I'm mulling over an offer for Uber in SF and would like a second opinion on it.
Position: Software Engineer II (3 years experience)
Offer: 145k base + 9000 RSUs
Coming from the Midwest, not sure how that base pay correlates to standard of living in the Bay Area. It'll be just me, my wife, and our two dogs so living space is a top concern. Also, any suggestions on neighborhoods to look at for housing would be appreciated.
- Uber / Eng jWJO65Wow, I think the rsus are great, I have heard past eng 2 were getting closer to 6k rsu in 2016. For 3 years of exp I think it’s good
- I live in SF on 145k and am able to live a comfortable lifestyle. You should be okay.
- Neighborhoods that are good : Pac heights, Protrero, outer and inner sunset, Richmond, nopa, Bernal. Pretty much anything not in the TL(tenderloin). Since, you’re coming from the Midwest you probably don’t want to move somewhere too noisy/busy like soma to start. Just a suggestion.
- It’s not a lot of money but for 3 years of experience, you can’t expect a lot more than that for base salary.
How about bonus?
