About the Role

This is a full time role.

We’re looking for someone with a true passion for Web3, startups, technology and shaping the future. You will become an integral part of our investment team and be involved in the entire process from sourcing, to investment, to working with our projects and helping them to succeed. You will be based in Sydney but will travel within Australia and beyond, as well as attend events and more.

What You’ll do

Your primary role will be to source new crypto investments and work along our partners through the lifecycle of the investment process. Working together with the Partners at AirTree, you will:

  • Source new early stage, private crypto opportunities
  • Build and contribute to important and emerging communities
  • Help us develop a prepared mind about emerging frontiers (e.g. DeFi in 2018, NFTs in 2020) through research and market mapping
  • Work with the Partners on the full lifecycle of investments: conduct diligence, monitor and help the portfolio, successfully divest
  • Represent AirTree at events and in the broader tech ecosystem
  • Build and maintain great relationships with various stakeholders and help us build on our reputation for being a founder-friendly partner to some of the most successful projects
