    Tell them that Uber was the sinking Titanic and that you are the raft that's gonna save their day.

    More $$$

    Think 200k base + 1% equity minimum to get some noise.

      You changed the comment.

      Risk/Reward ratio is too high even at 0.6%. Even with 0.6%, you need to have an exit at over 200M to make it worth.

      Probably will increase equity package overtime, following the Wealthfront model.

    Try to tailgate into the Uber office and hand out business cards.

    I’m another laid off Uber eng. I’ve been noticing that it is challenging for startups to match the TC + refreshers + perks + WLB we might get at FAANG. Your best bet is to push technical freedoms, great culture, a fun problem to solve, and your growth story. Those are things that big companies frequently can’t offer.
