I am thinking about going for a lead SE at Salesforce. 6 months paternity(correct me If am wrong) sounds AMAZING and think SE job seems to match with my interest and career ambition.

I have admin and consulting background with a bit over 3 years of exp.

Questions
1. Is getting 150k base as a lead SE possible?
2. What do you all recommend I do to get that role? (certs, network etc)?

Could potentially get 150 as a base. Comp is 70/30, so that’d be an OTE of ~215.

You’re only going to get that base if you’re in. T1 geo like SF or NYC. Lead SE also requires at least 5 years customer facing SF experience. I’d shoot for Senior SE and set your expectations to around 120k base. Also, we’re in a hiring freeze atm.

like

Any word on when that freeze will lift?

I think that’s a little high for a lead base depending on geo, but you can likely get RSUs. YoE is probably more suited for senior?

Agreed with this. Will be very very hard to get lead with 3 YOE.

Also, RSUs will only be given at hire for Leads and up.

Referral is 100% the way you need to start. Without one you’ll really struggle to get through the first rounds
