Uber Senior SWE salary?

Jan 9, 2018 18 Comments

Had a friend join recently, told me he made 160k + 15% bonus for Senior SWE, does that sound accurate? ~3 years relevant exp., Last worked at two failed startups, so almost want to call BS.

    Too low. Most senior eng today will start around 175-180+. Bonus/refreshers around 100k and stock anywhere from 400-700k.

      100k bonuses are for average. Uber in the past has followed a crazy exponential curve where that 100k could be 2-5x depending on your performance. I wish we continue to keep some of those elements going forward.

      Are we talking about 100k yearly cash bonus for meeting expectations?

    • I can confirm the base. Per our internal discussions thereโ€™s huge variations in bonus per team / org and of course perf. Initial stock grant also varies.

    Also Uber doesnโ€™t give bonus as percent of base. So the 15% sounds like bs
