Looking for a switch

Jan 25, 2018 9 Comments

I have been working with Amazon (retail and AWS) for a long time (half a decade) as SDE. I want to switch to a different company to learn new technologies and grow in career. What all good companies with same/better compensation exists in Seattle and how to start preparing for interviews?

My current TC is 200K.

    You can buy switches from Amazon. I'm sure you can find hundreds of different types of switches on Amazon

    5 years at Amazon and you are making 200k? That.... doesn't compute. Have you managed to stay an sde1? Stock appreciation alone should have you close to that.

      Five years is past the initial grant, and plenty of people I know have hit that in the last two years and received effective pay cuts as a result of losing those initial grants and not getting replenished at nearly the same amount.

    I recommend trying for one of the many teams at Amazon doing AI/ML. Lots of good work going on there.

    Why not move internally? Also why is your current knowledge not good enough if u have worked in aws?
