Dec 13, 2018 34 Comments

4 YOE

$13,500 annual target cash bonus
9,555 shares * $40.8/share ($389,800) (1 year cliff, 4 years schedule)

What do you guys think. Recruiter said I might be able to increase the signing bonus. Anything else I should try to increase? I’m coming in at high SWE II level.

      How is that possibly funny?

      It’s funny because it’s not all the response I expected. Humor often lies in the unexpected. Are you an android?

      No, I haven't eaten since Tuesday, and you're here asking what people think about your $155k USD base. Why oh why do you torture.

      Why is whether you've eaten or not relevant to OP's question or thread? Please don't attack OP for what is a genuine question about his offer. It doesn't come off bragging at all.

    Pretty good offer, but negotiate more for sure.

    This is probably the top end L4 offer I've seen these days. Any more and you're roughly hitting bottom L5 territory. You're better off trying to increase sign on than any of the other factors.

    Congrats and hope things work out for you :)

    Given that the annual equity is vested over 3 years, the cash you can get access to is limited in the first two years.

    Looks pretty good! For L4 I’d say that’s high

      I’m planning to ask for a bigger bonus. Do you think I could get more equity too?

    Data point: I had the exact same offer as you a month ago with 2yoe
    But I got 50k sign on and my base was 151.5

    Good offer. Stock is $49 based on 72B valuation so looking good

      No. The internal valuation (409a) is still 60B I believe.

      At Gusto it’s L3, but I don’t think our levels map to Uber’s. Basically my currently level is above average for my YOE

  • Always ask for more stock than sign on or base

      Any reason? Recruiter made it sound like sign on would be easier to move.

    Does anyone know what market compensation percentile Uber pays these days? For example, twitter matches 75%ile (another way of looking at the compensation).
