I have. Salary was slightly less than I earned in consulting but that really depends on where you land. You no long have to accept low salary to get a foothold in start-ups. There is plenty of VC money floating around to find proper salaries.

The first start-up I worked at was growing fast by accident rather than design. The leadership was unfortunately abysmal because it was run by a bunch of people who hadn’t worked anywhere else so don’t understand how to set-up and run an organisation c.f. Revolut. This is fairly common so be aware that working conditions might be difficult because you’ll essentially be working for someone who has emotional maturity of a gnat.
