how is the pay for sde-2 position in amazon london? does it vary by team? i am interested in prime video team if that matters.

asking here because Glassdoor figures look little low.

    Base £60-£70k for SDE2. Amazon doesn’t pay well in London. It doesn’t depend on team.

      I have feeling that target total compensation is around £80k. First two years TC consists of base + signon bonus, next two years RSU replaces signon bonus. However, some sde2 joined more than 2 years ago have much higher TC because of stock growth

    I am at ~100k GBP, and I'm pretty sure that's top of the L5 scale.
    That's Target Comp, it doesn't include stock appreciation.

      Wow, i’ve never seen SDE2 in London with such total compensation excluding rsu. What is your base?

    • Is that decent for London standards or low?

      This is slightly above an average for SDE in respectable company.
