Which offer to take? (UBS/DB/Two Sigma/Jump/Flow Trader)

I have knowledge in both trading and programming, hence, I applied to different roles. Which one of the options look the best to you (Just from the career progression and compensation perspective)?
1. UBS/DB/CS S&T internship (London)
2. Flow Trader/IMC Trading Intern (Amsterdam)
3. Two Sigma Software engineering/ Jump Trading software engineering
Thanks for any input you may have!

Would be between 1 or 2. Arguably 1 sets you up pretty well with a brand name and the optionality to apply to prop shops again in final year.

Software (even at a top place for the career) I see as more of a trump card/exit strategy if you decide a revenue generating career is not the road you want to take (and/or you were unsuccessful somehow).
