Playfair Capital is one of Europe’s leading early-stage VC funds. We’ve been around since 2013 and have invested in over 50 startups to-date. We’re sector and geography agnostic but are particularly interested in deep tech.

We're a small, close-knit team of tech enthusiasts with a passion for building early stage technology businesses. We have created a fun, casual work environment but at the same time we favour fast-paced, bold decision making.

We’re busier than ever - having recently launched our £25m second fund - and are looking to add some firepower to the team. As such, we’re seeking a technical investment associate to come on board and help drive our investment activities.

Things You’ll Do

As a member of our investment team you’ll be exposed to all of the steps in the VC value chain (including origination, evaluation, deal execution and portfolio support), with a particular focus on originating deep tech deals and performing technical due diligence. Specifically you’ll:

Evaluate deals through a detailed process of technical due diligence to help the team build investment cases for particular deals
When necessary, engage industry experts to help support our technical due diligence efforts
Track and analyse technologies, markets and companies that are relevant to our investment focus (machine learning, computer vision, robotics, IoT, etc.)
Produce detailed research reports on specific technologies
Attend demo days, pitching competitions, industry events and generally network and build relationships with engineers all over the world in search of the best deals
Host events and produce content to boost Playfair’s reputation
