Google India or Facebook London Engineering
Being offered L4 Software Development profile at both companies. Compensation is competitive according to market standards at both places.
Which would be good career wise? I want to solve some real challenging distributed system problems. 5 year goal is to speak at a Scalability conference.
Current YOE is 5 years. Prior experience includes writing services according to business use cases from scratch but nothing exceptionally challenging.
Do I have a shot at a team from where I can meet my 5year goal? If yes, at which of these companies/locations?
Facebook does not preallocate teams and forces candidates to go through a bootcamp. My team at Google India is a business facing team, which I assume translates to not a lot of core development.
Can anyone help me make a decision?
