Venture Capital Internal Processes Intern (f/m/d)

Berlin, Germany /
Intelligence /
We are constantly hiring interns for our middle office.

Foundamental is a global venture capital firm investing in construction, mining and renovation technology. We believe in making these industries autonomous and clean with technology and science. We’re backed by some of the world’s largest construction and materials companies, giving us privileged access to deep sector knowledge across markets. But we don't stop at disrupting the dusty processes in construction. We always challenge our internal processes and the way VCs work as well.

Here the middle office kicks in. It's our spider in the web that secures and improves information flow, enabling us to make better decisions. It's crucial to our success and fundamental to how we think a VC firm must work. If you like the idea of you being that spider and are not afraid of webs, scroll on and reach out!

Your mission. You know you are successful in the role when you...

    • Connect the information we collect in our investment processes with the performance of our investment decisions
    • Find and implement ways to measure the use of information in investment decisions. This is pioneering work and unique world-wide.
    • Use the insights you develop to constantly adjust our investment frameworks and investment processes.
    • Become the surveillance and control unit for Foundamental's internal data transfer
    • Curate undocumented and tacit information from within our organization and make sure the information gets distributed.
    • Push our data quality to the highest level and make sure to keep it up there.

You are a perfect fit if:

    • You find it easy to build highly logical and structured thoughts. First principles thinking feels intuitive to you.
    • You are a good observer and very detail-oriented but you process information in the context of the bigger picture. You find it easy to connect information where others don't see any links.
    • You are persistent and unstoppable. You consider it a personal defeat when you cannot get to a result you want to have.
    • You are fact driven and take ownership of your task, this also means you speak up and share your opinion and ideas.
    • You are not a good fit if you like to stay high level on topics, fear big data sets, you believe "done is done" and are hesitant to ask for information.

    • In other words: we always prefer the sum of IQ, EQ and mindset over experience. 
We will give you execution responsibility - no paper-pushing, no work for the drawer. Your work will have a direct impact on our organization and the way we work.

Location and timing: Berlin. We hire year-round. Whether you want to start next week or in 1 year. If you fit to us, we will create an opportunity that fits your plans. 

How to apply: We like it simple. You can apply by sending your CV and 3 short but precise bullet points of your motivation.
