"Applicants must be prepared to take a cut in salary compared to their
market worth..."

Don't like that bit. :)

I have seen this in interviews before, but never quite so boldly stated.
Times must be rough.

It's a startup. That's where the section about getting boat loads of
stock in lieu of salary comes in.

Understood - usually, though, they save that hook for after they have
you intrigued by the company. Ideally, you are so interested in the
product and company that you are almost ready to work for nothing.

For most startups, said stock is worthless a few years later, so
building the enthusiasm is a darn good idea.
