What I Wish I'd Known About Equity Before Joining A Unicorn

Disclaimer: This piece is written anonymously. The names of a few particular companies are mentioned, but as common examples only.

This is a short write-up on things that I wish I'd known and considered before joining a private company (aka startup, aka unicorn in some cases).

You appear to be advocating a new:

Most active GitHub users (git.io/top)

The count of contributions (summary of Pull Requests, opened issues and commits) to public repos at GitHub.com from Tue, 06 Dec 2016 17:06:46 GMT till Wed, 06 Dec 2017 17:06:46 GMT.

githubUsers
  .filter(user => user.followers > 1000)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
