Wayfair Offer Evaluation

Sep 19, 2019 13 Comments

I got an Offer from WayFair to join their Finance Application Engineering team

Here are the offer details:
Role:Software Engineer II
Location : Boston
Base Salary : 125K
RSUs : 500 (4 Yr)
Joining Bonus : 10K

I have 2.5 YOE

I wanted to know if there is any Wiggle Room on the base salary, I was trying for around 135K but the recruiter said thats not going to happen.

Can someone please help me here? I have a Google onsite scheduled in 3 weeks but I need to revert back to Wayfair in one week.

    Looks good on the stock, but I think that's median for cash. $135k should be possible, I think. HUGE Disclaimer: My info is about a year old.

      According to what I have, it should be, but they may have changed things as well.

      According to h1bsalary, you should be able to ask for 135k.

      Tell the Wayfair recruiters that you won't decide until after Google's offer unless Wayfair makes an offer you can't refuse.

    Which location?

    What is finance engineering? Are you a software engineer - do you build distributed systems? What will be your role?
