Seven Seven Six is ready to invite our first finance employee into the firm! This is a lead position that comes with a high level of responsibility and autonomy. As the first finance hire to the team, this is an incredible opportunity to establish the finance and compliance functions in collaboration with our fund administration team, legal teams, and other external partners. While the ideal candidate will be able to recruit and build an in-house team over time, the role today is very much hands-on and in the weeds of the work. We have built a lot since we launched this last year and are excited about growing the firm’s operations to help us build into this next chapter.
Your job every morning when you wake up is to manage the firm’s financial operations soup-to-nuts to ensure that the partnership can focus on best supporting our founders. It starts and stops with our founders.
As for you, finance is your passion. It’s not a career concession or a job you took to make your parents happy. You dream in numbers and you know your work is critical to the success of any company. You chose finance and finance chose you.
This job IS:
✅ All numbers, all the time. Compliance is cool, too.
✅ Obsessing over spreadsheets, invoices, investment details, taxes, capital calls, balancing budgets, forecasting, distribution notices, and the latest compliance protocols.
✅ Managing every detail and dynamic of our relationships with our external firm operations partners. Workflows to call-backs to term sheets — you know just the right person to tag in and how to ensure they’re set up for success. You know how to hold both yourself and our partners accountable to producing high-quality work on deadline and on (under?!) budget.
✅ Crossing every “t” and dotting every “i”. No one is better at triple-checking details than you!
✅ An incredible opportunity to work at a firm that understands our industry is changing very quickly and wants to play a key role in shaping the future of venture capital.
This job is NOT:
❌ Deal sourcing. We’ve been fortunate enough to have more dealflow than we can manage. We need you focused 100% on keeping our firm’s finances tight and ready to spring into action when a hot deal is on the table.
❌ Politics or ass-kissing. High impact team members don’t have time to play games and prefer to let their results and behaviors speak for themselves.
❌ A stepping stone to an investing position at the firm. We seek someone for whom this exact role is their dream job. The role will naturally expand with our collective success as a firm, with limitless new responsibilities and opportunities within the finance realm. We want to find the person that has found their path and absolutely loves what they do.
❌ Building out an internal fund administration team. We’re a small team and prefer to keep it that way as long as we’re able.
