I've work in my fair share of startups, and even today I feel like on every new one I still miss some important questions on the interview process:
- Financial: What is the burn rate, runway as the company stands today ?
- Who are the investors / Board members, how long have they been, industry experience and connections to the company.
- Vision for the product, proposed path to get there
- Founder's experience
As an early member of a startup I know I'll be actually helping and leading the resolution of some of the questions, but it's important to see where the company, founders and early members stand before jumping in.
What are other questions you have asked and consider critical or important ?
