You will work as an integral part of the investment team – helping us determine where to focus our efforts, and driving robust, analytically-driven investment decisions. The role requires deep curiosity about technology and the venture ecosystem; the ability to learn fast; and the vision to articulate the path from an idea to a billion-dollar business.

  • Nurture collaboration and help educate our team with your insights
  • Publish Mosaic’s research and thought leadership via blog posts, events with founders and industry experts, and social media

Requirements

  • 2-6 years of work experience in consulting, software equity research, strategic planning, research-led investing (VC or PE), product/ operating roles in a startup or leading tech business
