    I definitely wouldn't take it. Doordash has few customers outside the Bay. In NYC, I've never met anyone who has used it and many haven't heard of it.

    Imo this is a no brainer. Given that you have good liquid comp from a global household brand, never take illiquid comp from a brand no one has heard of outside of the SF Bay Area. I'd say this even if they exceeded your Uber comp.

      Lol come out from the rock you've been living under. Doordash is both the largest and fastest growing company in the space in US/Canada. The so called Googles and Facebooks and Ubers who don't offer paper money anymore were once private companies. The ones who took the risk and joined then have been rewarded handsomely. Not to say that DoorDash is guaranteed to succeed, at the end of the day, the question is how much risk you want to take for rewards.

      Sure. It's easy to show high annual growth numbers when you grow from a few thousand users to a few tens or hundreds of thousands. But who cares? Grubhub still dominates. DoorDash has few of any users outside the Bay, but Grubhub is a household brand in several coastal cities (thanks largely to subsidiaries)

    Don't work for DoorDash. At least Uber doesn't steal tips from their drivers.

    That’s less than you’re currently making. Why switch?

      Maybe because he's not getting a high enough refresher to maintain that TC

    Have you negotiated yet? You should be able to do better than 250k base from what I've heard from recruiting in the past. That said, I would only take it if you're a "builder" - a lot of our systems are currently in the process of being reworked to scale, so there will be the usual growing pains there. If you're prepared to deal with that, then it's an exciting place to work and I would recommend it to you.

    I would take it. The 600k could be worth 2 to 3 mil when it goes public? What do you think?

      It could be a risk someone is willing to take.

      Sure but if the RSUs are fairly priced, expected value is lower than current TC. Nobody is stopping people from gambling, you can take the risk, it’s just not a good financial decision

    How does the DoorDash growth look like? This blog show 300% annual growth.

    We grew to 26.5% market share and our business accelerated from over 250 percent year-over-year growth, at the time of our last financing, to 325 percent this year, cementing our positioning as the fastest growing last-mile logistics company, according to Second Measure
