Got a SDE2 offer from Amazon Canada, how much should I ask for? How about 220K CAD per year? What's the highest pay you've heard? Thank you all very much.

      How about total package?

    • ^^ how does this make sense? If you fall in 30% tax bracket you only pay 30% for the income in that bracket.

      When you go into a higher tax bracket you pay more taxes on the extra income not your entire income. Anytime you make more money and go into a new tax bracket you'll always make more post tax.

      What the heck. In this thread SWEs that don’t understand how progressive taxes work...

      Yeah but Canada does, so your whole point is irrelevant.

    I interviewed at Amazon for SDE3 in NYC, and they offered me SDE2 with 300k TC. I tried pushing for 350k but they declined it. I imagine pay in Canada would be less

      SDE2 in NYC can reach 300K? That's high!

      They wanted to hire me as a "high" sde2 with the chance to get promoted within a year, but seemed like bs. My current TC was 300k so I guess they wanted to match

    Anywhere between a loonie and a toonie.

    I'm in the similar situation as you, but I have only 4 yoe. I really don't know what to ask for, since some experiences say 140k CAD tc is normal in Canada, and some say you can easily go for 200k.

      130k is the new grad offer now days. theres no way 140k can be a viable sde 2 offer now.

    What was your experience interviewing for Amazon in Canada?

    Any different from Amazon US?
