Compensation and Equity Calculator

This is a tool we built at The Hiring Advisors to improve the level of transparency we provide to candidates whom we end up making an offer to. Accepting a new job offer is an incredibly personal decision, and compensation is only one factor. Since startup compensation can be particularly confusing, we wanted to share a tool we built here at Front to help candidates make informed decisions.


How it works

You can input the values in the calculator below. This will help you estimate the value of your equity package based on various scenarios. Account for some dilution in future rounds of funding. Please note that this document is not a guarantee of anything, it is only a tool to help you estimate the potential value of your equity.
