Software Engineer salaries in 2018, tech levels, and lifestyle


#103

No. Should I?


#104

I think so…


#105

L6 buying a 3.5M house? Maybe L6 has a wide pay range


#106

Well his wife is probably around the same level, hence the $3.5M house.


#107

Very rare for that to happen. Rich guys marry bimbos. So no need to get jealous here :slight_smile:


#108

Your plan?


#109

I’m not rich enough to be at that level :rofl:


#110

Not jealous at all. If T is paid well he probably deserves it. If he twiddles his thumbs all day then that’s another story.


#111

He does triddle his thumbs quite a bit I think


#112

I think his wife works at YT so she is likely to have comparable pay as well.


#113

How much does L7 make?


#114

How did you figure out? I did not hear anything about YT. I think he is the single income


#115

You guys gotta be more observant. Geez…can’t tell you all my tips and tricks.


#116

I remember he said he’s the sole breadwinner, the wife does not work or work for fun


#117

T’s wife works. Not sure where. But if @harriet says so then yes case closed.


#118

Why you ask me? Do I look like I know?


#119

Yoda already updated the table above to include L7-L8.


#120

OK just checked not jealous.


#121

Gross $600k at point of allocating the RSUs. The pay is designed so that it is high enough to make most of them unwilling to start a business and low enough not to add too much to the expenses. However, nowadays, if your skill is pretty rare, is common for another big companies to poach you by offering 50%-100% jump in pay including vesting your RSUs :slight_smile: usually with a promotion. If tomato is that good, it won’t be long that his pay would double or triple, above $1M :slight_smile:

My wife is not a bimbo for sure :slight_smile:
