Hi I have around 15+ years of experience in several MNC in storage and database and startup. Have two offers : Amazon L5 offer at 280k TC and another at series B machine learning startup much lower TC but big percentage of the company. Don’t feel like negotiating with the Amazon offer: am not interested in talking when some does so much of low leveling. The AI startup going big is a matter of luck but chances are there. Also don’t have to deal with hierarchy of managers in Amazon. What do people feel?
Startup, especially if you’ve got a good enough rain fund. Amazon seems extremely low for a engineer of your tenure.
