This question already has an answer here:
I just started the interview process with a large corporation and after spending 20 minutes on the phone with the HR recruiter we both thought I was a good fit for the position and I have a phone interview scheduled with the hiring manager tomorrow.
One issue that just occurred to me after reading the job description carefully is that the position is for Software engineer III and not senior software engineer. I am currently at a principal level . (not software). I would be whiling to step back one level but not 2 levels.
Do I bring up this issue now or work with them through the point that I get an offer (if I am a good fit for the position) and then negotiate the title with them?
