Facebook DE -> SWE

I recently accepted a Data Engineer, Analytics new grad position at Facebook. Joining is in June 2020. Can I ask my recruiter to consider me for SWE instead? If yes, will I have to go through the entire loop again or just the on-site?
If I get rejected for SWE position, can I keep the original Data Engineer offer?

Reason for DE -> SWE :

I would have preferred a DE at FB rather than SWE at a non-FAANG. I just got a SDE offer from Amazon so willing to take the risk of re-interviewing at FB for SWE role.

Edit :

Facebook DE Offer (Menlo Park):

Base : 120k
Sign-on : 20k
Stocks : 100k/4
Performance bonus : 10%

Amazon SDE offer (SF):

Base : 128k
Sign-on : 30k first year/26k second year
Stocks : 95k/4
Relocation : 6.8k

    iirc you have to stay for a year then you can reinterview for SWE (I had this same exact experience)

      Some are saying that I'll be treated same as an external candidate if I wish to switch. Have you switched internally or know anyone who has?
