    Both are good brands on your resume. I wouldn’t personally differentiate between both the companies if I received a resume.

    I would take the decision based on the work profile. If everything else is equal, I would give Uber a slightly upper edge because of stronger engineering talent and possible growth opportunities.

    Btw - Daniel Ek (Spotify founder/ceo) was responsible for Dara to take up the position of Uber CEO! Before thinking about prestige alone, may be pay attention to this fact too.

    Why do people like Uber? Personally, I'd rather join Spotify (assuming equal pay)

    • I find the engineers there quite talented and the management very supportive. It reminds me very much of Facebook to be honest.

    I am very surprised that the offer you received from Uber is almost the same as what Spotify gives. Spotify TC isn't usually in that range. Regardless, congrats on both!

    For what it's worth you should base it on what you'll be working on at either company. Sure on the outside looking in Uber boasts the better eng/tech branding. However, if you're working on products that are meh and not technically challenging to you then you're hurting yourself more in the future when it comes to "opening more doors" than whatever company a recruiter is looking to poach from.

      True. I think you would be fun to be around as long as we got along, i guess.

    I joined Spotify recently and have been loving it. I would personally have a hard time with morale working at a company that low balled me.

    If that doesn't bother you then consider the extras because the two companies are at a similar level.

    Commute, parental leave, insurance, and culture come to mind.

    I agree with the sentiment of Uyah. In terms of resume both are equivalent. I would go with the more interesting team.
