We are looking for a self-driven and fast-learning person, who will join our team in London as a VC Analyst and may eventually grow into a Partner at Runa Capital. It is a great opportunity for those, who would like to break into the VC world or already gain initial VC industry experience.

Runa Capital

Our best early-stage bets turned into such companies as Mambu ($5.5B last round valuation), Zopa ($1B), Nginx ($0.7B, exit), Ecwid ($0.5B, exit), Pasqal and Brainly. Since the foundation in 2010, we invested in 100+ startups, completed 30+ exits and learned a bit about VC & startups 🙂

We are open-minded, entrepreneurial and tech-savvy. Runa’s co-founders built a few global tech companies (Acronis, Paralells, Acumatica, etc), and inside Runa, we love to build tech-based things too. For instance, our team created its own data platform, a popular repo (14K+ Github stars) and publishes and index of open-source startups.

Runa attracts self-driven people and provide them with a high level of freedom. Such approach bears spectacular fruit: three of Runa’s former associates became its General Partners (Dmitry, Konstantin, Michael), two are Partners at other VC funds in London (Atomico, Begin Capital), and two founded their own VC firms in Silicon Valley (1confirmation, Day One Ventures).

We regularly meet in person in Europe but are spread between Palo Alto, New York, London, Paris, Barcelona, Luxembourg, Berlin, Sofia and Singapore. Our UK team usually work from a new office located in the heart of London (Huckletree Oxford Circus).
