Annoyed by all the repeated questions about offers on Blind, I went to collate the numbers from the posts I see on Reddit and Blind.

I update this list as and when I see compensation discussions on Blind. If you would like to contribute data, please comment and I will update accordingly.

      Hey guys
      1. Not an ML role, Android eng, 8 years of experience
      2. Tips - make sure you have good negotiating offers. Uber, Airbnb, Lyft and similar unicorns are your best bet since they offer outrageous shares (even though its air money). Also read “how to not bomb your offer negotiation” part 1 and 2. Super helpful.
      3. Yes 800 is for 4 years, 200 per year.

      Amazon’s bass cap is higher for Bay Area. It’s at 180 for Bay Area and Seattle is 160.
