I am a citizen of India. How is this offer ? Will they give any sign-on bonus or any other attractive benefits ??
Is this salary good for a family of 4 ? (Currently saving 2000$ per month after all expenses in Bay Area). How costly is international schooling ?

    Before making a decision,
    - check the prices in the area where you want to rent/own.
    - if u r planning to have kids and raise them when you are in Amsterdam, check the cost of education based on where you would send your kids. If this is not the case for next 5 to 6 years skip this step.
    - check if you would like the community where you will live.
    - having friends around would really help, do you have friends there or can you find good friends

    I don’t think you will find realistic answers based on your needs in Blind, but you may find the answers you are looking for.

    I’ve been to Amsterdam once as a tourist. It is a beautiful city with high cost of living(hotels and food). That is my perception based on few days of staying there.

    Not an advice:
    It is completely your choice to be in the rat race or not and the location need not be the first choice to decide that.

    Good luck!

      Thank you for the long and valuable note. I have 2 kids and I know international schools will be really expensive also rent is the range of 1700-2200$ in good areas. I am leaning towards current place, will wait for a better opportunity.

    Good offer for a Senior, insane offer for a core dev.

    The base would be similar for an L4 at Uber in Amsterdam, but the stock a lot higher, with a nice potential upside thanks to the IPO coming.

    As an eng manager, you’d get a bit shy than double the TC here. Manager starts at L5 and L5 TC would be around EUR 170K (not sure if higher for managers). Have you interviewed with us?

    Sign-on bonus is rare. Benefits sucks against LinkedIn Bay area.

    Offer is good, not the best, and guys are right Uber pays more, just consider it.

    Company and people are overall good, there are few projects and managers which I would avoid, but you can always change after some time.

    Problem is not with offer, but culture and lifestyle. Amsterdam is very expensive, forget about international schools, private ones are too expensive and subsidized ones have a queue for few years.

    Even with 30% tax ruling, don’t expect to save 2k per month.
