    What makes Stripe the hot new place that keeps coming up? Just the culture/talent or has there been actual business success over rivals?

      Strong business success, $20b valuation, strong culture and high comp (they beat my FANG offers).

      Declined - didn’t want Bay Area, and difference wasn’t great enough to justify the move

      Bummer, I hear they have a good remote work policy. Might have missed a negotiating opportunity if comp was your deciding factor.

      This was a management position, so location was not negotiable. Overall it was a very positive experience though.

    Didn’t they just do a direct listing? So no longer pre-ipo right?

      No, Stripe didn’t do a direct listings. They’re still a private company.

    I just interviewed there. I was expecting it to be like an early FANG but I didn't really get a great vibe from people I met. Would like to know of there are teams/product areas that are actually exciting
