I just completed an onsite loop at Amazon, and was contacted a few hours after I left the building with an email (and phone call that I missed) saying they were moving ahead with an offer. I know there are a lot of threads asking for TPM compensation, but I thought I'd toss out another since I am seeing a pretty wide range (180-250k). The position is for a Senior TPM in Seattle. I have ~8 years of experience managing large technical projects (most of those are not software related and the role is with Prime working with software teams) and a little over 20 years of general leadership and smaller programs. I also hold a masters in data science, engineering management, and a PMP.
How low does the Senior TPM band go? The levels are not posted, so I am hoping it's not an L5 position.
If I was contacted the same day, does that mean I did well at the interview, or that the team was just efficient? Or both? (I know this is a subjective question, but interested in any thoughts)
Would 225k TC be a fair starting point?
Have a phone call on Monday to discuss compensation with the recruiter so I suppose I could just wait, but was hoping to get a good, fair starting point that didn't offend the hiring manager.
And for those that are interested, the people that I spoke with during the onsite were amazing, super chill, and very motivated. They all said they had great work life balance, and everyone I saw in the building was smiling and enthusiastic. I know this is only a quick snapshot, but the experience really made me want to be part of the team.
- Amazon amazeseaSenior TPM is Level 6. The band goes upto 280k. 210k would be lower end. The debrief happens within 5 days. In your case they might had the debrief planned same day. I would ask at the top of the band (>260k)! All the best.
