Impact Engine

Chicago, IL, USA

Full time


Jan 19

We are an institutional impact investment firm dedicated to building the impact ecosystem since 2012. We invest in funds and companies across stages from seed to buyout, and always seek alignment between superior financial returns and measurable positive impact on economic opportunity, environmental sustainability, or health equity. This approach puts us at the center of the private market impact investing ecosystem, giving us unique access to differentiated deal flow and comprehensive insights.

We are a different type of asset manager. We don’t seek to benefit at the cost of others, but rather, we do well when our partners succeed, and we believe this approach leads to better results for everyone. We are building our firm to be on the vanguard of the next generation of asset management, which we believe will look like us. We are proudly women-owned and led with a highly diverse team, which has led to better decision-making and a much more diverse underlying portfolio than the industry. Firm values include authenticity, excellence, humility, resourcefulness, camaraderie, inclusivity, optimism, and determination.


As our scale, reach, and impact grow, we must also continue to invest in the excellence of our back office. This position will be a critical contributor across finance, operations, and investor relations functions. 

The areas of responsibilities will include but are not limited to: collecting and organizing impact, financial and other data for internal and external reporting, processing day to day financial documents to support the activities of the firm and our investment vehicles, managing requests from investors and prospective investors, and general office administration. You will not only execute specific tasks but also work with our team to build and improve our back office systems and infrastructure for the future.

Given the firm’s entrepreneurial culture, the ideal candidate is a self-starter that thrives in an independent yet collaborative work environment. You have to love what we do and the different kind of asset management firm we are building. You will report to and work closely with the Director of Finance & Operations. This position is based in Chicago.
