Snap tc

Jan 14 14 Comments

Hi blind friends,

A snap internal recruiter reached out about Android infra @snap. Any word on high-end tc for snap L4/L5 in this specialization? Haven't interviewed anywhere yet, but fairly confident can I get at least a few BigN offers from fb, g, ms...

Android infra swe at Airbnb. Optimistic about stock growth and IPO. Very happy here, but curious about the market.

Have some OSS contributions, some conference talks, 5 yoe, 450k tc.

      Have interviewed so many mobile engineers, and you’re right that mobile infra is insanely hard to come by. Usually only larger companies will recognize it and care, but when they do it’s highly valued.

      Ya. A high L4 offer can put you over 500k (4 year avg incl refreshers). A standard L5 can get you 650k.

    Get L5 if you can. l4 is not worth for the move. The main reason is that in snap M1 is equal to L6 so you have to promote twice to be able to transfer to management track while on other companies like fb you can be m1 when you are E6.

      Why do people care so much about the "manager track"? Twice the work, half the fun, same pay.

    Compensation is fixed by level at snap. So all L5s for example have the same base and new hire equity grant. We don’t have “high” or “low” offers. In the past snap gave out sign ons but given how strong equity is pacing they prob don’t

      Are you saying they don’t negotiate on the equity package at all?
