Ah yeah I saw that and thought “wat” but I didn’t even realize that was in NYC :flushed:

For reference, a full time job in NYC at minimum wage is $20k.

According to glassdoor the average junior developer salary in NYC is $72,368. Technical lead should be quite a bit more at most places. Not to mention $10k is only 2/3 of the national minimum wage. I was thinking it might be a contract job but it doesn’t appear that way. I understand startups can be tight on cash but even suggesting that low is going to turn a lot of people away. You would have to be well enough off already to take a risk at $10k even with 15% equity and I don’t think too many people would be willing to do it.
