Private Equity Analyst (2024 Class)
Turn/River Capital is a leading technology-focused private equity firm headquartered in San Francisco with over $2 billion of assets under management. We specialize in growth capital investments, founder liquidity, buyouts, spin-outs, and recapitalizations of B2B software companies.
Our mission is to grow established B2B software companies that have been largely bootstrapped, lean, and profitable to date. We combine capital with data-driven marketing, sales optimization, and operational execution to help companies double or triple their growth and build significant value.
At Turn/River, we are analytically minded, curious by nature, and voracious learners. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer with an inclusive working environment.
We are only accepting Spring 2024 college graduates at this time.
About the Role
We are looking for driven individuals with interest in tech and finance to join Turn/River’s growing Investment & Sourcing Team. Sourcing is an increasingly important function as we look for strategic investment opportunities. After building a strong foundation in sourcing, for exceptional individuals there’s an opportunity to grow into partner-track investing or operating roles.

Many of our team members come from operational backgrounds and focus on various aspects of digital marketing, sales, and account management in our portfolio companies.

You’ll speak directly with CEOs of software companies and learn and share how to grow software companies with modern tactics and strategies.
Successful candidates will often have experience in finance, B2B software businesses, and/or sourcing.
