Join Kima: we’re hiring a Deal Associate

We’re looking to grow our team with two new Associates; a Deal Associate to help with making and managing investments and a Tech Associate (see here) to help with working on the technology and tools we use to do the same. Based in Paris, or remote. We see these as 2 year roles which will prepare you for continuing working in venture capital or for founding a startup yourself.

  • identifying and evaluating potential investments: responding to the entrepreneurs that contact us but also proactively searching for the best new startups, contacting them, taking calls or meetings, market and competitor research and due diligence;
  • deal execution: managing the process of closing financings;
  • providing on-boarding and ongoing support to portfolio companies as they grow;
  • developing new internal projects to better leverage the portfolio to support the companies in a scalable way.
  • demonstrated passion for early-stage technology startups; ideally through experience working for technology startups as a founder or employee;
  • obsession with new technologies and an interest in learning the intricacies of venture capital financing and the legal side of making investments;
  • familiarity with major tech ecosystem companies, individuals, and events and an active contributor in your local startup community;
  • empathy, a respect for entrepreneurship and the ability to represent Kima well when networking and meeting founders;
  • strong analytical skills and intellectual curiosity;
  • exceptional work ethic, comfortable working independently and quickly in an entrepreneurial environment;
  • proficient spoken and written English. Other languages, French in particular, are a bonus.
