Job Description

This is an equity-only position, with compensation expected to be between 7.5-15% on a typical four-year, one-year cliff vesting schedule. We have not raised any funding yet, but in the event of a capital raise, there is an expected amount of dilution to bring on the investors and an option pool. The value you bring to the team and the progress we make will boost the valuation to offset this 🙂
