What's the right compensation for a VP of engineering at a seed stage company (~$750k invested)?

We're shortly planning to raise a seed round of about $750k and are hiring a VP of engineering and a technical advisor.

Where might I find data on typical equity and salary compensation for seed stage companies?

It's not free, but I've found Venture Assembly to be really useful:
