Curious to hear from those who live and work in Austin in the Tech world (startup or public). Where did you move from? Do you like it? Is there a strong industry there to have options?

Have family there and may consider moving from Seattle and Amazon to Austin and would require a great role in recruiting leadership to make sense financially. Long time Amazonian and looking for a change, would love some tips on companies and the location in general.

    Do Apple, Google, FB pay standard wage in Austin or is it a lower band? I’m assuming they aren’t paying Bay wages there.

      Is any other company paying Bay area wage outside Bay area?

      I’m asking for real examples. I see and hear differing examples. Careful Indeed, if you live in a glass house, don’t throw stones

      Would never ruin the natural light coming through! But really, part of the reason offices are popping up is because of the COL in Austin. No state income tax and tech talent that is growing or getting better because of the companies that are here. You're best bet is to try and swing your current salary in a transfer to Austin - could be done with whole foods hq here

      Fair enough. I know a lot about the market, one of those things being that COL is increasing quickly. I’d need the comp to be 300+ for it to be worth it

    I am planning to move to Austin. It is a growing tech hub. Austin is liberal and open but surrounded by Texas.

    Austin sucks. Hot 8 months a year and stupid Republicans run the state. Screw them. I'll stay in the Bay.
