185k base
$27k annual bonus
15,500 shares, 409a price of $42/share.

I have definitely seen data points for higher 5a offers on Blind. How much room for improvement do I have?

      Great offer. Obviously depends on how Uber performs in the market in the near term, if you plan to sell shares upon vesting, but overall if it looks like great

    1. Offer is good.
    2. I wouldn't count on the refresher. It's subject to change.

      Is that the top end for 5a SWE?

      I guess it’s possible based on previous threads on Uber. Plus I guess they may not be giving out more stocks with the IPO impending.

    Way more than anyone with only 6 YOE deserves. Reads like a $375k per year to start offer. That is completely insane.

    In the offer, do they provide number of socks or an amount equivalent to number of socks? I'm asking because, say if you join after Uber goes IPO at double the 409a price, you would get same 15,500 stocks or half of it.

      The offer contains the number of shares, and the 409a price.

      I hope that doesn't change when you actually join. Someone told me that, final stocks number will be decided based on your date of joining

      No. The offer letter has only number of shares. No 409a value. So he will get 15.5k RSUs

    Depends on YOE offer numbers might look different - but in your case nothing will change, once Uber gives offer it then take it or leave it kind of situation - if you can let us know your YOE, we can let you know if it’s a good offer or not.

    My guess is yours YOE is around 8 years - for which this is a great offer 👍
