The role:
As a Venture Development Associate, you’ll work alongside key management on mission critical projects for one of the most exciting startup in Europe. No two days are the same but the following tasks will be part of your new role:

  • Using Excel and SQL wizardry to derive actionable insights for the team

  • You have impressive communication skills (written and verbal)
  • You are eager to learn and open to constructive criticism
  • You have high energy levels, flourish in a team environment and are ready to roll-up your sleeves
  • A degree (2:1 or above) in an analytical field (for example Science, Maths, Engineering, Economics, Business, Finance)

Beneficial but not essential:

  • You know core SQL and have an interest in mastering the fancy stuff
  • You have 1-2 years experience in investment banking or consulting (but personality is even more important so feel free to apply if it feels right)
  • You have an interest in startups or tech companies


  • Base salary dependent on experience
  • Receive share options in Catapult -> participate in the upside of a tech company
  • Get your own Macbook (feel free to use at home)
  • Join a fun and social team in a cool office. Bottomless Coke Zero, team lunches and regularly organised team mischiefs.

Let’s do this!
