I was wondering what documents I need to be able to hire an unpaid engineer that will be compensated in Vested equity and that most likely working remotely. Including intellectual property rights,etc.. I'm not sure what to classify them as unpaid intern or unpaid employee,etc..
I stated to them that I need help on building MVP and if we get investment then salary can be possible. Also to potentially hire them full time if they choose to do so, And I got numerous responses since they want to be part of something and can consider this as a side project until I get investment that they can take the risk to be fully on board.
What documents is needed and where would I find them?
also Any suggestions on project management software, tools to make sure technology is protected and backed up (from coding,etc..) I'm not too familar with github and how that works in regards to protecting IP
FYI I"m located in NY some of the potential engineers are located in NY, Delaware, Virginia and Boston. .
