WHO WE ARE

Sandpiper Ventures (www.sandpiper.vc) is a Venture Capital firm investing in women-led Canadian innovation. We empower transformation for undetected innovators who are building high-growth companies. We seek women founders solving challenges for the future of work and education, environment and communities, and health and wellbeing. We are here to generate returns and growth, for our investors and our Canadian founders.
To fully engage in the dynamic ecosystem, Sandpiper Ventures is hiring a Senior Investment Analyst in British Columbia.

The Sandpiper Ventures Senior Investment Analyst manages all investment considerations being made by the Sandpiper Investment Committee and General Partners. You will work directly on all aspects of day-to-day fund operations and activities from fundraising to pipeline and portfolio company support.

 

SPECIFICALLY, YOU WILL

  • Lead in aspects of due diligence on new investments (business analysis, industry thesis, competitive landscape, business/pricing model, and financial modeling / deal structuring)
  • Read/review business plans and pitch decks
  • Assess market/company attractiveness to help identify compelling businesses
  • Work in a strategic capacity with Sandpiper Ventures’ existing portfolio companies as needed
  • Prepare market analyses and presentations to drive investment decisions and for engagement with the firm’s extensive network of corporate relationships
  • Will participate in and be asked to contribute to weekly internal meetings in which new investments and portfolio companies are discussed

WHO YOU ARE

We are looking for someone with 5 years relevant experience in corporate financial, financial planning and analysis, investment banking or something similar. You have a relevant undergraduate degree and have your CPA or are working towards it. You have an interest in early- stage technology ecosystem and start-ups and perhaps experience within the ecosystem.

You’re someone who loves analysis and data and can clearly communicate the implications of all that you read and evaluate. You love to use Excel and other tools to dig into data and discover hidden nuggets of information. Along with that, you can interpret this information to provide recommendations and clear analysis of the situation at hand. You have strong verbal and written skills and demonstrated ability to produce and deliver clear and concise oral, written, and PowerPoint presentations.

You listen to founders and ask probing questions, to get to the source of their success and uncover areas on which to focus. You’ll identify the “why” behind their organization and determine if it aligns with Sandpiper’s investment thesis.

As we’re a small and mighty team, we look for you to have excellent organization skills, be detail-oriented, and have a self-starter mentality. We want you to take initiative and work independently, sometimes remotely. We are an “all hands” sort of organization and hope you are too! Even if you don’t have all the requirements listed in this position, you may be the right candidate. If you are a leader with a strong attention to detail with financial analysis experience and expertise, we want to hear from you. Take a chance and apply. Tell us how you can make a difference.

We are a predominantly virtual organization with the ability to gather face-to-face regularly and as needed. We believe in supporting individuals at all stages of their careers. And we provide flexibility and understanding of the need to integrate all aspects of life into who you are when you’re part of the Sandpiper team.

The salary is competitive and will be discussed with our short-listed candidates. Sandpiper Ventures also offers a full group benefits package (medical / dental for you and family) plus STIP / LTIP, generous vacation allotment, and a flexible working environment. This is a full-time, contract position covering maternity leave / parental leave.

Our recruitment approach mirrors our investment thesis – we welcome and actively recruit candidates who reflect the diversity of our country and our founders.

Disability-related accommodations during the application process are available – just let us know what you might need.
