Moving after E5 FB

What are my options to move out of FB at E5 after total of ~6yrs exp and PhD in CS?
Tried Uber but they are matching me at E5a and TC is way lower than my current TC.
I don't want to join Google, MS or Amazon. Mainly looking for a good startup or somewhere they can match my current TC.

      TC: 380K including RSU ( which fluctuate a lot :( )

      This is the downside to being a high-performer. Other places will downlevel you because they are skeptical you can reproduce your performance there. Sadly most startups pay a lot less so you’ll struggle to match your TC there, and the tech companies that pay well will probably downlevel you and/or not match your TC.

      I think your best chance to match or beat your TC is to get lots of competing offers and interview at as many places as you can to play them against each other.

      6 months from now Airbnb will still not have IPOed (in fact my prediction is no Airbnb ipo this year). U let me know how that paper money is working out for you.

    Try hard to Negotiate with Uber? Any good competing offer? I am in similar situation as you. How about Pinterest, Airbnb, slack, Robinhood?

      Pinterest/Robinhood doesn't match my profile. Trying for others. Uber's offer was verbally for a team and they said to wait until IPO

      What does wait until IPO mean? No official offer before IPO?

      Uber offer was way less in base, stocks and bonus for 5a level verbally. Didn't even bother asking for actual one.

    Airbnb is not IPOing this year. The CEO hinted at that himself. Airbnb doesn’t need to IPO, they are profitable, in no rush.
