I am going to be joining a startup as an employee in the Midwest, USA. I will be joining as the number 2 employee, but I doubt that he considers me a founder, as he has already been in business for 1.5 years.
The company is a boot-strapped software development consulting company that is working on a product on the side. He has stated that he wants his employees to have some ownership.
When I join the company, what percentage can I expect in an equity grant?
I do not yet know what my title will be but I consider myself a talented software developer that has the potential to grow into a more well-rounded, business-savvy leader. Any incite would be extremely helpful as I have never worked at a startup before.
