Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

  1. Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Instructure (United States) in Jul 2022


    The interview process was smooth, I had a great rapport with the team members I met.

    Throughout the Principal Software Engineer interviews, they kept checking in and mentioning both title and salary range of 220K to 235K with similar RSUs.

    But things shifted when they started talking about the offer.

    Once I finished the 5 rounds, they came with both a title drop (to Senior Engineer) and a proposed salary of 180K, 10K bonus, and 100K RSUs. During that conversation they walked that up to 185K, 20K bonus, and 120K RSUs…and said they'd take that to HR to see if they could do that. The next day they called and said the offer was 170K, 10K bonus, and 60K RSUs.

    Each of those conversations were the numbers they gave, and during those conversations, they dropped the total compensation package by about 40%.

    After receiving the final offer, I talked with their HR department in an effort to help them debug their hiring process.

    One question was: Write a function that can take 1000 and return "1,000". Another was to take a data stream of events and write the average time for a transaction completion. There was some white boarding exercises around file uploads and pub/sub handling. There were other technical interview questions.
