First of all, I'm going to start off with a little bit of background. I'm 22 and graduated almost 2 years ago. I'm a very methodical and precise guy. I like working on analyzed projects and mature things before I push them to production. I've been working for a startup for one year now and my contract is ending pretty soon.
The reason I'm posting here is because I have become really skeptical about startups and work-life balance around them. I was approached by another startup this week and they seem really interested in me. I do have to say I like what they're doing because it fits me.
Is it possible in start-ups to "take the lead" and guide people to more best-practices (even with less experience) works ? Or just because they have to grow fast, we'll have to build fast without tests, etc ?
Does working in multiple start-ups really build legit experience in your career ? I mean you'll probably end up failing a lot and he could be good. But I feel like some HR are just looking at what you succeeded in.
Edit: Made it into a more viable post for other people, not just a "should I take the job" post
