Hacker News, the social network known for its massive amounts of geeky geek news, has posted a post about an option on its site that would allow employees to purchase stock options from an “independent” firm.
Hacker News is the second of the major platforms to post a stock option post, following a post by Snapchat that went live on January 10.
The stock option posts from Hacker News and Snapchat have been highly popular.
However, Hacker News’ announcement does not offer any details about the company’s plans for this option, nor does it reveal whether the option would be for the public or a private position.
“This is an exciting opportunity for you and your family to own a small business.
We’re giving you the chance to be part of a team of independent professionals who can help you build a great product,” the post reads.
The Hacker News stock option is available to employees for $10,000 a year, with the option to buy up to five shares at $10 per share, as well as unlimited stock options.
A Hacker News spokesperson said that Hacker News does not sell stock, but that it has plans to sell stock options in the future.
Hacker news has been heavily criticized for not disclosing its stock options, and it is not the only major tech company to post stock option announcements.
Facebook’s stock option was first posted on March 10, and Twitter’s stock options were first posted in October.
Both companies’ stock options are listed on their platforms.
