larger company in same domain as my microISV speaks of hiring me

Recently I have been contacted by a larger company in the same area as the software produced by my small microISV. Of course they have a range of software, whereas we just have one product.

They want to talk more and say they want to hire good developers. Of course it is nice that someone has seen our (my) product and liked it enough to contact me about a potential job offer. But then again everytime micro-ISV has a sale it is a similar vote of confidence, but in a different kind of way.

Any advice? What should I be looking out for?

Sounds like they want to stop your app to me. Tread carefully. Don't sign anything that says you can't continue your app or that part or all of it belongs to them if they hire you.

Meet them to see what they want. You don't have to commit to anything.
