working in tech and moving back down southeast.

So i start as an SDE 1 at Amazon Seattle in a few weeks. I am married right now and eventually want to move back down southeast where family is (Alabama), and raise kids there eventually. I was wondering what you all might know about good companies with similar TC in and around that area, or the closest to it adjusted for COL of course.

I am just getting into the tech industry switching from biopharm (chemical engineering) so i am pretty ignorant of my possibilities.

This is several years down the road.

TC 150k

    Not sure about Alabama, but you could make a similar TC on a col-adjusted basis in Atlanta for sure. Several companies paying $200k+ for mid-senior engineers down there now.

    As someone from the Southeast, good luck getting that TC around there. You could maybe find something in Huntsville that would come close, or possibly Atlanta, but it would be a stretch.

      Doesn’t have to be exactly the same TC just enough to keep up a similar QOL

    Work few years at Amazon, earn your keep, get promotion. Then transfer to an office in South East. Alabama isn’t likely, but we have an office in Nashville. They do last mile delivery and fulfillment tech there.

      Consider Europe. If you are young and don’t have kids, a year or two in London or Amsterdam might be a lifetime experience.

      I’ve thought about it, but I’m not sure that’s the thing for me. I hate being so far from family, I’m a big family boy and Seattle is far enough haha
