Moving from MSFT to Uber ATG ?

Currently in Seattle working for Microsoft. I overall like my team (technical opportunity, lots of feeedom, WLB) but am kind of jaded from working on legacy enterprise software. Still getting new hire stock, but even at L62 I could be making more somewhere else.

I'm interviewing with Uber ATG, but would need to relocate. Mostly interested in the SF and Boulder offices. Would that be a good career move?

      A prophecy that has since then been verified. Many more to come, and highly needed.

    You should try outside. But remember actually working on enterprise software teaches you more about the real engineering challenges. Consumer sounds fun but it can get old and realize its more like kids play. Anyhow I would suggest to anyone to try both if they can.

    Yes. More projects means you’re more likely to move up
