So I work as a developer for this company. I have an idea to develop a new system for the company where I would own 10% and they would own 90% of the system. The system would integrate with their existing systems, they would sell it to existing clients, and I would develop it for free after my normal work hours.
My question is how do I propose this idea to the executives that work on the same floor as me without putting my job at risk? I have my concerns listed below
- "I would own 10%" me asking this could look like I'm trying to compete against the company or something
- I am a junior developer for them to leave the building of an entire system completely up to me seems risky
What is the likelihood that the company would be open to something like this? After all they wouldn't be putting much at risk by not paying for development costs and if the system turns out to be a hit they cash in on 90% without really doing anything.
I am very passionate about the system and I believe that it would be a huge success. I don't want to loose my job though.
