Similar to this question: Amount of vesting equity for #3-#4 employee? But it seems to discuss what equity paid developers should expect. If I am a developer that is unpaid, what would be a reasonable percentage of the stock to expect for doing software development? What would be a reasonable vesting period?
IMHO if you're unpaid, then you are a founder.
I think you should really consider reading this: Forming a new software startup, how do I allocate ownership fairly? His point is that people get paid for their work. If the person doing the work is not getting paid in cash (i.e., no salary) then they get paid in an IOU (i.e., debt). To try to balance out who is working harder and, thus deserves more equity, is a way to create resentment and will, eventually, destroy an otherwise solid business.
