Title : Sr SWE
YoE: 5 after college, 6 in total
Salary: 147k+10k signing or 155k base w/o signing, performance bonus 20% + equity
Location: Financial district, SF

It's a FinTech company. They're an early startup(about 1 year old) but already got the product running and generating revenue. So i feel like this company won't be bursted. It's either going to grow or acquired.

However, i found the base salary too low. What do Blind people think about it? What base salary + bonus is acceptable?

      If you don't, then they need to hike the base by about 100k.

      U shouldn’t consider it as part of your TC but if u do it’s currently valued at $0 so they need to put the base or GTFO

      Does it matter? You said yourself that you value it at $0.

    Also how big is the company? You should know how much % of the company you’re getting in equity.

      Basically they said they've got $500M investment for 200M stock. I don't really understand whether this is all the stock that they're handing out or 200M stock is worth some percentage of entire company
