Is it worth moving to Florida for a Software Eng. position at Magic LeapFeb 7
Trying to get an idea how Magic Leap is doing and is it worth moving from the Bay Area to Florida ?
- Apple / EngMojaveXTough one. Not many big tech companies in Florida if you choose to leave Magic Leap. But you get nice weather, and no state income tax
- It’s Dania Beach, which is realistically 2 hours away from the cool part of South Florida/Miami. There’s nothing to do except golf, eat seafood, or retire in that area. As for Magic Leap, they have offices around the world but I’m afraid they’re burning way too much cash for any sustainability with their product.
Now, if we are talking about Miami, there are some areas definitely better worth living in than the Bay Area.
- I like it because there is lots of opportunity in improving as an engineer, developing engineering practices here, in leading, and in learning (new tech, etc). It feels like a large, well funded startup outside of the tech bubble of the Bay Area, which has the benefit of more freedom and less micro-management, but the downside of less local talent and ecosystem.
I think our product has immense potential under the condition that we can find our niche, produce real revenue, and continue to develop AR/MR as a viable platform for developers to make a living in and consumers to use.Feb 100
