I was interviewed by a startup founder for work as a front-end developer (ReactJs and firebase as backend), I was doing exactly what they would ask me to achieve on a weekly basis, I was paid 5€/hour and even though it may seem so little, my goal was to gain experience in front-end development and grow as an individual. This was my second job.
This week the founder asked to do video call and told me that he finds the project will grow to be more complex and will demand more skills in front-end development than the skills I have. So they will look for a senior developer, that it has nothing to do with me personally because I was always open for feedback and learning every time they would ask me to.
The reason I am asking about this: do you think I should have refused the offer because I was aware that I’m a junior and that things may get too advanced for my level or that it’s something they do in freelance to hire a junior and then move to senior as things level up?
