    This is literally unanswerable with the information given.

    Pick whichever job has the best tasting coffee.

      Welcome to Blind - this is common. It’s not my job to be helpful if the post doesn’t contain anything useful... if you actually want advice you should update your post with a lot more context about your current job, what your looking for, etc.

    Question: Is the offer 70k stock options or 70k worth of stock?

    In addition, consider the following points: How many outstanding stock in the company? Is it profitable? What is the company's TAM? Do the founders have pedigree i.e previous unicorn exits or highly regarded academics? How's the engineering culture?

    Evaluating a startup is more of an art than a spreadsheet calculation. There are many other factors that go into a decision to work at one.
