservices, etc. Current salary is 140k in the Midwest. I am currently prepping with LeetCode and would love some help on where I should expect to interview at level-wise. I’m aware that since I do not have a FAANG company on my resume I will be downleveled. Should I expect to be downleveled to level 4/5?
