This is a unique opportunity to join a leading European investor and combine your strategic thinking with sustainability/impact.

Verdane is an investor partnering with ambitious European tech-enabled and sustainable businesses to reach their next stage of international growth. Our goal is to be the preferred growth partner to tech-enabled and sustainable businesses in Northern Europe. We are a quickly growing company, with 100+ employees across 6 offices.

Who you are:
As a person, you collaborate well in a down-to-earth and value-based culture that is committed to creating long-lasting relationships. You have a can-do attitude, creative problem-solving skills, and the ability to take a step back to see the big picture and what it means.
