  • Self-motivated and able to manage projects independently and to completion
  • Entrepreneurial drive and desire to help grow and develop a business with a flat hierarchy
  • Fast-moving, organized, and able to process a high volume of deals
  • Positive attitude and a sense of humor — you will need to embrace regular change as we are a continuously evolving, lean investment team
