Is Github going to have an IPO? If yes, any projections on when?

    I don’t think it will IPO. There’s higher chance that Github gets acquired by another player in developer space - like Microsoft.

      I think Gitlab might acquire it to increase the market share!

    So Github can’t IPO because they’re owned by Microsoft? Sorry, I’m like 18 and stupid, can somebody help me out?

    So new Github employees are given Microsoft stock as part of their equity package?

      Does Github pay better than Microsoft?

      I don’t know how MSFT pays. So maybe?

      A director pays around $300tc - is that on par or more/less than Github?

      Don’t know, I’m not a director. My best guess is that it’s in the ballpark, but for many of us the equity grants we have are what we received on joining. Supposedly later this year we are supposed to hear about refreshers more in line with how MSFT does it, but current TC is probably inversely proportionate to tenure provided that the grant is options not RSUs.

      Hopefully your refreshers are WAY better than the way Microsoft does it. Refreshers are why we bleed talent at 50% attrition.

    I sure hope GitHub gets acquired or IPOs because I’d like my equity to be worth something.

    • Is your equity converted to msft stock yet? Or eventually?

      Indeed. At close there was a payout for options held and a conversion of exercised options (GitHub stock) to MSFT shares. Unvested options were converted to MSFT options and are vesting as per the original agreements.

  • There’s always a chance that Warren breaks up Microsoft and then github is a separate company that goes to IPO . Boom 💥
