Connecting the best talent with great companies
WATERLOO, CANADA, September 12, 2006 – Tech Capital Partners, a venture capital firm investing in early-stage technology companies, today announced it has launched a new website that showcases the specific career opportunities available at its portfolio companies. Rather than searching to identify the best available career opportunities, talented, but often busy, professionals and students can now visit http://www.techcapital.com for a complete listing.
“We recognize that the employees at our portfolio companies play a huge part in the ultimate success of the companies,” said Tim Jackson, Partner, Tech Capital Partners. “Talented and dedicated people want to work for great companies – we are simply facilitating an introduction between the best talent and some of the hottest early-stage technology companies in Canada.”
Career opportunities range from positions at very-early-stage companies with one or two employees to positions at companies with 100 or more employees.
Tech Capital portfolio companies are currently looking for people to fill roles in:
• Software development
• Product management
• Project management
• Quality assurance (QA)/test
• Sales and marketing
• Finance and administration
Potential employees who are interested in talking to Tech Capital directly about career opportunities at our portfolio companies can also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are a number of benefits to working for a Tech Capital funded technology company:
Career development opportunities are extensive
When working for a company early in its development, the scope of an employee’s role can be much broader than at a more mature company. Employees have more visibility into the overall goals and objectives of the company and are able to see the direct impact they are having on the company’s success.
Employees share in the success of the company
People who are attracted to working at early-stage technology companies are typically smart, passionate, and looking to make a difference. Tech Capital portfolio companies have stock based incentive programs to reward employees for the entrepreneurial success of the company.
Experienced management teams, real market opportunities
Tech Capital conducts extensive due diligence on companies before investing. Our portfolio company management teams are experienced and the market opportunities have been thoroughly reviewed and tested. Typically only 1% of technology companies who seek venture capital financing are successful in raising venture capital financing so these companies have cleared a high hurdle. Consequently, they are some of the most exciting technology companies in Canada today.
Great working environments
Our portfolio companies provide stimulating work environments filled with exceptional people developing leading-edge technologies. In addition to exciting work, these positions offer competitive salaries, extensive medical benefits, and the flexibility that comes with working in an entrepreneurial environment.
