Amazon offer

Nov 15, 2019 20 Comments

Hi guys,

I got the following offer for SDE2/Bay Area/3yoe:

- Base 175
- Bonus 97/71 (y1/y2)
- 115 RSU over 4years (5/15/40/40)

Estimated annual TC 275

Does that sound like a good offer from Amazon? For the same yoe I saw higher offers on levels.fyi in Seattle where col is lower; I tried to negociate with a competing offer at a startup but it didn't change things a lot (an additional 5k for year 1 -> 280).

Thanks for your input!

    Holy shit, why do people ask about their fucking offer by only giving numbers?

    We need Title Level City Yoe and TC all together. People are so inconsiderate when asking questions 🤦‍♂️

      Exactly. If people want to show off their offer, they should at least do the diligence and make our life easier to admire what we don't have.

    That's a great offer for only 3 YOE. Take it and run to the bank!
    In 2 years, shop yourself around again and aim for 400TC.

    I don't think it's low, I think it's a huge amount of money 😅 But that's not the point, I discovered Blind recently and realized I have been paid under market rate in my current job; I just want to make sure that this situation is not going to happen again

    Way too good for 3 YoE, even by Blind standards

    I feel it's a great offer for Amazon. Better than my Google L4. Wonder when Amazon started giving such good numbers

    If you think this is low, you are set for some rude awakening. Nobody’s gonna offer you more with that much experience, don’t like, don’t take it.
