You love considering growth strategies, leadership teams and markets and 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 accountability. You see alignment with our team’s values: be yourself, anchor to optimism, be bold, empower through trust and unleash curiosity.

  • Curiosity and a desire to learn
  • Autonomy and ownership
  • Confidence in framing and performing analysis to feed decisions

On any given day, you could be:

  • Researching themes, emerging trends and ideas.
  • Finding and meeting new founders of technology companies
  • Engaging with programs, people and leaders across the Australian tech community to nurture and grow the ecosystem
  • Working on a project with a portfolio founder or executive to level up a function
  • Helping the team to conduct due diligence on investment opportunities
  • Be involved in supporting teams at our portfolio companies with their most important issue

Ready to apply?

We are open to speaking with anyone who fits this role, though we suspect having 5-7 years of experience in technology investing or working in high-growth companies is the ideal training ground.
