1) first company - startup in real estate domain. Base - 160k. Sign on 10k. SFO. 14000 shares(0.85 cents per share) company valuation ~78 million. Series b coming soon. At least said by VP or product. They started company in 2014. Revenue this year will be 12 million and next year 24 million.

2) second company - in freight industry. Unicorn startup. Raised 3 digit millions USD. Super growth on their revenue. Base - 155k. Sign on 10k.bay area again. 10000 shares. May IPO 3+ years later.

What are your thoughts?
Never worked for FAANG, but onsites and phone interviews scheduled .both companies do web dev and use ML/AI....

Assuming no offer from FAANG, which one I should take? Why?

    Is #2, flexport? It'd take that over a real estate startup. Real estate as an industry is slow and may be down for the next few years.

    Question: Is Flexport preferable to FAANG? Will the shares they give you compensate for the lower salary + equity?

      I don’t think anything will be comparable to FAANG. You will have to think about non monetary things such as more ownership/impact/job satisfaction.
