About the Role
Skip Capital, the private investment fund of Kim Jackson and Scott Farquhar (co-founder of Atlassian), is hiring a talented listed equities investor to manage our growing listed equities portfolio.

You will join a team that has invested in leading Aussie companies including Canva, SafetyCulture and CultureAmp, and also participated in the renowned global SaaS IPOs of Zoom, Datadog and Cloudflare. We have unique access to thought leaders, tech experts and deal flow, and you will bring your current relationships alongside this to develop insights.
