Alex spent the last five years at a very small technology startup, and, after the birth of his twin boys, he knew he had some catching up to do with his compensation. He also wanted to make a bigger impact than where he had been and wanted a company that could afford to pay him market wage for his talents, with great upside potential.
Within 8-10 weeks of searching, Alex received a job offer from a $500M enterprise as a Director of Technology, reporting to the CTO of this larger employer. The best part? He essentially doubled his compensation with an upside potential within 3 years of making an $850K to $2M cash payout once recapitalization happens.
