Grab Senior Data Engineer Singapore

Dec 1, 2019 40 Comments

Base - S$113000
Bonus - 15%
RSU - US $ 18000
Level offered - Grab level 4

I am currently making US$ 160000 per year including rsu living in Colorado, USA. I have 4.5+ years work experience with a Masters degree from US university.

Is this a good offer?

Also, off late I have seen a lot of negative reviews about grab on glassdoor. Can anyone from the company comment on how the environment is working at Grab. It would be great to talk from Grab data science team to know more about the teams in private chat.

      My parents are in India and if I could get a comparable offer, then it would be good to move closer to my parents.

    Are those RSUs for 1 year or over 4 years? If it's 1 year (so actually you'll get $72000 over 4 years), it's a good offer for a level 4 (I mean Grab won't give you a better one unless you are hired as a level 5). Otherwise negotiate more shares!

    This feels low, but seems to be a step up from your current situation. Congrats!

      The rent is quite high in singapore. That makes up for lower tax rate. Also, my current salary is in Colorado where the cost of living is much cheaper than bay area or Singapore. So, I am not sure if this is a step up from my current situation.

    Don’t take anything less than 144 base so you can apply for transition from EP to PEP. Keep in mind cost of living in Singapore is 10-15% higher

      @oracle pretty much. Unless you see yourself working at the same employer for the duration you’re in Singapore, PEP is favorable for switching jobs.

    Offer looks “ok” for G4, but are they provided you absolute count of RSU? Because they probably calculated cost in the strange way. Recently left Grab Singapore(my base was a bit higher on G4) and I don’t think that grab is a good choice

      It really depends, green/red mrt lines are overcrowded. Buses are ok, but only if it is express bus. If it is regular bus and you leave on east cost it may take 30-50 minutes(or even more).
