    Check levels.fyi if you haven't already.
    It's basically Manager/Sr. Manager.
    I'd say 200k-250k. How many YOE do you have?

      One rule of thumb when negotiating: never give the first number.

      ^ ^ ^ THIS.
      You don't even really need to check glassdoor

      The best negotiation strategy is supposedly to not give any hint of any numbers at all and just get the recruiter to give "their typical offer" or some shit like that

    What’s the lead software engineer? I only saw master software engineer in levels.fyi. Are they same? If so, seems 200k for in CA and might be 180k at most in VA.

      Well, I guess that means you were expecting a lot of equity, right? lol
      If you get an offer, just ask for more.

      Even if you said "80k", you can just say "80k's no good anymore. Now I want 160k"
