      But I don't blame you guys. Skeptism is understandable.

      135 base is bloody bonkers for SE2. Join at once.

      Perhaps ask for a little sign on and some more stocks?

    Ok PayPal fellows, I was getting 142K base when I was SDE2. Time has changed.

    I would argue for more equity, otherwise what is the point of a company doing well in market if unable to gain from it? If not prefer to have 10k more base and 0 stocks.

    I don't believe you could above 130k for T23. The stocks seem standard too.
