Data scientist Facebook TC

Dec 1, 2019 14 Comments

I have read in another thread that some people were saying the data scientist TC at Facebook is low compared to SWE. Can anyone confirm? Is it lower than what shows up on levels.fyi?
for info:
E4: 245K
E5: 365K

If lower, what are the average numbers for E4 and E5?

thanks

      Base tends to be similar across the two families, but equity tends to be only 50-60% of SWE equity.

      So this seems to show also people who wrote « ML/AI » which might be machine learning engineers, and I know their pay is the same as SWE

      Also, not sure if core data science team (more researchy) and infrastructure data science also get paid lower

      Yea that's harder to parse, but I think it depends on education/function. But you're right if it's an ML role in core DS, then it'll be more in the SWR range.

      What about the data science infrastructure team or core data science (which is more researchy)?

    Facebook data science is a generic term for a lot of different teams, it's a mess. TC varies from same as SWE to less than half.

      I see... How should I bring up these with the recruiter who contacted me without sounding too greedy? I don’t wanna waste my time and their time applying to a job that pays less than my current one...

      If you're currently and Eng, chances are the recruiter is talking to you about data science role that pays the same as Eng. You can always clarify matters "Hey I'm an engineer here, want to understand how/where this role fits into the fb org". That should tell you all you need to know.

      No I’m a DS at Microsoft but here DS is not data analyst, hence the confusion

      There's also a data analyst role at FB - the pay is considerably lower. Are all data scientists at Microsoft paid the same as engineers?

      « Data scientists » yes, but « business analyst » or business intelligence or something like that is paid less.
