Hi,

I passed the interview process with Amazon and am currently negotiating total compensation for the SDE II position with an emphasis on ML/deep learning. I would like to know the total compensation distribution (percentiles for base salary, equity, bonuses) for someone with a master’s degree and two years of industry experience.

Thanks

      Hmm, good question. I could’ve sworn I was bumped to L4 but that the title was SDE II. Thanks for heads up.

    They offered me 147/60+45/90. All things considered that was worse than my MS compensation.

      Ah, thanks for the hard numbers. I see you decided not to go with Amazon, lol. What other factors influenced your decision?

      Meaning what TC they offered you.

      Thanks for the clarification. As mentioned above, they haven’t yet offered TC. They want a ball-park estimate from me before offering hard numbers. I’ll follow up after official offer.

    Follow-up question: if the recruiter makes a verbal offer that I accept and then speaks to the hiring manager to confirm, how likely is it that they will change the offer?
