Why Startups Over FAANGs

by Abdur-Rahmaan Janhangeer

That’s one take where working at startups might be more interesting than staying at a FAANG company. The company might be surfing on bullions of USD, it might even have the same service internally but, it’s also about the focus, passion and purpose.

Scott worked at Google. Google had Cinder internally. It was a cloud IDE that the mega giant built. It had loads of infra to test on. Bright minds to work on it. But, Replit was more appealing. The problem is hard to tackle but there not much interest from Google to do it, it’s not that they can’t, it’s that they are not interested.

Solving problems in a niche field has an irresistible appeal. Specially if you are at the very bleeding edge. Specially if the startup has been consistently delivering and showing proofs of foresight.
