Alpine HQ | AI Summer Associate

Alpine Investors

Posted on April 1, 2024

Alpine is seeking candidates for an AI Summer Associate role – a full-time, 12-week role with the potential to extend employment based on individual performance and business needs. While this is a remote position, you will be expected to attend 2-3 in-person events in San Francisco / New York City (travel and lodging for in-person events will be covered). Should your employment extend, you will be placed directly at one portfolio company and employment will be offered by the individual portfolio company.

The AI Summer Associate will be responsible for prototyping, strategic implementation, and impact assessment of AI and automation solutions for one of Alpine’s portfolio companies. Leveraging a strong business acumen; a scrappy, hands-on approach to problem-solving; and a keen interest in understanding and applying AI technologies to complex business challenges, the AI Summer Associate will explore and rapidly test practical applications of AI and automation to drive strategic value in and seek outsized gains for an existing portfolio company.

If you’re passionate about AI technologies and want to help shape the future of AI at a leading private equity firm by supporting a fast-moving portfolio company through technology strategy and implementation, we’d love to hear from you.

We are hosting two (2) info sessions to further describe the role:

Session 1: April 2nd – 3 pm ET / 12 pm (noon) PT

Session 2: April 11th – 1 pm ET / 10 am PT
