We are Accomplice (formerly known as Atlas Venture), an early stage tech venture firm. Some of the companies we’ve backed are AngelList, DraftKings, PillPack, Hopper, and Carbon Black. We invest in truly special entrepreneurs who are building and changing industries. Areas where we’ve specialized include cybersecurity, eSports, data analytics, SMB/SaaS software, emerging hardware platforms, and marketplaces
We closed our tenth fund of $212 million in March 2015, the first under our new identity as Accomplice. We’re headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts with an office in San Francisco. Today we make ~50% of our investments in the Boston area, 25% in Canada/NYC/elsewhere, and 25% on the West Coast. Our West Coast efforts to date have centered around Maiden Lane, the first online venture fund. We launched the initiative in partnership with AngelList, in which we are the first and largest investor.
ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES
We’re looking for a Principal/Partner to build upon investment practice in Boston. You’ll be growing portfolio, brand, and influence for both the firm and yourself. We’re an eclectic team of personalities at Accomplice, but we share a deep curiosity to understand new technology, an authenticity in our dealings with entrepreneurs, and a dedication to this firm.
Self-starters thrive at Accomplice; we’ll entrust you with a lot. On new deals, that includes networking, sourcing, assessing, diligence, negotiating, and writing checks. On portfolio companies, that includes working closely with your founders and boards. You’ll have autonomy and thus must be self-motivated (but with a team team orientation), with a flexible and collaborative style, and be deal-focused with a sense of urgency.
Some signs you’re a fit: you’re the kind of person who can read people and motivations, is always on top of news in the areas you’re passionate about, can quickly grasp the important aspects of new concepts, and thinks analytically and critically about solving problems.
