About AngelList Venture:
AngelList Venture is fundamentally altering how startups raise money by replacing early-stage venture capital with modern technology. Our infrastructure allows investors to build on top of AngelList instead of a traditional VC firm. We've innovated on new ways for VCs to raise money, new ways for startups to provide liquidity for employees, and even index-like VC funds.
We've grown exponentially in 2020 (www.angellist.com/2020) and have exciting plans for 2021. If you want to help us build the future of venture capital, we welcome you to apply.
About the role:
As the Portfolio Operations Lead for Crypto, you will help set strategy, oversee day-to-day operations and continuously improve our crypto-focused systems and infrastructure to deliver a world class experience to our GP's, LP's and portfolio companies. You will also be a trusted advisor for the business and an expert in building compliant operational systems within a rapidly changing regulatory environment.
With over $2.5B in assets under management, 77 unicorns backed by AngelList Funds & Syndicates, and 51% of all top-tier U.S. VC deals in our portfolio, AngelList is the nexus of venture capital. Our strategy of building a scalable, innovative platform that makes spinning up and managing funds a breeze for both fund managers (GPs) and investors (LPs) has enabled us to own the early-stage venture market. You will report into our Head of Portfolio Operations and can be based remotely anywhere in the US (or out of our offices in San Francisco, Seattle or New York).
The ideal candidate will have a track record that demonstrates a deep understanding of the mechanics, regulatory and technical aspects of investments in crypto and digital assets. You will also have a superb financial operations background, and ideally will have strong familiarity with the operations of private funds. You will also be excited at the prospect of achieving our mission by supporting a next generation of startups.

You will:

  • Own high-level goals for development and execution of our crypto-focused systems and offerings.
  • Identify, diligence and maintain relationships with key third party partners.
  • Cultivate and display a deep understanding of our product offerings, our platform, the venture industry, and our mission.
  • Coordinate with product, operations, and functional teams to prioritize and drive offering development.
  • Serve as an external face of AngelList Venture in industry events.
  • Exercise exceptional judgment and drive results for the most challenging exceptions and high-stakes crypto resolutions.

Other characteristics of the ideal candidate:

  • 5+ years experience working in high level financial operations with significant exposure to crypto operations.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
  • Both high EQ and high systems-analytic skills. Ideal candidates will have the ability to effectively bridge the need to manage relationships with highly analytic internal software development and operational requirements.
  • Deep understanding of venture capital and crypto operations and infrastructure: the only way to effectively lead this team is to understand deeply how and why venture fund investments and portfolio companies work.
  • Experience in a rapidly scaling fintech environment and/or the disposition to thrive amidst rapid change.


If you don’t tick every box above, we’d still encourage you to apply. We’re building a diverse team whose skills balance and complement one another.

Benefits: We support our employees in their lives both inside and outside of work. See additional detail on our benefits here: https://angell.ist/venture-benefits.
