Hi Jamin, It's probably fine to ask this if they haven't mentioned in on the job posting. However, if you understandably feel awkward doing so, I would recommend checking out Glass Door for average salaries for the position. This might give you a better idea :) cheers for reading.

There's a reason why it's called a Beta ... or Release Candidate, but yeah, go blender community!

Amazon Lays Off Game Developers
16 June, 2019
News

Amazon Game Studios has reportedly laid off dozens of employees on the last day of E3, Kotaku states. The company told a number of their employees they only have 60 days to find new positions within Amazon. If they fail to do so, they’ll have to leave the team with a severance package. What is more, the company has also canceled some of the games.

Are you waiting for New World and Crucible? Don’t worry: Amazon told Kotaku that they’re still working on these projects. The company states that the layoffs were part of a reorganization to prioritize the development of those two titles, plus some new unannounced projects.

“Amazon Game Studios is reorganizing some of our teams to allow us to prioritize development of New World, Crucible, and new unannounced projects we’re excited to reveal in the future. These moves are the result of regular business planning cycles where we align resources to match evolving, long-range priorities,” told the company’s representative. “We’re working closely with all employees affected by these changes to assist them in finding new roles within Amazon. Amazon is deeply committed to games and continues to invest heavily in Amazon Game Studios, Twitch, Twitch Prime, AWS, our retail businesses, and other areas within Amazon.”

You can learn more about the story in an article by Kotaku.
