Was wondering what would be the expected TC for a senior software engineer @ Spotify NYC office.

    Not great. Offers are low average at best to begin with but your TC will slowly drop over time with the stock price. And Spotify doesn't do refreshers.

    Can't beat the WLB though.

      Yes they do, but not across the board. They exist if they want to retain you.

      Everyone I know who was hoping for retention was told if they can do better elsewhere, they should. We all see the same goodbye emails. The senior attrition is real. If you've managed to pull retention I applaud you, but I've been here for years and never seen it happen so it seems to be unrealistically rare.

      Yes(agreed), but I’ve seen it

    I'm SE2 (so l4 I guess?). My base is similar to what I've seen others post here for FB, Uber, Google.. it's our lack of bonuses that sucks. Can't speak to the equity package since our stock is 💩 right now but I'm not trying to cash in anytime soon.

    That being said the WLB is great. I WFH once a week, get to do half days if I have appointments in morning or afternoon. Get to travel internationally for offsites and conferences. Play videogames with coworkers at lunch. I hear Spotifiers encourage people to take a break and go home if they're still here at 6pm (at least where I'm at). If you value WLB, would def recommend it here.

    Damn :/ seems like such a great company otherwise! I already have a ~300k offer in bay area, but I doubt they could match it

      Never thought about Salesforce. Is it worth checking out? I'm currently at on-site phase for FB and Uber but I could keep looking.

      Salesforce would match almost any offer and has pretty good WLB

    It was said on another forum that seniors make under 225. Stock packages are weak but base can be ok.

    I'm non senior with a TC just over 200. 175 base but I think I'm on the edge and interviewed really well and may be an exception but I dunno.

    I didn't have any competing offers.

      175 base is high for non senior.. either that or these bands are ridiculously wide.

      Did you join before or after going public?

      After

      Yeah I need to jump ship. Going public castrated my TC.

      I'm senior. Was comfortably $250k+ before going public. I'm heading for $200 and getting closer every quarter.
