Microsoft, Databricks or Robinhood?

Sep 19, 2019 18 Comments

Have offers for all 3, Microsoft is in Redmond and Databricks/Robinhood are in SF.

I'd be working on Azure in Microsoft, or as a backend engineer at Databricks/Robinhood. Comp is about the same.

Also looking for conversion to full time after internship.

    Databricks is growing like crazy and their product is hot. Also, underlying technology is very in demand (Spark). That's what I would pick. Eitherway, I think you can't go wrong with any of these choices. Maybe I wouldn't go to Seattle because of, you know, no sun.

    Databricks no brainer. Crazy growth and much stronger eng team in general vs the other two.

    Azure is a growing division in Microsoft. Go, live in Seattle, and steer clear of SF IMO

      Azure seems cool! What's wrong with SF?

    Databricks has a lot of upside in equity value I feel. They keep growing like crazy and have a great product.

      About 2 days, pretty quick I'd say.

    Robinhood is one of the best out there right now. Intern there cuz it’s small and growing super fast

      What's wrong with SF? Genuinely curious, since it seems like there's a lot of talent/opportunity there.

    Microsoft has super easy conversion, I personally would pick Databricks if you think you could live in SF after, if you don't care about those two factors I'd pick Robinhood
