Hello! New to the world of startups (like new new). I’m currently on a job hunt and a friend of a friend is hiring so I reached out to discuss the position. He said he liked my background, but said they are ~2 months away from launching their product and asked what my current living situation requires and if I would be willing/able to work for stocks for 1-3 months then transition into a salary?
I don’t know much about that side of startups (job I’m interested in is marketing their product), so can anyone here help explain it to me, what are the risks, is this a good deal, what kind of questions I should be asking back to him?
I’m not in a position where I need a job right this second, but the job hunt has been going very ~meh over the last 4 weeks and I don’t want to turn down a job if it is a good deal. (Edited for typo.)
