In what circumstances is it worth taking a position that's lower than your current title?

Possibly you care more about your passion than title or salary? There is a lot of value in being happy and feeling good about your work. 🤷‍♀️

Agree with above, titles don’t pay your bills. Presumably you’re working for $ so who cares what they call you as long as they pay you

Toxic work environment- eventually that will do more damage to you and your career then a step down transfer
If you are moving to a more exciting field, with greater growth potential.
And yeah- money ( as others have said)- that’s what pays your bills, not prestige

Typically people will make such a move if they're given significantly higher compensation (this could be reflected in substantial equity for an earlier stage company), or higher growth opportunities. Sometimes, at smaller companies, titles don't really mean as much as it's all relative - if everyone is a software engineer, then there's no typical title hierarchy. But make sure you can justify the decision - if you're making a "lateral" move with a lower title, it's probably not worth it

Money.

That is based entirely on your personal priorities and constraints.

About to do this myself. Mainly for impact, ability to learn, and total comp. All 3 are lacking and fall well short of my expectations where I currently am. Interestingly enough, most EM TC at places I have final rounds are competitive to if not greater than my current TC.

My RSUs vested on 11/20/21 which is a Saturday. The sale of shares for tax withholding by eTrade didn't happen until 11/24/21.
Should the fair market value upon which these RSUs are valued for tax purposes be on Friday 11/19/21, i.e. prior to the vest date of 11/20/21 ($88.75/share) or the Monday 11/22/21 ($83.20/share)?

I ask because eTrade has withheld tax based on the 11/19/21 price of $88.75 vs. what I would have expected/wanted (haha) of the price on 11/22/21 of $83.20.
