Im considering joining a pre-ipo unicorn called Stripe. I no idea when they will IPO, anyone know how much equity they offer employees for tech and non tech roles?

Looking for early to mid career range offers around 3-6 years exp.

    Are you really asking this? No one knows. There are companies that people made money on and many more that they made shit or even went in the red with. Best you can do is do some research about what they are about, funding, ask about total number of shares outstanding etc, look at their leadership.
    In the end it comes down to you. Get a decent base and fight for equity if you think they have a good shot at an IPO.
