      Some companies inflate titles. The 114k is in CAD?

      Lol
      Vancouver salaries are some of the worst in the whole tech industry while Vancouver itself is one of the most expensive cities.

      PMTS.

      I negotiated a little at the offer stage and got a signing bonus and bump in base.

      My current base is a mix of a promotion and merit raises.

      Stock vesting is because I now have multiple rolling RSU refreshes.

      I didn’t get a refresh in my first year, but I have gotten one every year since.

      I am told that isn’t super common (and people grumble about it on Blind etc), but it also depends on your level, performance, impact etc.

    Some data points from Vancouver:

    Microsoft Senior pays ~$180k CAD TC
    Amazon SDE3 pays ~$200k CAD TC.

    FB pays same in Vancouver as US but converts base to CAD. FB only hires visa rejects and keeps SWEs for 1 year and then relocate them to US.

      Great. Thanks for the numbers. I wouldn't count Fb as their presence in Vancouver is very little and mostly sales staff with some existing engineers maybe and no new hiring being done.
