I have been getting requests followed by interviews, where I can easily deduce that the founders and their co-founder(s) want me to work for free now to build an MVP but expect me to say "remember my effort" so that when things start flying / some funding comes in, compensate me then with equity or money.

Does that sound absurd to others here as well or is that something I expect from most of the folks here?

I am willing to work on a MVP, put in the required hours if not full time, but not for free. I understand that cash may not be there pre-funding, but at least offer a 5% equity (if all works out), even if you are approaching me as an employee and NOT as a co-founder.
