Newly created one-off L7
Was contacted direct by a google recruiter who told me that the specific team for this position had seen my LinkedIn profile and was very interested in me (they hadn’t even seen my resume when they offered me an interview) The position requires two different worlds of experience and degrees which I have and is pretty rare.
I was so surprised at first because I live nowhere near CA and I honestly thought it was a hoax of some kind. I even told the recruiter that I would only consider a long distance commute with 4 day office weeks and not a formal move. Then I was told that they were struggling finding the right person and my situation was not ideal but they would accept it if I passed HC. Also told that I could relocate the job back home (close to where I live now) after 12-18 months.
When I learned the range of TC I almost fell out of my chair because no one (even the owner of my company) around here makes that much. (425-550 TC). I could work my whole life where I am and not make 1/2 that in a year - granted is not very expensive to live where I do.
If I pass this 2nd interview, then it’s onsite. Recruiter acted like onsite is likely. Very few people have applied for the role as far as I can see.
The real question is do I really want this job? Cross-country bi-weekly commute! Leaving my cushy partnership position in my hometown? Will Google really change my life that much??
Also - how cheap can I live in Sunnyvale/MV to make the huge change worth it in savings/nest egg for my future?
and ps ..... is this recruiter trying to sell me a load of $&@! I really can’t formally move to CA.
Thanks for the long read and any response!
Did google clarify and indicate that it’s a l7 ?
