VC Analyst @ Eniac Ventures in New York City, NY

At Eniac, we invest in the outliers — the Authentic, the Bold, the Curious, the Scrappy. We model our team after the same philosophy, and now we’re looking to bring on a new team member who also exemplifies our “ABCs.”

Eniac leads seed rounds across consumer, enterprise, and deep tech. We make a relatively concentrated number of investments each year into high conviction founders and their companies. Now, after 10 years and four funds, we’re looking to expand our team with an analyst to support our research capabilities and investment process.

Position Overview

The position is a two-year program based in New York City. We want a team member with a balance of analytical rigor and strong communication skills who is ready to play a key role in the research and due diligence process.

This is not a sourcing role, but rather the opportunity to learn a deep and rigorous approach to evaluating investment opportunities. We view this as a unique opportunity within venture — instead of having you focus on meeting and filtering through thousands of startups, we hope to help you develop a muscle for understanding and identifying what makes a good investment.

While honing in on this skill as a research analyst, you will also have full exposure to all parts of the venture capital process — including participating in weekly partner meetings, observing board meetings, and having one on one mentorship with all members of the Eniac team. You’ll learn the fundamentals of the business and gain insight into many innovative technology startups and markets. You’ll also get our full support to explore and develop the skills and experiences you’ll need to be successful in whatever you might want to pursue next.

Specific Responsibilities

  • Along with the help of the Eniac team, you will be performing market research and due diligence for potential investments, which will entail financial and analytics modeling, testing products and generating industry landscapes.
  • This includes performing primary due diligence. We want a self-starter who feels comfortable reaching out cold to industry stakeholders, trying out products, collecting customer feedback, and conducting any other form of research that might be useful.
  • You will then encapsulate this research into a well-articulated and thorough investment memo to help support the team’s investment process. This means you should have the ability to quickly distill abstract ideas and large amounts of imperfect information down into thoughtful insights.
  • In addition to company-specific memos, you may also collaborate with other team members to explore and write investment theses on new and interesting markets.
  • Finally, as a scrappy member of the team you will also be asked to lend a hand on any other projects or activities where help is needed, including reporting for our investors, working with portfolio companies, and supporting firm operations such as marketing and fund administration.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Undergraduate degree
  • 1–3 years of prior experience, preferably at an equity research team, asset management firm, VC, or venture-backed startup
  • Prior experience conducting industry or company level due diligence
  • Strong writing skills with a focus on the ability to clearly and concisely articulate a complex thesis
  • Interest in learning more about the venture capital and technology markets
  • Must be legally authorized to work in the U.S.

We expect a tremendous amount from our Analyst, but we know it will be one of the most rewarding positions and opportunities to get started in the venture capital business.

Preferred start date is January 2021. To apply, please submit your resume and your answers to the following prompts:

1. How your past work and educational experience has prepared you to be an amazing analyst at Eniac

2. An industry trend that you’re interested in and why
