For over twenty years, RRE Ventures has been one of the premier venture capital firms in New York. We pride ourselves not only on investing in great entrepreneurs and delivering stellar returns to our investors but also on being supportive partners to our portfolio companies and active members of our community.
To deepen our engagement with both our companies and our community, RRE’s Investment Team is hiring an Analyst responsible for working closely with the partners of the firm and other senior professionals, sourcing new investments for the firm, supporting our existing portfolio companies, and assisting with other internal needs of the firm.
A great Analyst must work collaboratively with members of the investment, platform and operations teams, thrive in unstructured work environments, and take initiative to deliver value to the firm and our portfolio. The job will include assisting the partnership in all aspects of their daily activities, sourcing investments for the firm, conducting independent research on emerging spaces, supporting portfolio companies, and analyzing investment opportunities.
