Doordash vs 88

New IyvL68
Oct 21, 2018 45 Comments

8x8 (public company):
Base: $190k
Equity: $120k (3 years vest)
No sign on bonus

Doordash:
Base: $160k
Equity: $150k (4 years vest)
Sign on: $10k

Note: Doordash still open for negotiation.

My goal: I’m a junior developer (3 YOE) and want to take my skills to the next level. Plus I want something shiny on my resume.

Also tips on what to negotiate on is greatly appreciated!

    I remember when I interviewed at 8x8, they said they are going for building "good enough" products to have more products to offer for their clients.

    In other words, quantity over quality. Doesn't sound too good to me to be honest. Also they mentioned that there are many legacy code written throughout their systems and how it's been a pain for them to go around it.

      Is it because they’re entering robotics space

      We are doing several things including what you mentioned. Can’t divulge everything here. Also stock is currently undervalued.

      😂😂😂 taking share away from Uber Eats haha I love it dude. The confidence is welcomed, but Uber Eats has been tearing up your market space since we joined.

      Uber eats is only taking away share from GrubHub for now. I think Doordash has increased a little recently but is not increasing share substantially.

    8x8 is okay but DoorDash is a better brand and you may learn more in a fast paced environment.

      Thanks! 8x8 interview wasn’t really difficult compared to Doordash. Is it safe to assume their eng team won’t allow me to learn a lot compared to doordash?
      Oct 21, 2018
    • Proofpoint / Eng foodtruckj
      It's not safe to assume it but DoorDash overall beats 8x8 in name recognition, pay, and learning opportunity.

    Doordash is probably better but they are basically a company of junior level ppl who have no deep experience. They're just now hiring ppl who know how to manage. Until now they entry level folks with passion have just been making stuff up. So, I would ask them about mentorship, career development if you haven't already. Is there anyone there you can actually learn from?

    Source: my own long ass interview process with them...

      Two on-sites.
      1. 3 hr project build, then demo
      2. Algorithms with senior engineer

      Not to bad. But I don’t like how they required 2 onsites....

    8x8s stock has gone up 4x in 4 years. It’s becoming a SaaS provider whereas it was originally a service provider. I expect it to go up another 4x given market size and lack of any real competitors except one. It’s biggest competitor is valued at 3x ($6B).

    Plus it’s real liquid equity at the end of each year.

    Doordash might not go IPO for the next few years if the market goes south.

      Yes you are. Good for both of us that the market is recognizing the value of unified cloud communications. With Total market size of $50B+, I’m sure both these companies will thrive for the foreseeable future.

      iOS project homework (displaying restaurants), then you do a demo to engineer. After that you’re brought on-site where you extend the app. They have 1+ hour of culture fit questions.

      Be prepared for talking about scaling mobile app architecture and etc for the system design.
