If you have ever worked for a bigger company and are now considering joining a startup, be prepared—you will definitely see a difference. It is not a Monday to Friday, 9–5 job. It takes a lot from you, and it can be extremely demanding. At the same time, it can be super rewarding, and you can grow personally more than you ever thought possible.
Imagine flexible working hours and the freedom to choose your own schedule. You will never run out of things to do—there is always work to be done. Normal working hours do not apply to startups, and you need to be extremely flexible.
The team is small, and you are passionate about the same thing, you get inevitably close to each other. In a startup company, work is often more than just work. The line between your working time and free time can blur, but you are okay with it. Just like when you are truly passionate about something, you get more out of it than you give.
