Ask YC: What’s a typical stock compensation for joining a series A, 6 months old startup?
I have a job offer from an early stage (6 months old), series A funded startup, consisting of cash and around 0.35% equity (common stock options). The stocks can go up to 0.5% max, with less cash. Some health coverage, no 401K, nothing else actually. I’ll be the 8th employee.
Since I have never worked for a startup, I am asking you: what’s a “typical” stock offering figure for a early stage startup? And what would that be for a more “established” startup (e.g. Twitter)? I’m trying to understand if their equity offering is below or above market.
This is all very exciting but also confusing because I don’t have anything to compare it with in my past experience.>>> READ MORE at:
