I have an offer from Twitter Ads team in SF and Amazon EBS team in Seattle. Place is not a concern for me. Pay is approx same at both places even accounting for Seattle state tax. Which one is better from a learning and career growth perspective?

    I've been at both companies. Twitter over Amazon is an easy choice

      Twitter is full of millennial SJWs eating chef prepared food while literally stepping over the homeless to get into work every day. If you can fit in that environment, great.

      lol, I work at twitter. I’m 50 years old. I volunteer in the tenderloin quite regularly... Twitter makes that super easy. You need to upgrade your troll game.

    Twitter is going down and Amazon is going up each year.

    Lol, I guess the answer depends on how long Trump will be in office. Trump loves Twitter, hates Amazon.

    Seattle state tax? Seattle is not a state and the state it’s in has no income tax.

    New Twitter Eng VP 💯; great team where you can learn a lot and have lots of rooms to grow and meaningfully contribute. Though SF < Seattle ....

    Twitter ads team is amazing. Lot of problems to solve and it’s a place where voices and opinions of ICs are heard 💯

    Not sure what EBS is, but do you find ads interesting? I've heard from many engineers that ad tech can be pretty stale for them...

    Twitter also has #BranchingOut which allows you to change teams later on 🐣🐥🦆

    Twitter without a second doubt, I interned at Amazon and Twitter is much better company wise. No idea about specific teams though

    Twitter for sure. Not many hiring opportunities in cloud going forward. If you have to switch later, you will have very few options. Trend seems to be building ML apps or services on cloud.

    Twitter has better culture and you get lot more exposure working in a relatively small company.
