We are regularly posting about the amazing hires our portfolio companies are making, but in a welcome twist, it’s our turn!
As we enter our 10th year, investing out of our 7th fund and supporting a global portfolio of over 60 companies, we are in our own growth-mode at Jump. We are excited to officially announce the addition of a few new members to our team:
- Austin Chung, Vice President: Austin joins Jump Capital with a considerable amount of vertical SaaS investment experience as well as a technical background in scalable software design, having spent time implementing complex data infrastructure, distributed systems, and deep learning algorithms at both academic research labs and large technology companies. As Vice President, Austin is our go-to resource for founders with bold visions of building businesses in the cybersecurity, developer tooling, cloud/data infrastructure, and blockchain sectors.
- Will Nunez, Associate: Will joins Jump Capital with rich experience in big data and analytics platforms. His past experienced focused on researching and implementing emerging software, along with developing scalable data products across consulting, cyber security, finance, law and sports/entertainment domains. In his new role, he will work across our investing areas leading research, data collection, and analytic efforts while working closely with the investment team on identifying unique sectors and identifying innovative founders.
Alongside the growth of our investment team, we would like to officially welcome Robb Hutchins, who late last year stepped into the role of Vice President of Growth for Jump’s portfolio support platform.
- Robb Hutchins, Vice President of Growth: As a former member of the Corporate Business Development team at Amazon, Robb supported various Amazon business teams by structuring and negotiating complex, first-of-their-kind strategic partnerships. Robb is well-equipped to amplify Jump’s portfolio companies’ growth objectives with critical network introductions and collaborating on business development strategies.
Look out for follow-up posts from Austin, Robb, and Will on their areas of focus and thoughts about how we work with founders.
And we are still on the lookout for an Investment Associate to add to our team. As an Associate, you will engage in a broad range of activities, including: supporting our investment process (market research, analysis, etc.), supporting the Jump portfolio companies and community (research, recruiting, events, introductions, etc.), and representing Jump at various industry events and within the startup ecosystem.
The ideal candidate has a strong point of view on emerging technologies and business models, has a tendency to go deep when researching ideas, knows their way around a spreadsheet, and has experience in financial modeling. We are looking for self-starters with a passion for technology, entrepreneurship and all things startups. Top candidates will have 2 to 3 years of experience working at a VC firm, a tech company or in tech services such as tech-focused investment banking or consulting.
