via JayLopez on stock.xchngPlenty of programmers would just as soon be hired by a startup than by any established company.

It’s an opportunity to help build the next Facebook, Groupon or Foursquare, rather than maintaining or improving upon someone else’s work.

This infographic from Monetate provides a great roadmap for any programmers looking into the startup world. Have you ever tried to get hired at a startup? Were you successful? Let us know in the comments.
