Insight Partners

New York, NY, USA
Posted on October 2, 2023

Job Description

Our Onsite Diligence & Growth Strategy (DGS) Analyst program focuses on developing professionals in venture capital and PE investing. If you are an ambitious undergrad, you are passionate and curious about software, technology and scale-ups, and are looking for balanced exposure to the investing and operating toolkits in the world of tech, then we’d love to have you join us.

What You’ll Do

As an analyst, you’ll be involved in the full life cycle of an investment: from due diligence and the decision to invest, to helping our portfolio companies grow, all the way through exit.

Funding technology scale-ups is not easy work. It is a competitive environment where many firms are trying to find their next “winner.” In this role, you will have the opportunity to diligence tech companies while also working alongside founders and employees of Insight’s existing portfolio to drive value and help solve some of their most difficult strategic problems.

(i) Commercial Diligence: You will be on the front lines from day one collaborating with Investment Teams to drive sound decisions. You will work with a small team (3-5 members) to evaluate potential investments, gathering and analyzing information that forms the basis of Insight’s investment thesis. You will learn how to validate (or refute) a thesis and clearly communicate both your quantitative and qualitative findings in memos and business meetings. Each diligence is different, but some common responsibilities include:

  • Building market sizing models and conducting primary and secondary market research
  • Interviewing a company’s customers, pipeline, channel partners, or employees to gain a deep understanding of competitive positioning
  • Modeling and benchmarking company financials
  • Analyzing data in customer transaction databases
  • Designing, launching, and analyzing customer surveys

(ii) Portfolio Growth Strategy: you will work closely with Insight’s portfolio companies, Operating Partners, and experts within Onsite’s Centers of Excellence to assist companies in their scaleup journey. Onsite’s Centers of Excellence support companies with advice targeted at critical functional areas of a startup (Sales, Customer Success, Marketing, Product & Tech, Business Development, and Talent), while operating partners leverage industry experience to collaborate with CEOs and help activate their ambitious goals. Each portfolio engagement is unique though a typical project might look like:

  • Building operating models to help leadership understand the impact of strategic initiatives
  • Evaluating potential M&A targets and assisting with effective post-merger integration
  • Working alongside COE’s to provide data-driven recommendations to the leaders of the sales marketing, sales, and customer success organizations
  • Partnering closely with portfolio companies to prepare them for a successful exit from Insight’s portfolio, supporting everything from market pitch to data preparation

Insight has a strong tradition of promoting from within, but Insight Onsite alumni have gone on to start companies, run businesses, become investors, or attend graduate school.

  • Undergraduates or 5-year masters students, graduating between December 2024 – June 2025 with an outstanding record of academic achievement (business or quantitative degrees are a plus)
  • Demonstrated aptitude for analytics and quantitative problem-solving skills
  • A solid team player with a proven record of leadership who’s also an independent thinker
  • Ability to communicate complex ideas effectively
  • Deadline-driven, organized, and able to multitask

Your employment will be conditional upon:

  • Passing a background check
  • Confirming your eligibility to work in the United States
  • Acknowledgement of, agreement to, and continued compliance with Insight’s policies and procedures, including its Compliance Manual and Code of Ethics contained therein, as amended from time to time
  • Execution of a confidentiality agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Insight
