Rank the following companies with a NYC HQ:

Bloomberg (private, high base and bonus)
Etsy (IPO'd, cool office and product)
Flatiron Health (acquired, strong engineering talent)
Foursquare (private, interesting data problems with IPO potential)

And which ones would you want to work for, if TC was right? (see poll, choose all that apply)

      Lol that's an old perception. My last 2 teams were exclusively python

      Most of calcrt still fortran. Agreed that most teams have moved on but core infra is still old and creaky.

      Your profile says that you previously worked for Google, so I was asking why you switched to Bloomberg...

      Foursquare pivoted from b2c to b2b (see enterprise.foursquare.com and developer.foursquare.com) in the past 2 years, and is doing way better than it did before.
