We’re looking for an associate

We are looking to hire an associate at Spark.

The title “associate” means different things at different venture capital firms so let me tell you what it means at Spark.

An associate at Spark is part of our investment team in our Boston office. He or she will help our team with market & competitive analysis, process deal flow, due diligence on new investment opportunities, assist our portfolio companies, attend & organize meetups as well as various other firm responsibilities such as annual reports and portfolio analysis.

This is not a classic two year and out program. We are looking for someone that will grow with us or possibly join one of our portfolio companies over time.

Ideal person:

-excellent communication & listening skills
-passion for new technologies
-an active user of web and mobile applications
-thoughtful about the ever changing media & technology landscape
-aggressive, self starter
-strong analytical skills
-tech background plus but not required
-based in boston or willing to move here
-ideal previous experience (~2-4years) could include: startup, internet/technology company, analytical/financial role in related industries
-(mba not required)
