Founders Associate to Managing Partner (m/f/d)

We are looking for a passionate Founders Associate to support our Managing Director.

As a Founders Associate, you will be:

  • getting behind-the-scenes access and direct exposure to the Managing Partner’s affairs, way of thinking and network
  • managing external and internal projects working cross-functionally
  • dealing with a multitude of different professionals, hence you need to exercise a high level of confidentiality and discretion
  • managing and prioritising the day-to-day calendar and email
  • coordinating meetings, events, travel in a timely matter - and, sometimes, travel alongside our MD
  • administrative tasks and errands.


  • up to two years of experience in consulting, advisory/accounting (Big4 or similar), investment banking, VC/PE or similar backgrounds
  • a great academic track record and a university degree
  • well-defined organisational and time management skills, including strong execution ability in a high-performance environment
  • flexibility and willingness to work extended hours are expected as sometimes this is a role around the clock
  • easily adaptable to last-minute changes
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills in German and English
  • VC experience is a plus.
