Salary NYC Customer Engineer for Google Cloud Platform
After 7 interviews my recruiter told me they will be extending me an offer for a Customer Engineer (aka sales engineer) position at Google Cloud Platform.
The position is for NY offices.
I don’t have any competing offer, and recruiter has asked me what TC I am looking for.
She threw some number over the phone like:
Base salary: 135-142k
Target Bonus: 20%
GSU: she didn’t say how much but she said Google tends to be generous with shares
Signing Bonus: she didn’t give a number but asked me to think about it
Relocation: she mentioned it but didn’t say how much
I have 7+ years of experience, masters degree, multiple AWS certifications, and I am the founder and organizer of the Cloud meetup in the city I live.
Any idea on how much I should be asking for? I would expect to enter as T4 (is it the same than L4?) but she didn’t mention it (maybe I should ask her). Base salary sounds low compared to other posts I read.
Is 400k for GSU crazy? I was thinking on:
150k base salary + 360k GSU + 30k bonus
