    Lyft is sexier and I’d imagine more on the cutting edge of new tech. Not sure how much innovation there is in SSO and SIEM. Plus, there is not as much love for enterprise SaaS like Okta and Splunk. But both are making money hand over fist, while Lyft is struggling financially. Stock price is just one indicator.

    You’ll learn at all three. If you have no strong preference between enterprise SaaS and transportation, pick the one with the better manager.

    I would encourage you to join Lyft. At 3.5 YOE you’ll get a lot autonomy without too much responsibility. I would try and negotiate comp though.

    okta’s stock over 3x ed in the past year. does it have more steam? yes. undisputed leader in that space. will the market be conducive to the growth? hard to say

    lyft’s ipo was not particularly spectacular. could it grow? maybe but uber has a huge stake in the game. how low will it go if the market tanks? 🤷‍♂️

    What's the rsu breakdown?

      With 1500 RSU it's hard to make it a pure money argument as I think okta has a ceiling of 150 right now if the market continues being favorable and nothing retar.ded like a breach happens. This doesn't give you a whole lot of financial upside. However, professionally it may be a better move because everybody and their mother already went to Lyft so you may not get to work on hight impact projects. Okta on the other hand is less known so you may be able to cultivate your knowledge there more efficiently.

      Not an easy choice

      Yes - I’m confused about okta culture. Read some bad reviews about management.

      200k over 4 years for Okta rsu? Is that for principle level? How about base and sign on?

      Splunk got the same culture issue you just don’t know it. Negative reviews in public are constantly flagged for removal/scrubbed.

    Wlb at splunk is good. Tech wise I do not think it is more exciting than Lyft unless you can work on ML. Financial wise splunk and okta are both better (Losing less money) than Lyft obvuously. Lyft has a slightly better brand of course.

      The ML work is integration work like wrapping opensource ML library. The work is closer to data engineer at other places. If you are talking about data science in terms of coming up of experiment then it is not

      but thats about it though. tech wise especially when you will be on the flagship product there is no innovation or really little learning if any. If thats ok, then thats fine.
