    Texas and SDE. SDE > DevOps, Texas COL. Although ESPP is a nice benefit.

      Eventually I do wanna become an SDE but I feel like I will learn more as a DevOps. How hard would it be to transition into an SDE role.

      It’s not hard to switch but you’ll have to start from the bottom. Is it a worst company or team? I don’t understand why you’d take the DevOps offer if you want to be SDE in the future. You could be SDE now.

      Yeah thats part of the reason. Entry level barely have stuff to work on at the company so I feel like DevOps would be better for now.

      I see. I’d actually keep looking or see if they’d be willing to give you a shot at SDE. Be deliberate about what you want. I’ve seen people in DevOps for 10+ years who always wanted to be a SDE. Congrats on your offers. Best of luck!

    F-ing awesome offer. Accept both.

    You (and every other moron) who asks such ones — no one can judge any offs for you. Each offer depends upon your unique circumstances, the team you are joining, the work you will be doing, and your career aspirations. So quit posting such inane shit.

    Or just accept the one that pays more $$$$!

    Take the SDE. Growth is more in SDE as compared to devops. The 11k gap won’t appear much once you gain a good experience, the benefits will be immense. Also, Dallas is cheaper than NJ, FWIW
