Posted a year ago

We are looking for an Investment Professional with a keen interest in enterprise software, deep tech and entrepreneurship, including domains such as cybersecurity, AI/ML, dev tools and open source to join our London investment team. We are trying to find this one amazing person that complements our UK Investment team. You will be working closely with PratimaCarles and Theo. You will work alongside more senior investment team members on all things related to our portfolio companies, building new investment themes, getting involved in fund operations and collaborating with our teams in Germany and Spain. At Nauta, we are truly pan European with a team of 23 people distributed in three offices (Barcelona, London and Berlin) investing in Enterprise Software across Europe.

After your tenure at Nauta you will be a senior investment professional with strong business and technical foundations and a very valuable network in the industry. Whether you move up the ladder at Nauta, go to another VC, or decide to become an Entrepreneur, we will support you in your next steps and provide mentorship, advice and maybe funding for your next adventure.

In the past, our young talents have been quite successful after their tenures. Some have become partners at our firm, others have left to found their own VCs or have been poached by other VC firms (which we take as a compliment to our training). A few have decided to become Entrepreneurs. We supported and mentored them in their transition and funded their business together with our network of CEOs and angels.

Who we are looking for:

There are multiple paths and backgrounds that can lead to an Investment Professional position in VC. Below a few possibilities:

  • You have a computer science background: That is a great start! If you have some experience in a startup or founded a company already, even better.
  • You have a product background: You worked in or led product teams in a tech company. It could be in a startup, in a consultancy or in big tech. Your product experience can be super valuable in VC.
  • You have a business background: Awesome! you got the basics already 👍 We would like to know more about your technical knowledge and passion for software.
  • You have a Math/Physics/Biotech background: We have had good experiences with such profiles in the past.
  • You founded a company regardless of the outcome and now you are looking to gain some experience in VC: Pretty cool, let’s have a chat.
  • You have worked in investment banking/consulting: These are amazing places to get your first job, as you get lots of on-the-job training. We would love to chat more about your passion for VC.

What you will do day to day:

  • Sourcing new early-stage investments and general dealflow management
  • Evaluating new technologies, markets and business models. Identifying macro trends, conducting market research and developing new investment theses
  • Conducting due diligence on investment opportunities. Preparing investment memos, updates and presentations
  • Representing Nauta Capital at events and conferences

Additional Info:

We recognize that the last 22+ months have changed the way we work. At Nauta we have recognized the benefits that working from home have been able to offer. But at the core, our culture and business is built on having face-to-face interactions with the founders that we back and our colleagues. We are located in a beautiful penthouse office on Dean Street in the heart of soho with a view over London and a terrace. We currently have our teams coming into the office 3 days a week, with flexibility to choose their location of work for the other 2 days.

Our team gets together annually for a few days of relaxation, team building and comraderie. The last two annual trips were to Mallorca and Sitges.

We offer competitive compensation and flexible budgets for continuous learning.
