Offer Letter

Hi everyone,


I got an offer from Amazon for SDE 1 after doing SDE 2 interviews. I really don't want to get stuck in SDE 1 for long but I am still happy I got the offer.


I was wondering what you guys think, how fast could I get promoted to SDE 2 after accepting this offer or should I just wait a couple months and do the entire process all over to attempt for SDE 2.


Any information or advice would help.

Thanks.

Unless you're *extremely* confident that you can deliver at *strong* SDE II level, you likely will be at SDE I for 1-2 years before promo. If that's OK with you then take it. If not, then wait 6mo and apply again. Just keep in mind if you don't make SDE II at that point it was probably better to just take SDE I right now.
