Hello , I have an offer from wayfair for senior software engineer in Boston . How is wayfair ? My new tc will be 144k . Is it a lowball offer ?
1) Currently I use c++ at work . The tech stack in my new team at wayfair is c# , php, .net . My concern is the tech stack old ?
2) And my current company has filed my perm and am waiting for the approval .. Looks like Wayfair policy minimum wait time is 6 months and the rating shud exceed expectations .
Should I jump to wayfair at this time . I still have 2.5 yrs of h1b . Have been leetcoding for a while . I was not asked any coding question during interview . It was all design and behavioral .
TC 120——> 144(3.5 yrs exp)
No coding, only system design, and a Senior Eng title? That's a little scary.
I can’t really recommend Wayfair as a place to come and learn new things. I know of teams that write nothing but SQL Server stored procedures. I know of tech leads who aren't approved code reviewers for anything but SQL.
It's not a technology company. The internal tools are terrible and there's a strong and destructive bias towards building their own tools rather than using what already exists. The chief architect "doesn't believe in" microservices. If you have any other prospects, I'd explore them over Wayfair.
