- Source, pre-qualify, and evaluate investment opportunities that match Edison’s investment strategy

Ideal candidates will have an undergraduate degree, and at least 2-3 years of experience working in investment banking, venture capital, private equity, management consulting with a technology focus, and/or with a startup or growth-stage technology company. We’re looking for professionals with not only financial chops, but also business maturity, strong interpersonal skills and salesmanship. A large portion of the role involves finding viable investment candidates, intelligently talking to CEOs and “selling” Edison’s value add. You should be someone who:
