and deep tech, in Europe, China, the US and Israel;

Here are the skills you have:
• A great nose for important tech trends and emerging businesses in mobility, energy and deep tech;

• Strong financial analysis skills. You will be able to dive quickly into a business plan or financial model, identify and judge key drivers or vulnerabilities;
• While we will consider various backgrounds, we think a background in investment banking, consulting, venture investments, or an operations role in a tech company would be the strongest fits for this role;
• Keen attention to detail; deliberate and focused in execution;
• Excellent multitasking skills without dropping balls;
• Comfortable listening to, presenting, and disagreeing with investment points of view. Conviction without arrogance, humility without defeatism.
