Considering an exit to a startup that just completed a solid series B. They’re willing to provide competitive comp package and surprised how large the base is for a startup. Has me concerned about being on the high end and being the first person that comes to mind when it’s time to pinch a few pennies or clean up the books ahead of future rounds/IPO. Valid concern or am I overthinking it?

Overthinking. Likely a ways off until IPO prep if they just closed a series B. Also, just leave after 25% if your equity comp vests. Find another startup, get hired, wait til 25% of your equity comp vests, repeat.

I’ve had recruiters just reach out to me.

The best time for equity multiple expansion is B to E. You'll do great.
