If your reasearch is on a topic they can use in their work, I would think the research master's would be slightly preferable. But besides that, I don't see why they would care, assuming you're passing IOA exams regularly and your work is good.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but you might consider spending some time on your writing skills while pursuing your master's.
