      Rather it doesn’t make sense to join unicorn , join ones that will become a unicorn

    Life is short and sometimes could be boring. I would rather go find more challenges and not stay in the comfort zone.

      I am assuming you are talking about Unicorn. Leaving Qualcomm already means I am out of my comfort zone. Thanks

    Care to provide some more context? Would you ideally like to be a core engineer? Do you care? Is the Unicorn one also partner engineering?

    Ive turned down interviews because of distinctions like Solutions Engineering and Software Engineering. It matters a lot to me more than company status

      Exactly and in partner also there is pre and post sales so it seems like pre sales is more closer to engineering compare to post sales. Google has done TC categorization for each of these

      Was this for a sales eng role or Partner Eng?

      Curious, is Solutions Engineer not cool or something?

    What was the Partner Engineer role? Or was it just in that organization?
