What is the average salary breakdown for a Director of data engineering for a large company in the bay area? I am not interested in Google, Facebook, Netflix etc as they are exception to the norm. All
I could find in previous posts was for those companies.

    Director is equivalent to principal eng level here at salesforce. Total comp is 300 to 350k if you include RSUs and bonus. Bonus rate is 20% and the company multiplier has been really good the past few years. Sfdc is doing very well

      Who cares about title lol. Twitter offer was like 50% less than the sfdc one I got. Three people including a director just joined my team from twitter. You are on a sinking ship kept barely afloat by the POTUS

      Hah that’s really a sr engineers total comp for top tier companies, no wonder you don’t care about title since it’s really inflated at sfdc.

    I get things done.
    180 to 210 base, 20 to 30% bonus, 100K USD worth stock refresh at semiconductor companies. Industrial data science is going to be hot. Throw in IOT for 10% more money.

    There's huge difference between director positions. In general, it'd be within the range 160-210K
