Google vs Dropbox vs Opendoor

May 31, 2018 12 Comments

3 years of SDE exp, no masters, I love backend work.

Google is Google, probably the safest choice, but the team and comp is a bit meh.

I don’t really know much about Dropbox besides their amazing food and the project seems cool.

Opendoor is pretty interesting, met a lot of ex-Uber engineers there, do you guys think they will be the next 10x-100x startup like Robinhood?

Offers are before negotiation:

Google (Seattle Double Click team): 118k+220k/4+40k signon+15% bonus

Dropbox (SF Paper team): 160k+280k/4+20k signon+10% bonus

Opendoor (SF data engineering team): 160k+250k/4+10k signon

      What makes you think so? Zillow/Redfin are both launching competitor services and Zillow even after everything they’ve done only has market cap of 7.4 billion, what makes you think OpenDoor can out grow that?

      Zillow is only top of funnel search, they’ve monetized poorly historically ($7b market cap for TOF for a $25t asset class??) and risk isolating public shareholders if they cannibalize their Preferred Agent revenue by pivoting to a better business model.

      Redfin isolated the agent community agents and never had more than 1% market share in a market.

      I’d be shocked if Opendoor doesn’t triple revenue with in the next year. That already would put it roughly on par with Z.

    Just bc Zillow/Redfin are launching products similar to Opendoor doesn’t mean they know what they’re doing. I’ve met some of their leadership team members and WOW they are going to make sure that company succeeds. I’m thinking about jumping ship from Lyft.

    Voted for Dropbox because I think Paper team is better for your career growth.

    What you mean by 250k/4 how you know its RSU worth 250k. By the way what is the conversion you using to get to 250k for Opendoor?
