    Really tough choice because I love DropBox but because UberEats I would go Uber. My friend is an executive in the org and has told me that Eats continues to grow. Food delivery used to be Postmates, DoorDash, GrubHub, and Eats whereas now it’s very close just between Eats and DoorDash with Eats improving each quarter. I would imagine the org is going to continue getting funded quite well so there may be growth opportunities. Dropbox has a great engineering culture. So hard choice really if you go and hopefully maybe someone from both can give their 2 cents as well.

    Dropbox culturally and wlb is way better than uber. But as product company there are serious concerns with their offerings. So any role in dropbox should be taken cautiously. Look at their stock growth in the last 5 years. Its terrible.

    Uber is still yet to make any profits, but there are so many channels that the company is pursuing Freight, Eats, ATG etc.

    So if you honestly want to just enjoy a good wlb, amazing food and maybe learn a little on the job then dropbox.

    If you are looking for a more permanent fit , then I would say Uber cause I think the opportunity to learn and grow is a lot more in Uber. Specially the scale at which Uber works is a lot different than Dropbox.

      Written well – I agree. Dropbox is great, but I think UberEats is a better product from a saturation and longevity perspective.

      Yes, sorry they went ipo in 2018 sometime. I looked at robinhood quickly and their 1y and 5y chart basically.

      5 year chart? DBX has only been public for about a year now. Also, don't underestimate that sweet sweet recurring revenue. Cloud storage is going to be a 50b industry, and contrary to what some people think, it's not a winner take all industry. In fact, it's incredibly sticky, meaning people tend to stick with what they start with. And dbx has advantages there with their massive 500m user base.
