Which would you take and why? HubSpot total comp is ~$30,000/yr higher if I don’t count Qualtrics RSUs

    Dont accept a qualtrics offer where if you leave the company you lose rsus. A lot of people made that mistake, but you can definitely negotiate to keep rsus a year after leaving.

      Did you mean you can only keep RSUs for a year after leaving?

      By default, you lose all rsus after leaving (unless we ipo), it's insane. Depending on other offers you have, you can negotiate to keep rsus for sometime after leaving, I believe up to 3 years.

      That said, Qualtrics is fun. Not sure about hubspot, but you'll definitely be challenged and learn a lot.

    Depends on the role(s). Both are good companies.

    What role(s)/areas would you be working in?

      HubSpot id be doing backend but wouldn’t know the team until later, qualtrics I’d be doing big data backend (I’ve talked to the team I’d be on) working with scala, Hadoop, elastic search

      Honestly, I’d opt for Qualtrics because it sounds more interesting. Scala, Hadoop and ELK stack is a bunch of fun. I’d have to imagine they’re using Spark also.

      Only downside is if you love Scala there isn’t a ton of companies using it but the transition to a role using Java or C# isn’t bad.

      I’d also have to imagine some Python is in there as well for big data use.

    Doesn’t HubSpot include RSUs in the total comp? You should just do apples to apples comparison.

      HubSpot is public tho so theirs are worth hard cash. If I leave qualtrics before they IPO I don’t get anything and they’ve been private for 15 yrs
