What to ask about funding, growth etc in a post start up company?

Mar 13

Do you worry/bother about a companies financial status?

Is it appropriate to ask about their funding? About their runway and growth?

I’m not sure how one would discuss this, I suspect that I am older than a lot of you and I’m also in operations which is not as in demand skillset as engineering/development so the job jumping options don’t seem as open. Like if a company goes under it’s going to take me longer to get a new role than most.

So with that in mind does the company standing have any bearing on your decision?

I see so many company descriptions of them bragging about $200m in funding but what about when that money runs out?

Having said all that I would be ok with 3 years before they hit the wall but 6 months would be an issue. How to do you gauge stability?
