We're hiring in London!

As part of Northzone’s continuous growth, we are excited to expand our investment team in London with a new Associate. We are looking for outstanding individuals that have the intellect and the drive to find, win over and support the world’s best entrepreneurs – and who, like us, feel lucky to have such a rewarding job.

2023 is an exciting time to join the team. For one, we raised €1bn to invest in the next generation of changemakers from Seed to Growth, becoming a full-stack investor with transatlantic hubs, out of New York, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Stockholm. We’re excited to grow the team!

About the role

  • As an Associate, you will spend a large part of your time sourcing new deals and forming relationships with entrepreneurs in our target sectors and markets.
  • You will be on the deal team for new investments and support market, financial and commercial due diligence processes.
  • You will work individually and in team settings to develop new investment thesis in exciting new market segments which will lead to sector expertise over time. 
  • Provide support for our portfolio companies. You’ll get increased exposure to our portfolio as you spend time with us, but we’ll introduce relevant companies early on to involve you in the strategic work surrounding the portfolio.
  • You’ll represent Northzone in the startup ecosystem and assist in various internal activities across the firm, including fund strategy, LP reporting, and events.
  • While your base will be in London, you will work with colleagues across all of our offices. We think it’s important for the entire team to meet regularly and travel across offices multiple times per year. 
  • We encourage initiative-taking and over time, we will offer you the opportunity to leverage your increasing investor toolkit to assume early leadership in various aspects of life as an investor within Northzone.

About us

We’re an early-stage venture capital fund and since 1996, we have been chosen by exceptional entrepreneurs as a long-term partner for growth. So far, across ten fund generations we have invested in over 175 companies including category-defining businesses like Spotify, iZettle, Kahoot!, Trustpilot, Personio, as well as leaders in emerging sectors. 

Between the global climate crisis and social, economic, and political uncertainty, we believe technological innovation will continue to be the silver lining that delivers real societal growth. Now more than ever, we look to entrepreneurs who are building a mindful, innovative future; and founders have proven many times that they thrive in turbulent times. 


We want people driven by passion and with an entrepreneurial mindset, ready to embrace the uncertainty of this world and the investment ecosystem. We’re welcoming all backgrounds and reward grit. Your profile doesn’t look like the norm? Be our guest.
