Twitch : L5
Levels start at L1 at Snap, and L4 at Twitch, so Snap is giving me the more senior role.
Still waiting on offer details, but from initial conversations, Twitch TC will be ~230-250k the first year and Snap will be ~380k.
Both roles would be in the Bay. Twitch gives Amazon RSUs, which are more stable, but have a heavily backloaded vesting schedule. Snap stock has been rocky, but will start vesting immediately (and there’s a lot of potential upside since the stock would be granted at the current 1-2 month average).
I have Pinterest, Facebook, Google, and Uber onsites upcoming, but if these two were your only choices, what would you pick?
Twitch : L5
- Amazon / Eng ShoopySnap. No question. That’s a $150k TC difference. Why are you even contemplating?
- Twitch / Eng GdufuTwitch has become alot better over the past 6 months with the new office and cleaning up some of the mismanagement. Certain teams are also better than others. Happy to trade DMs if you have more questions.
- Facebook / Eng Vkfkf393Snap. Look at Twitch ratings on Glassdoor, it's gone down dramatically after the acquisition.
How many years of experience do you have?
- snap’s vesting schedule is nice. monthly with no cliff. should help guard against the downside of the stock decline
- Apple / Eng Apple ParkThink about the overall condition of Snapchat and how that company is being ran. Given the massive decline in their stock price due to mis-management, I would also think long and hard about the risk involved with any compensation package that includes stock.
My opinion is to stay away from Snap, but that’s not an endorsement for Twitch. Honestly, I’d throw those interviews into the ‘prepping for something better’ bucket and shoot for one of the FANG opportunities.
- Snapchat MVVI80Snap. Management is getting better right now with much better focus. It also depends on team/project for both options. Vesting schedule recently changed. It used to be 1year cliff.
- For oop design was that like the concepts of oop such as polymorphism and inheritance or like designing something using oop concepts?
- Can you talk about how the twitch interview process was? How were the coding questions and how many?
- Ellation SgNh86Snap, thats just too much of a tc difference.
how long did it take for Twitch get back to you after onsite?
