YC's job board now lets job seekers filter by equity offered on the job description. Over 380 startups have posted roles with equity, with some early engineering roles offering 2%.
At YC, we tell our founders to be generous with equity, and even suggest giving 10% to the first 10 employees. Early employees are taking a bigger risk by working at an early stage startup, and their upside should be significantly greater than employees at later stage or public companies.
Below are a few startups on the platform hiring and providing equity compensation on their job listing. See the full list of startups by creating a profile on YC's job board and find yours.
