Role Summary

The Point72 Ventures team is looking for a passionate, hard-working individual to join as two-year Associate to focus on growth-stage investments. Our Associates conduct industry research, identify and track potential investment opportunities, perform rigorous due diligence, help execute transactions, and monitor portfolio performance. 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 diligence and deal processes, and have the opportunity to find, underwrite, and support multiple promising investments each year.
