I am considering to interview with some of the startups from the list below. Of course, I cannot talk to all of them. I'd love to know which ones are worth to talk to.

Slack
Stripe
Clover
Pinterest
Open Table
Hulu
Robinhood
Nextdoor
Wish
Reddit
Drive.ai
Thumbtack
Coinbase
MapR
Confluent
SignlaFx
Trulia
Zillow
Imgur
Lendup
Prosper
Aether
Sumo Logic

I'm not including any unicorn startups - Uber, Lyft, etc.
I have around 5.5 years of experience of which 3.5 years in Distributed Systems. Masters from one of the top 5 CS schools, if that matters.

      Is Confluent better than the other ones here? In what way?

    • LinkedIn sh!tcoin🤑
      The companies are not comparable since they operate in different since. I'm not sure how to say one is "better" than the other, not sure even Satoshi can answer that.
      Confluent is in a great growing space, the founders built Kafka when at LinkedIn, many companies have adopted or are adopting Kafka, and they seem to be well funded.

      Yes, I agree with you. I should have done a better job at framing the question.

      I'm looking for a startup working on a product which could potentially be widely adapted/successful. I'll do more research on Confluent. Thanks!
