The senior vice president of engineering raked in $10.3 million last year, just behind Twitter Chief Executive Dick Costolo‘s $11.5 million, according to Twitter’s IPO documents. That is more than the paychecks of executives such as Chief Technology Officer Adam Messinger, Chief Financial Officer Mike Gupta and Chief Operating Officer Ali Rowghani.
“The number of A-players in Silicon Valley hasn’t grown,” said Iain Grant, a recruiter at Riviera Partners, which specializes in placing engineers at venture-capital backed start-ups. “But the demand for them has gone through the roof.”
Stories abound about the lengths to which employers will go to attract engineering talent – in addition to the free cafeterias, laundry services and shuttle buses that the Googles and Facebooks of the world are already famous for.

(Reuters) - Brazil is investigating Google Inc for anticompetitive practices alleged by Microsoft Corp and Brazilian rivals, adding to government pressure in one of Google’s fastest-growing major markets.
Brazilian antitrust watchdog Cade said on Friday it is looking into accusations that Google has unfairly used rivals’ content, discouraged their advertisers and favored its own product listings in search results.
A Google spokeswoman in Sao Paulo said in an email that the company would cooperate with Brazilian regulators.
Microsoft filed a complaint charging Google with obstructing advertising campaigns across multiple search engines to give an unfair advantage to its highly profitable AdWords service, according to a Cade statement. AdWords is Google’s main source of advertising dollars, which make up 95 percent of revenue.
Brazilian comparison shopping sites Buscapé and Bondfardo also accused Google of reproducing product reviews from their users, a practice known as “scraping,” without allowing the competitors to do the same with its website Google Shopping.
