Montreal, Quebec - Permanent
Our client incubates and funds companies. Unconstrained by industry, they originate the ideas, hire the early teams, fund, launch, and grow each company, and maintain an integral leadership role from beginning through exit.
They have collectively raised more than $2B in venture capital and employ thousands of people. On the investment side, they are one of the most active early stage funds.
You’ll be working on a small team and you may be on your own sometimes, but it’s important that you be a team player who likes to talk through problems with others and share knowledge. As one of their first hires, you’ll be a huge contributor to setting the tone and culture for the Montreal office (virtual, for now).
They are looking for applicants who are located in Montreal or are hoping to be located in Montreal full-time when offices cease to be a COVID-19 hazard. Their ideal start date is ASAP
