Better Ventures is Hiring an Operations and Community Manager

Better Ventures, an Oakland, CA-based venture firm that backs entrepreneurs building a better world, is hiring an Operations and Community Manager.  We recently closed a $21M second fund, and we are adding an integral team member to support the growth of our portfolio and increase our capacity to service our portfolio companies.  First and foremost, this position is responsible for the operational aspects of our investing and portfolio management activities including managing and tracking new investment opportunities, organizing due diligence and drafting deal memos, investor reporting, interfacing with bookkeepers and auditors, calendaring and contact management, and any other administrative tasks necessary to keep our engines running.  Secondarily, the position also includes community-facing responsibilities such as event planning and logistics for our PreSeed startup support and deal-sourcing platform, building community within our founder network, social media and PR, and managing our website content.  The Operations and Community Manager will work directly with the two managing directors of Better Ventures and with our portfolio company founders. 

We are seeking an energetic and relentlessly resourceful “Jack/Jill of all trades” with a positive attitude who is willing to roll up his or her sleeves and get the job done, no matter what it takes.  The ideal candidate will possess both an entrepreneurial mindset to work effectively with little oversight and a mastery of details to seamlessly execute on all operational logistics.  Prior experience in operations, project management, program management, administration, running an accelerator, and/or starting a company is essential, while strong connections to the UC Berkeley founder ecosystem is a big plus.  This is a rare early-career opportunity for someone who is passionate about startups and venture capital to join an up-and-coming venture firm and be a significant contributor to take our work to the next level.  This is a full-time position based in Oakland, CA.  Please apply only through a referral to Wes Selke or Rick Moss.
