The Firm:

Our Client is a multi-stage private equity and venture capital firm specializing in communications, media, and information technology (“CMT”) investments. The firm is sector focused, but largely stage agnostic, and has pursued opportunities ranging from seed funding to distressed asset purchases.

The Role:

The Associate will be a member of the Investment Team and supports the firm in all aspects of its investment process.

The Associate will have the opportunity to take on board observer roles with the firm’s portfolio companies.

A variety of backgrounds will be considered for the position but preference will be given to candidates with CMT experience in any of the following fields:

  • Investment banking or equity research

  • Product management, marketing or corporate development



Given the dynamic nature of the investment process, the Associate is expected to be a resourceful self-starter with the ability to work effectively with both teams and independently, in an unstructured environment. The ideal candidate will have:

  • 2-4 years of full time work experience (as of Summer 2017)
