Best Companies for Front End (Web) Career?

Mar 2 8 Comments

Many of the top companies value back end (and some, mobile) engineering more than web front end engineering, especially when consumer patterns heavily favor mobile development these days. Facebook, Google, Amazon, Lyft, Uber are examples of such companies. At higher levels, it's so much harder to find impactful web front end projects to work on.

Any advice on how to continue pursuing a career in web front end? What are the best companies in this domain? Considering moving to Airbnb or Netflix next.

      The react team isn't that big. Facebook having react doesn't mean its good to work on frontend at Facebook and that you'll be rewarded for frontend work.

  • Who would want to work on Angular? Definitely not! And definitely not google! Google doesn’t even have a good ux team. Most front end people are robots at google who only enjoy leetcoding.

    Have been turning down all companies w Angular as their tech stack.
