Uber offer pullback

I got an offer from Uber (5b TC ~$450k). I told them it's not enough. A week later was told the position is not needed anymore.
Now I'm stuck, what to do?

    Thereโ€™s always risk in negotiating. People think itโ€™s risk free for some reason. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

    If it wasn't enough why do you care? Sounds like you bluffed (not a good way to negotiate) and got what you deserve

    It also happened to me a while ago with MS. What do you mean you are stuck? Did you give notice at fb?

    I think when I interviewed with then they said let us know when you are ready to make a decision because once we make the offer you have 5 biz days to accept it.

    It happens. Maybe they felt you didn't like Uber that much.

    They hired someone else. The right way to ask for more money is by getting a counter offer from another firm.

    If youโ€™re eng, Iโ€™m sure there are a lot of other teams at Uber that would be very interested in having you join. Check with the recruiter.
