Any L5/L6 engineers at Qualtrics from FANGs?

Jul 24, 2019 22 Comments

Any former FANGers at Qualtrics at Senior or Staff SDE levels?
If yes, why did you guys left FANG for Qualtrics? I can see why would Amazonians leave, but not Facebook or Google guys.
Thanks!

    Jared Smith, one of the founders and then CTO(?), moved from Google.

    • Amazon who?!
      Jared is exception. If you read the story he didn’t want to join. Also, at his level and wealth who cares.

    There's a bunch of former Amazon and Microsoft people. Haven't seen any F or G folks. Although I know some non technical people from F.

      Zig Serafin and Julie Larsen both were svp in Microsoft.

      Qualtrics is scrappy- move fast / break things. Amazon Sr PEs won’t fit in this environment. Once it need to scale, then they might hire more PEs.

      Yeah, the only difference with FB move fast approach is that eng bar and code quality is much much better at FB than at Q. Btw, Amazon doesn’t move slow either. They just think long term with bias for action. Amazon is not Google either.

      I did. Found a couple of former Googlers and Amazonians. There still might be some who didn’t update their LI.

    I am not sure about qualtrics but going from any big company to a smaller one is a big boost in terms of title and TC if you are director/principal level or equivalent. That's how big money is made as you usually get super high equity in those moves.

    I'm not from fb, amzn, or google but I interviewed at both fb and AMZN and still chose Qualtrics because the culture and WLB seemed a lot more my cup of tea and the pay was pretty comparable.

      So Q gave you 400k TC as L5? Since FB E5 offers are in range of 350-400. As I heard Q L5 are not at that range but much lower. What was your previous company?
