The right person will have deep expertise in structured finance and will be tasked with developing a short and long-term debt capital strategy that will support our dynamic, rapidly growing organization.

What you'll do.

  • Lead execution of capital transactions: identify underwriting/agent partners, manage the development of critical economics and terms, identify key lending partners, and execute funding. 
  • Work closely with the Finance Team to match capital needs to operational forecast and report on covenant obligations of capital structure. 
  • Work closely with internal and external legal counsel to develop legal documents mirroring developed terms. 
  • Work across company leadership to establish management presentations and diligence materials as needed. 

What we're looking for.

  • Experience in capital markets either at an investment bank or finance lead on capital raise in a corporate environment. 
  • Experience negotiating terms on large transactions with top tier lending partners. 
  • Project management experience including internal and external stakeholders/advisors and cross-functional teams often with little finance/capital markets understanding. 
  • Experience with and fluency in debt documentation and the ability to manage outside counsel and work closely with internal counsel. 
  • Experience developing corporate management presentations, excellent communication and power-point skills. 
  • Experience working in high growth Venture Capital or Private Equity-backed environment a plus. 
  • Comfort with uncertainty and rapidly evolving business assumptions. 
  • Professional with experience managing high-value external relationships either in an investment banking client management capacity or investor relations environment.
