Don’t have a masters, and worked at FAANG. Portfolio, skills, and experiences is what is important, and I would say in that respective order as well.

I have numerous contacts at FAANGs and Masters is not impressive by itself, no matter where it’s from. It might be interesting if you had a tangential study area like Comp Sci or Symbology or Psychology. Regardless bringing work and portfolio similar to what is required for the role is your slam dunk.

Could just be the people with the grit to get a Master's also have the grit to get into FAANG.
