JOB DESCRIPTION

As an Associate on the Mergers & Acquisitions ("M&A") team, you are responsible for all aspects of the investing process, with a focus on evaluating and buying attractive new SaaS companies for ASG. This role is both analytical and strategic. You will proactively analyze industries and companies to asses their attractiveness for ASG and ASG's existing portfolio companies. As deal process "go live", you will own the modeling and analysis of the deal, partner with the M&A team and cross-functional partners to project-manage the process, attend onsite diligence visits with business executives, and present deals to our investment committee.

We are a small team, have a flat organization, and deeply believe in giving our junior members a lot of responsibility.

You’re Excited About This Opportunity Because You Will:

  • Play a key role in our investing process and take on a lot of responsibility for evaluating and closing deals
  • Participate in the M&A strategy and inorganic growth of our portfolio companies
  • Sharpen your deal acumen. We have a “deal-forward” culture with a track record of closing over a dozen deals each year
  • Work in a fun, entrepreneurial, and people-focused culture

We’re Excited About You Because:

  • You are interested in investing, particularly software investing
  • You love diving into industries and becoming the expert in the companies and industries you cover
  • You possess a proactive, solution-oriented, problem-solving mindset -- “I’ll figure it out.”
  • You are a fast learner and a hard worker; you have a strong work ethic and are present
  • You are a strong communicator, can think on your feet, and can present ideas clearly and direct
  • You have a low ego and the ability to take feedback
  • You thrive in team environments and prefer winning as a team vs. individually.
  • You thrive in a small, growing, fast-paced, results-oriented environment.

Minimum requirements:

  • 1-3 years of finance or investing experience (investment banking or private equity experience preferred)
  • Strong analytical abilities and finance modeling skills
  • Strong interest in software companies

Base Salary Range: The target salary range for this position is $115,000-$130,000 and is part of a competitive total rewards package including an annual bonus, employer-paid benefits, L&D stipend and incentive pay for eligible roles. Individual pay may vary from the target range and is determined by a number of factors including experience, location, internal pay equity, and other relevant business considerations. We review all employee pay and compensation programs annually at minimum to ensure competitive and fair pay.
