Should I join a company purely based on salary?

I got a job offer for a Software Developer with a decent salary. But I'm not sure if I want to join that company cause the company is a non tech company that utalizes software for their service and I want to work in a company that is more technically challenging and with an environment for engineering. But the cause of dilemma is that I want a job right now with a stable income stream. So should I wait for another opportunity or just take this for now?

Take the job since you need money now. You can move later

The best time to look for a job is while you already have one. Absolutely take the job now and you can easily keep looking for a better fit.
