Whats the comp for principal solution engineer?

I think it would be around 200-275k excluding RSU

Yes, but they are usually hours spent customer facing and then each team has a different time metrics. It’s usually nothing crazy

Me too happy to share the differences.

Team, made through 4 rounds of interviews with SF. Next round is presentation to a panel (same folks I talked in the previous rounds). How much weight does the presentation play in deciding whether they will hire me. Background: I am also almost certain I am the only candidate given the position has been open since feb and difficult requirement to fill (multilingual requirement). Any help is welcome.

Panel presentations are mostly used to gauge what soft skills you already have and what they’ll need for coach you on. They can tech you product but they’re really testing you on the ability to present to an exec team. It totally depends on the time but if you’re customer facing this is usually a deciding factor, not everyone makes it to a panel so this is good! Goodluck!
