Need help in evaluating these offers. I haven't gotten official numbers but recruiter told this is what I looking at. Both offers are for SF office.
Uber: L4 140-145k base, ~240k in stocks (vested over 4 years) and they can try for bonus. There would be annual bonus but not sure how much. Recruiter mentioned that annual tc would be around 240k with bonus.
Coinbase: IC4 160k base, 200k in options (vested over 4 years). They can try for bonus for around 15k. No annual bonus. TC 210k (160k till it goes IPO)
Is there any room for negotiation?
Next year TC at PayPal would be 165-180K based on stock appreciation.
YoE: 6 total (3 in US)
Third option would wait till March next year and then I try again for other companies. I have already interviewed at Google, Amazon, Airbnb, Square.
I can see potential with coinbase but they still haven’t solved the problem of making crypto currency practical, and I don’t see a killer use case for blockchain other than money. They could figure it out but I think it’s too risky. Also where’s the moat?
