WORK WITH TOP 1% OF GLOBAL TALENT

Based in Austin, Texas, the company focuses on buying, strengthening, then growing mature business software companies. By taking advantage of its unique operating platform, the company revitalizes its acquisitions for sustainable success while making customer satisfaction a top priority. 

The group has performed over 50 acquisitions since 2006 and aspires to 30+ annually.

While we appear similar to many software Private Equity firms, there are key differences. Our primary focus is on acquiring a large number of smaller companies each year. We fully integrate these businesses into our ecosystem making extensive use of centralized shared services, systems, and processes.  This enables huge economies of scale that these smaller businesses could never achieve on their own.

We have also built our culture, systems, and processes around a global virtual workforce. Everyone from the lowest level accounting clerk to the CFO operates in this model. You will find we are one of the few companies offering high-paying jobs that are 100% remote, work from home. You never have to fight traffic to the office again and you have the freedom to choose when and where you put in your 40 hours to be most effective each week.


Expectations

Reporting to the Group CFO, the Director of Corporate Development will primarily focus on sourcing deals from venture and private equity funds.  You will build an exhaustive database of these funds and network regularly in person, via phone, or email as appropriate. Our ultimate goal is to be aware and get our group a look or an “at-bat” each and every single time that a venture or private equity backed enterprise software business is for sale.  Once identified, you will work with our valuation, legal, and integration teams to quarterback the deal all the way through to close.

 

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years experience in Private Equity

  • Extensive experience in Venture Capital

  • Experience in Enterprise Software / SaaS

  • Extensive experience with building target M&A databases

  • Extensive experience marketing into M&A databases via a variety of channels (phone, email, events, etc.)

  • Experience in valuation and M&A deal execution, specifically the integration of financial teams from acquisitions

  • MUST be US based

Core skills and capabilities:

  • You thrive in fast-paced and experiential learning

  • You are fearless in making and executing decisions

  • You are well organized, resourceful, as well as effective and efficient at marshaling multiple resources to get things done

  • You are skilled at getting individuals, teams, and an entire organization to perform at a higher level and to embrace change

Step 1: Online Application

Start your application by creating an account and profile with Crossover, then uploading your resume and confirming your email address. From there, the Crossover platform will guide you through the remaining steps.

Step 2: Take the English and Fundamentals Test

We have a series of multiple-choice tests to check for the knowledge and skills needed for the role and an English exam where we ask candidates to upload a 2-3 minute audio submission. After this stage, you will receive an email invitation to the next step in the application process.


Step 3: Free Response Questions and CCAT Testing

In this step, we will ask you a series of free response questions that will simulate scenarios you are likely to encounter in the role. We find both the willingness to invest this time – coupled with the insights we derive from the answers – help us find the truly capable and passionate candidates. You may also be asked to make a presentation of your answers to demonstrate your communication skills. The free response section is an opportunity to preview the type of work you would be doing in the role and demonstrate your technical skills and abilities to hiring managers. The last free response question will invite you to complete CCAT testing. The CCAT measures cognitive aptitude or general intelligence, and tests an ability to solve problems, digest and apply information, learn new skills, and think critically.


Step 4: Join the Interview

The final step of the evaluation process is the marketplace interview. One of our hiring manager evaluators will speak with you on a video call to understand if you're the best fit for the position. In addition to technical and business questions about your current and previous roles and achievements, you may be asked about the answers you gave in your free response questions.


Step 5: Meet the Customer and Get Hired

If you successfully pass all stages of the evaluation process, you will have the opportunity to talk with hiring managers about the positions that are currently available. This is intended to be a two-way discussion where you can ask questions about the team, product, metrics, roadmap, etc. You can interview with as many hiring managers as desired and make the decision on which company or team best fits your interests and career goals.
