Got an offer from Uber for 5a hardware role.

Base: 150k
Initial equity: 420k(10k shares per $42, for 4 years)
Cash bonus: 20k
Refresher: 50k

Current TC: 250k
YOE: 9

Would like to to ask if anyone know is this a good hardware offer or not from Uber. It was hard to find any hardware offer related information. Hope this thread can help some people as well since Uber start to hire hardware roles.

Much appreciated for any feedback.

>>>start thinking how can I switch to SW.......I realized and understood HW pay is lower in tech companies

      Seriously? Also Refresh is only half compared to sw. How come is that low. Other parts are only 20~30% low.

      It's all about supply and demand. Transition to SW if you care

    Clarifying question (might be stupid):
    “Initial equity: 420k(10k shares per $42, for 4 years)”

    Is this a grant or would you have to purchase those 10k stocks?

      It is like RSU, one time grant, vesting over 4 years.

    Surprised we still have refresher amount in the offer letter. What is the vesting period for the refreshes?
