A Silicon Valley software startup wants to hire me as a engineer.
They've so far only taken seed funding on the order of $80k. The
company is now a few months old and I would be their first hire. I
have about 1 year of experience in their field and feel like I could
contribute a lot. I would enjoy working with them.

What percentage of equity should I expect in this deal?
