Negotiating a super early stage startup offer
I am an operation research grad student at Ivy league University. Very Very good in Linear Algebra, Prob Stats, Stochastic, ML and DL( coding + math behind algo).
Decent in Algo coding on leetcode.
I am super interested to work for startups. Interviewing only at under 20-30 member startups.
Startup: Early stage, Palo Alto and Israel based cracking enterprise AI. Very experienced team. Current team size 15. Total funding to date $40-50m.
Position: Data Scientist
It would require solving the business problem of customers using DS/ML. And also help in developing their product. The role seems more on applied ML side.
What should be my target when I jump on call to negotiate my offer?
