We are looking to hire an investor to join our consumer investment team at Greylock. This is an ideal position for someone with 3–8 years of experience who is looking to get 2–3 years of experience on the investing side before heading back into operations at a tech company. The position will be based in Menlo Park and San Francisco, but will include travel to wherever the most exciting startups are located, as well as attendance at events, and more.
As a key member of the consumer investing team, you’ll help Greylock invest in early stage startups that will become great technology companies. You will actively participate in all stages of the investment process: from identifying and evaluating investment opportunities to working side by side with our general partners and the entrepreneurs after we back a company. You’ll do deep diligence on companies we are looking at, as well as spend time sourcing and advocating for companies you are personally excited about. In addition, you will have the chance to work with companies across our portfolio.
The person in this role is not expected to lead deals, but will be deeply involved through the entire deal process extending to supporting the companies we back through growth. You will have the opportunity to work with the entire partnership, and will be mentored specifically by Josh Elman and Sarah Tavel. (We both spent several years in venture before becoming partners so we know what the role entails and want to help you succeed.)
For our consumer investments, we love looking for networks, platforms, and marketplaces that can create businesses with large moats. These companies can be in any consumer sector — wherever consumers spend their time and money.
