Would you go to Snap from Google (both in NY)

Jan 22 37 Comments

Snap offer is the standard L5 offer. (around 500k+)

Currently L5 at Google doing ML.

It’s a decent TC bump, and Google team is boring.

TC: 425k

    I had a similar offer but when I talked to the team it seemed like I’d be using ML to predict what cartoon image would look best if added to a photo. Like an automatic “add a mustache” feature. This sounded so dumb, I couldn’t bring myself to take the job.

    There’s something wrong with our society where the guy who puts mustaches on cartoon images makes half a million dollars a year, so the rest of us are glued longer in front of our little screens like zombies. God help us all and our future generations. I can’t wait for this scam/sham tech bubble to burst.

      Well, I think we can safely say that we didn’t need Snapchat salaries to tell us there were issues in the social structure! The priorities there have been messed up for just about as long as one can think of!

    500K. Wth. Where does this magic money come from for Snapchat. How can this funny face crap be monetized?

    "Google team is boring" - this pretty much sums up my Google experience.

      Also worth noting that from there, it goes up quickly. Most high performing Snap L5 are making $1-2m after 1-2 years with refreshes and modest stock appreciation. But that assumes appreciation 😉
