Something that worked for me was early startups (those who still haven't got series A funding) your way to go you will gain a lot of experience in a short time. But beware at this stage companies are always looking to exploit their employees not intentionally always but things are so tight and fast pace they're always trying to get the most out of you, work-life balance doesn't exist at this stage. It's all up to you, I'm getting a little underpaid but it not a lot, and my priorities have always been learning and growth opportunities in my 20s, so Im okay with it. Just make sure how you manage stress in such environment and don't let things get out of your control, because stress is something else. It affects your health in ways we can't see.
