Spark Capital is Hiring


We are hiring for two new positions at Spark Capital.  

One new role is an Analyst position.

We’re looking for someone to help us organize the collective knowledge of the firm and the portfolio using a combination of web services and entrepreneurial grit.  

The gig is probably most similar to a Product Manager role inside a small startup.  Being only eight people on the investment team, Spark is a bit of a startup of its own, and the analyst’s role would be to find help us scale our network, our internal reporting, and our effectiveness with portfolio companies’ management.

This role is a great way to learn what venture capital is all about.  It’s also a role that would require taking on incredible responsibility outside typical experience one day, and also handling very administrative basic tasks the next day; each of which are critically important to success in this job.

The other new role is an Associate.

The term “associate” means different things at different firms.  At Spark, here is how we define the role:

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, source new investment opportunities, due diligence potential investments, 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. The investment team at Spark is small so there is no clearly defined path or mentorship. You need to be ready to make your own way.

How to Apply:

If you’re interested in the Analyst position, throw your hat in the ring via this form.

If you think the Associate gig is your cup of tea, then get in touch with us here.

If you apply for one job and we think you’re a better fit for the other job, we will let you know and shift things around appropriately.  A good way to think about which role you fit best is work experience.  0-1 year experience is likely best for the Analyst role whereas 2-4 years is likely best for the Associate role.

I’m happy to answer any questions about these jobs in the comments, so hopefully the answers will benefit everyone.

We look forward to hearing from you…
