Job description

Start date: November 2021

Location: Berlin - Mitte


About us:

Established in 2010, we have built our way up to becoming a leading tech investor in Europe, with a portfolio of over 25 companies in different growth stages. Out of our Berlin-based office, we are investing in pre-seed, seed, late-seed, and series A companies in Europe. We are passionate about backing visionary, exceptionally talented but at the same time, humble founders and have been fortunate to work with founding teams of companies, such as Pipedrive, Stripe, Wandelbots, Detectify, Silexica, and many more. In total, we have backed over 50 companies in the last decade. Our approach as a VC is service-oriented, providing full support through a proactive partnership, such as operational help in core business development tasks and support in HR & recruiting processes.


We are a small and ambitious team that values a great working culture and whose daily work is characterized by flat hierarchies and open communication. Working alongside our Partners, you will get to know the exciting and highly challenging work of a Venture Capital fund in Berlin and will be in charge of your own projects from start to finish line.

  • You will help our portfolio companies to set up first people & culture and talent acquisition processes and structures, provide hands-on support in talent acquisition and also recommend & implement tools
  • You will be visiting our portfolio companies, working side-by-side with the Founders and the P&C and TA teams on both strategic and operational topics, gaining insights into their culture and helping them build healthy organizations
  • You will identify the best service providers (e.g. tool providers, job platforms, or headhunters) and negotiate portfolio deals for our portfolio companies
  • Over time, you will build a strong network and talent pool and continuously nurture relationships with top universities (business & tech) in Germany and the EU


You are the perfect fit if you:

  • are well organized, have excellent time management skills, and can easily juggle the needs of different stakeholders,
  • are passionate about recruiting and creating an amazing candidate experience,
  • are an effective communicator and natural relationship builder who can collaborate with a variety of work styles and personalities,
