[created this thread before but my account changed from old company -> Snap and seems like it got deleted]

Hey everyone,

Recently joined Snap and really enjoying it so far. Work is really impactful to the company, good sense of team work, and comp is really great, even if you are currently at G/FB. Stock also vests monthly in equal parts with no cliff! Lots of great work in Android, iOS, ML, backend, product, data science, content creation, sales, product marketing

1) If you have questions about the company, ask in this thread and I'll reply for all

2) If you are interested in considering a career at Snap, go to Snap careers amd find a role that is a good fit and then DM me with link to the role, your resume/linkedIn, and a sentence or two on why its a match. Happy to refer you.

      Hmm. They just mention generic stuff like most listings: Java, C++ and/or Python, so just curious what the stack actually looks like :)

      Some older parts are mainly Java, the new stuff is mostly Go. The mix is different from team to team

    Congrats on the new gig Snappy2!

    I did not see remote engineering jobs on the careers page. Do the snap employees have the option to work remotely? If so full-time or only part-time? How's the WLB there? Do you have any details about the infrastructure / production eng. team?

      OP
      Haven't heard much about remote workers but they do offer a relocate bonus. WLB has been reasonable so far but people work hard. Don't know much about that team sorry

    How is it on the sales team at Snap? How does it compare to FB/Google in terms of culture and comp?

      OP
      Not sure but Snap comp beats FB/G in my experience so wouldn't be surprised if that was the case for sales as well

    I heard the TC is insanely high compared to Google and Facebook is it true? Also do you see the company sustainable and grow at decent pace

      OP
      Yup, TC is great, check levels.fyi comp for data. It is accurate. From the interview process I came way optimistic about the future of the company. That hasn't changed

    I’m applying to Snap. Should I use my normal resume format or go for a resume with more design? Should I include something that points to my Snapchat account?
