Considering next moves but nothing stands out. The power centers were previously Google, then Facebook, then Uber. Where do folks think the next powerhouse is?

I’ve heard the following:
Instacart
Robinhood
Airbnb
Coinbase
Slack
Stripe

Does anyone think any others stand out? Thanks!

    Stripe seems to be attracting the best engineers I know

  • Uber hey sorry
    Airbnb, Robinhood and Instacart are good from that list. Also smaller but Plaid and Opendoor seem like good bets

      I’d be leery of a CFO that claims that past performance is indicative of future results.

      Social networks aren't doing so hot lately.

      The main reason is taking a promotion from CFO to CEO. Of course she believes in nextdoor as well

      95% of everything you do facebook does. But keep up the enthusiasm it's good to be passionate about your work.

      Isn’t cruise owned by GM?

      SoftBank has a 19.5% stake and Honda has a 5.5% stake. So not wholly owned but majority shareholder. Cruise has separate class of shares not tied to GM stock

      I was recently approached by a Cruise recruiter. Got a call tomorrow. What’s so special about it?

      Cruise is #3 most successful Y-Combinator company (Airbnb #1 and Stripe #2) and several years younger than both companies

    I love working at Instacart. Interesting problems to solve, great culture, smart people.

      Stop anonymously sucking up.

    • Instacart JpLb54
      I doubt anyone knows who I am. Hard to suck up that way. It is easier being positive online you're right about that.

      Instacart will be put out of business (by Amazon or Uber or many of the other competitors in the space) before it could ever IPO.

      Wework has attractive valuation, but I have no insights into it. I’d assume it’s also more ops than product development (I’m in eng)

    I (sincerely) love employees promoting their own companies on the list. Shows passion and dedication to the company success and mission!
