Career move (FANG now? OR after 2 - 3 of experience) ?
Studied CS and have 1 year of web application development experience.
Is it better to have 2 - 3 years of experience doing software development (React, Node, Docker, AWS, TypeScript, Unit tests, etc) at a smaller company and then move to FANG? I will be working at a smaller sized tech company where I will have more opportunity to have more responsibilities. ~140k base SF.
Should I jump ship to big tech companies as an entry level software engineer?
I have seen many people here who worked 2 - 3 years at smaller/mide-sized firms and jump ship to FANG and receive big TC. I also think that at a smaller tech company I will have opportunities to learn what software architects do (CI/CD, security etc) - where I feel as a entry level engineer at a big company I don't get to work on big picture stuff as quickly.
