India specific question

Google : small office, less teams
Facebook : no engineering office
Apple : customer support related work
Netflix : no engineering office
Amazon : does anyone even go here after MSFT

Any well funded startups offering a good deal and having a strong engineering culture?

Please suggest some options in India (Not interested in leaving India)

Currently : SDE2 in azure(lvl 61)

    You can also go to newer / smaller / start-up companies that will give you much bigger scope and responsibilities, and you get a very different experience. I have done myself that after 5 years at one of these top firms. But if you have to choose out of these only, Google maybe a better choice for your level and due to the fact that Google is making India specific investments. All the best

      You are right, but also, getting in Google without referral is a task. Are there any SaaS startups around? Not interested in ecomm, ride sharing, food delivery kinda startups
