I did go through the interview process Pre Covid and even though Interviews went well, when the Partner learnt I need Visa, they backed off and asked to come back when I get the Permanent residency. Also, pay wise its pretty much 30-40% lower then US salaries.

Fun fact for those that are lending USDC stablecoins: apparently, one of the perks of the new BlockFi rewards credit card is that they add 2% to your yield. 7.5% + 2% = 9.5% interest Let's hope their engagement with the state of New Jersey goes well.
