I have received a offer from a local start-up and was presented an offer.
I spent the last few days reading on this board looking for insight into the start-up financing world. The team is three co-founders, 3 developers and about 12 headcount for this year.
Here are the details:
I am trying to do the analysis about what happens if the company is sold/bought. That is the end game from what I can gather... What questions should I be asking?
Considering you are going to get "near market value" for your salary for your role, you are in a pretty good position where it isn't costing you much.
A lot of people would take a 10% - 20% pay cut just to do work they love, so if you think you would really enjoy this role then that might be as good a deciding factor as any. You can then consider the equity to be a nice bonus on top.
I think generally people get much more hung up on equity when they are getting a much lower salary.
Does the job look fun? Do you think they will succeed? Those two questions are probably more important.
Well this doesnt look like a good offer for you. You seem to be interested more in contract which is well done instead of the opportunities you could bring to a startup, and make more money this way.
