At JAZZ, we back founders that extend the boundaries of human performance – improving how we live, learn, work, play, and experience the world. We seek breakthroughs at the intersection of digital technology and neuroscience that are influencing the human experience, such as augmented reality, artificial intelligence, immersive gaming, and closed-loop human-computer systems. Our portfolio companies are unlocking human potential in health, mind-body wellness, accelerated learning and training, sports, entertainment, and enterprise.
We believe that the companies we back can fundamentally and positively change our interaction with digital technology. Our companies have built the first FDA-approved video games, consumer products that can deliver complex interventions, and communities that encompass tens of millions of people.
JAZZ is based in San Francisco with offices in Los Angeles and Seattle.
At JAZZ, we value a culture of autonomy, humility, and open-mindedness. As an Associate at JAZZ, you will be a core member of the Partnership, where you’ll gain exposure to company building, from incubation to investing to working with founders. Additionally, you’ll learn about the venture business and contribute meaningfully to building JAZZ.
Our Associate program is designed to be a two-year role, where there will be a focus on (1) originating investment opportunities (2) supporting on investment decisions, (3) supporting internal strategic initiatives, and (4) developing and managing long term relationships with key stakeholders across consumer, deep technology, and health.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
This role is constructed so that the associate works closely with JAZZ’ Partners in multivariate projects. Given our distributed nature and many parallel streams, the ideal candidate will be a self-starter who thrives in an unstructured work environment. The role is designed for a candidate with 1-4 years of experience.
JAZZ is committed to diversity and we have prioritized building a team varied in experience, background, race, and gender. We believe in being contrarian, which begins with bringing fresh perspectives to the table that come from differentiated life experiences.
At JAZZ, we prioritize the long-term and gravitate towards candidates that similarly take a long-term view in their relationships, as we are a relationship business. We believe in a transparent and flat culture, where strong points of views and opinions are embraced.
Preference for candidates located in the Bay Area post-COVID19; flexible to current location.
Interested candidates should apply via this short survey here. We’ll review submissions by November 30th and follow up with a selected group of candidates for virtual interviews. The final group of candidates will be virtually interviewed by the rest of the team. We hope to complete the process by the end of the year with a planned start in early 2021.
