10-15% is fine, depending on how much coding he's doing and how much animation/art he needs. Plus, chances are he's taking care of getting the game out there to make money, while all you have to do is the art and animation. Come to think of it, on top of the coding, the website, the concept, and the cash, Jubi Games is also giving you the option to join the website if they like your work, which would mean more compensation on other games. I'd imagine have a 15% stake in multiple games wouldn't be a very bad deal.
That WOULD be fine and dandy, if Jubi Games was even a well known game site, but seriously, look at this:
They have NO PUBLICITY WHATSOEVER. 10-15% would JUST be from what the sponsor gives. So imagine this. You do all of the art and animation. He codes it. He gets a musician for 10-15% probably as well (or less) and then what? Well, he keeps the rest of course!
A sponsor might pay 8,000 for the game, but you would only see 800-960 dollars of it. Same or less for the musician. That means that he would get anywhere from 6200-6600 dollars, all for himself. While this may not reflect the actual worth of this potential game, it certainly shows how unfair this deal is. Art and animation is no joke. If you have any sort of quality in your work, it takes hours and hours and hours to complete just one animation sometimes.
Now, if this was an official flash game by EA, or some other very high publicity sponsor, then I would say go ahead. 10% would probably be like 6,000 dollars at least. (they would offer flat sum, but you get my point)
