Role Summary

Our Fintech team is looking for a passionate, hard-working person to join our investment team as a Vice President (VP). VPs lead industry research, investment due diligence, deal execution, and portfolio company monitoring. They are expected to be able to operate autonomously with minimal oversight. We are technical investors that like to dive deep into segments of the market where we believe technology can be most transformative. VPs are expected to build conviction in their search for future industry-leading fintech companies by talking to founders and domain experts throughout the ecosystem. They are also expected to effectively share their findings by modeling out scenarios, testing assumptions, synthesizing their learnings, and iterating with the team’s feedback. Our VPs gain exposure to our deal processes and have the opportunity to find, lead, and support multiple promising investments each year.
