I am a SWE with 8yoe, in the Bay, and am getting very bored of my current job, so looking for a change.
I am generally interested in infra stuff, both low level (networking, kernel, ...) as well as higher level (distributed systems, databases, ...).
The things I value, in order, are:
- Interesting work (ideally a mix of SWE/SRE since again, I like infra)
- Competitive TC (I'd like to push for ~400k this time)
- Experienced coworkers from whom I can learn, willing to teach
- If possible, reasonable working hours (I'm ok to be in the ~45-50h/week on average, with occasional sprints up to 60 maybe)
I currently interviewed at FB and got offers at E5 for both Production Engineer and SWE (yes, I did two interviews), but I thought I'd check on Blind to see if there are any suggestions I might not be considering, since I'm not in a rush.
Not making it a poll because I'm not sure of the options (that's why I'm asking).
Current TC: 350k
I think u should try to climb up to M1 given your existing tc is already high, not worth for another swe role.
My two cents.
