Hiring an Analyst at Spark Capital

We’re hiring for an Analyst at Spark.  You can find the full job description and application link here.  

I entered the venture capital industry through an Analyst program, so I can say from first-hand experience, it’s a great way to way to learn about venture capital, while also meeting hundreds of the world’s next Wozniaks.  I learned more in my two years as an Analyst than I did in all of college, and I came out the other side with a great network.

Regarding our hiring process, I believe strongly in transparency.  I’ll post updates on this blog occasionally about where we are in the process, and I will also email candidates directly when relevant.  Our plan right now is that we’re going to accept applications online for the next 2-3 weeks.  After that point we’ll cut off new applications and work though everything we received all at once. From that pool of applications I plan to ask qualified applicants to submit a simple webcam video answering a few questions.  After reviewing the videos, we’ll then dig into interviewing people in person.  

If you know of someone you think would be a good fit for this job, please encourage them to apply.
