Role Summary

Our Consumer team is looking for a passionate, hard-working individual to join our investment team as part of a two-year Associate program. Our Associates conduct industry research, source potential investment opportunities, perform rigorous due diligence, and support our portfolio companies. We are technical investors that like to dive deep into segments of the market where we believe technology can be most transformative. Our team-first approach means Associates are expected to not only investigate themes by talking to companies, potential founders, and domain experts but also effectively share their findings by modeling out scenarios, testing assumptions, synthesizing their learnings, and iterating with the team’s feedback. Our Associates gain exposure to our networks and deal processes, and have the opportunity to source, underwrite, and support multiple promising consumer investments each year.

  • Crunching the numbers, analyzing business fundamentals, building useful models
  • Making smart, informed bets and constantly learning from them
  • Building new things and iterating on them quickly and openly

  • People who “elevate the room” through their work ethic, curiosity, and attitude
  • Great team players who care about and contribute to a thriving team culture

  • Outgoing – You’re always on the move, connecting, learning, communicating, and sharing
  • Ownership – You take charge of your work, uphold your commitments, and never drop the ball
  • Prioritization – You focus on what matters most and wait on the rest; you’re great at thoughtfully saying no to others

  • Communications – You have excellent listening, verbal, and written communication skills
