I work remotely for a series A start up, TC is about $115K + equity. I work approximately 30hrs a week in a busy week, only meet with my boss and team once a week. I just got an offer for $140K + 4X the amount of equity I currently have… however, not sure it’s worth letting go of the incredible freedom and work life balance I currently have. Any thoughts to help make the decision?
PS: I love our product, but not as passionate about the other startup

You can think of it in terms of exit ops and upward mobility. Do you have upward mobility at your current place? Are either backed by top VC funds (which helps for exit ops)? Is the current company going to be raising another round soon (this obviously should help your equity + help with exit ops)?

Some things to consider.
