Does Alibaba have a good campus in Bay area? How does their cloud stack against the competition?

    Don’t work for alibaba. They seem to have open age discrimination. Every time Gollum, I mean Jack Ma, talks about his employees he keeps lamenting how young they are.

    Alibaba cloud is mostly in Bellevue, drop me a PM if you are interested. There are many interesting work here. We are comparable with the big 3 in the US.

    Below AWS, but comparable to Azure and google cloud. Great pay, but lots of overtime and travels.

      Hmmm... My experience is different.
      I mean even in microsoft and Google I've observed that Chinese folks start talking to each other in Chinese even when others are around. So others get excluded from conversations and learnings. This bad experience makes me very unwilling to go to any team more than 50% Chinese. Just not good for mental peace and growth.

    OP
    Also I was wondering how Alibaba's cloud compare against OCI? Who is their customer base?
    I always thought Amazon is leader, Azure for enterprise cloud and Oracle is just moving its own customer base. Where does Alibaba's customers come from?

      Ali ☁️ is way better than OCI. The customers come from everywhere in the world. It's a truly general purpose cloud.
