Referrals needed (had to decline my Uber offer) - Dropbox, Square, Stripe, Box, Snap, Slack, etc

Sep 16 19 Comments

Hello fellow blinders,

I am looking for referrals to the comanies listed in the title, plus Robinhood, Redfin. Zillow, and Coinbase. I am currently unemployed and had to decline an offer from Uber, so im back to square one and have no other interviews lined up. I had to decline the offer because it was too much of a downlevel, not worth getting laid off in a few months. I have 8 years of backend experience and was most recently a Senior tech lead, looking for backend roles in the bay area.

update: some people have been questioning my decision to decline the Uber offer. The decision has been made and it was the best thing for me. lets focus on the referrals please.

    I'm not really clear on why you had to decline the offer from Uber. Now you're unemployed

      I respect the decision, but from my perspective you'd have money in your pocket, could jump ship at the next suitable opportunity and wouldn't even need to report that you worked at Uber

      That’s not ideal. I would rather interview in that time.

      Lol @TreeFity! I think you should come over too :)

      The culture is great. Lots of room to grow and pursue teams and products you like. Most managers encourage you to do the right thing and get Zillow to a better place. Benefits are decent, pays well too.

      How’s the food at Zillow? I’m not that picky. If it’s better than the Costco food court, that’s good enough for me.

      Does the culture lean towards sjw or tech bros?

      Can you dm me?

      Hey I was half joking, both are great companies, it all depends on what interests you more as a business, because the nature of the business is very different. e.g. brokerage vs marketing company
