Is the move to a start-up a risk worth taking?

Published on Saturday, 30 Dec 2017

 

I am a back-end developer with a good job working for a financial institution. After a few successful ventures into app development, I have been approached to work for a new start-up.

The enterprise has secured a first round of seed funding and has a vision and product that, if executed properly, could be hugely successful. I am a bit worried, though, about the potential insecurity of it all. Is it worth taking the plunge?
