About the Company

Square Peg is a global investment firm on a mission to empower exceptional founders. With teams in Singapore, Melbourne, Sydney and Tel Aviv, Square Peg invests in emerging technology companies across the internet economy. We were founded on the belief that technology would transform every industry in the world - and that brilliant, ambitious founders would sit at the heart of this change. We’re squarely focused on helping these founders succeed.

Square Peg has over US$2.6 billion in assets under management across its venture capital, opportunities and global listed equities funds. In addition, we’ve delivered material realised returns of US$0.6 billion. Since 2012 we have invested in over 65 companies including Fiverr, Canva, Rokt, Stripe, FinAccel, Tomorrow, and Airwallex.

About the role

Day to day you’ll nurture relationships with founders across South-East Asia. You will identify and analyze emerging trends and investment opportunities, work on making investments, and partner with our founders to help make them successful. You’ll work shoulder-to-shoulder with our global investment team.

In the role, you will;

  • Be exposed to new industries and ideas that reshape the world
  • Engage with exceptional founders doing their life’s work, as well as other members of the tech ecosystem
  • Be part of a global, multi-disciplinary team and an open, collaborative, and meritocratic work environment where you're empowered to take ownership.

At heart, you’re curious. You’re driven to understand complex concepts and love learning how founders and teams build high-growth technology companies. You have a mental model for understanding what makes good companies different from extraordinary companies. You’re empathetic about the founder journey, and can build relationships and establish trust.

You know that happy people do their best work and like contributing in a team environment that prizes high ownership and accountability.  You see alignment with our team’s values: be yourself, anchor to optimism, be bold, empower through trust and unleash curiosity.

You have:

  • A passion for technology!
  • Demonstrable research and analytical experience that could be applied to analyzing investment opportunities (e.g. market, competitor, and product evaluation)
  • Fluent in written and spoken English
  • Familiarity with Microsoft or GSuite productivity tools, especially Word, Slides, and Excel-equivalents
  • Strong relationship-building and influencing skills
  • A growth mindset paired with a strong work ethic and ownership mentality
  • Experience in South-East Asia or a strong affinity to the region.


Square Peg is a people-first working environment.  We encourage flexible/remote work and provide beautiful team facilities in our global offices. We also organize regular team-building events, to bring our global team together while promoting a culture of fun and wellness.

Special benefits include;

  • Flexible work policy
  • 18 weeks of paid parental leave for both primary and secondary carers
