As offices move, Silicon Valley startups include the yankee dream: they're interesting, enjoyable, and supply staff with nice flexibility and freedom. subscribe to the precise startup, and you may swap the area! This booklet covers issues of curiosity to a person who desires to paintings at startups:

Drawing from my 17 years of expertise at a number of pre-IPO businesses in Silicon Valley, I offer solutions to the above questions. broad examples, case experiences, and exact historical past are within the book.

After studying concerning the own finance part of dealing with inventory concepts, I joined Google below a yr ahead of the IPO and came upon that what I had realized was once infrequently universal wisdom. regardless of explaining the main points to numerous colleagues, many selected to not do the financially helpful factor, resulting in an elevated tax legal responsibility of a number of hundred thousand funds. This ebook was once the results of looking at those disasters, and attempting to hinder others from making an analogous mistakes.

What's assorted approximately this book?

Emphasis at the engineering non-founder. so much startup books are desirous about the founder(s). for each founder at a profitable corporation, there are hundreds of thousands of non-founders. This booklet is for everybody who's now not a founder. i do not let you know how one can increase funds or learn a term-sheet. that is the founder's task. often, the founder's objectives and your ambitions are diverse. for example, whilst negotiating repayment, the worker and agency take a seat on contrary facets of the table.
Short and to the purpose. Pages usually are not wasted telling you the way to jot down a resume. I exhibit you the way an engineering interviewer thinks. I did over three hundred interviews for Google, and sat on a hiring committee for three years. ahead of that, i used to be an engineering supervisor for three various startups and in addition played enormous quantities of interviews.
Covers the $64000 tax making plans themes that only a few startups will inform you due to worry of court cases. Employers usually are not allowed to push their inventory onto their employees.
Quotes and event from recognized winning startup specialists like Wayne Rosing (Google's first Senior vice president of Engineering), Jeff Rothschild (VP of know-how at fb, Co-Founder of Veritas, Co-Founder of Mpath Interactive), and different startup veterans.
