at first job, looking to make switch because i dream of more than 🥜
- Nextdoor / Eng fSMb86Not underpaid at all... when I had two years of experience I was making 76k
- priceline.com / IT top_phoduIMHO one should not run for TC for the first 5 yrs of the career.. but focus more on learning and getting into good projects, teams and look for good mentors... Learn the skills of the trade, good TC is a byproduct that will eventually find you.
- 120k... 😗 Weird flex but okay.
I don't understand the abbreviations. I don't now what TC stands for. Tech Consultant?
- Wait, you're on Schonfeld's core infra team? The fund itself is doing well do you at least get to invest? I was looking for investment team openings there.
Not sure how helpful this is, but I think Exoduspoint and Point72 pay better on the core infra side. If you're really great with low latency obviously try HFT.
- I think if you're in NYC, the correct thing to do is hustle a bit harder and try to get high TC in a quant finance shop. 2 YOE is a little tough but you have domain knowledge that's hopefully worth something. HFT core dev and big hedge fund dev pay has gotten really good in the last few years, because more places are realizing how important good infra is and competing with FANG pay.
Leave the rest and vest or startup monopoly money grind for SF, this is the city where you have the chance to make high cash comp.
