  • Produce written and presentation materials to communicate the above investment analysis to our Executive Principals
  • Obtain the third party analyses—external consultants, tax, legal, etc.—and Executive Principal approvals required to execute investments
  • Supervise ongoing monitoring and oversight of existing investments, including analyzing financial figures received, responding to follow-on capital raises and other corporate actions, and exiting investments
  • Perform other duties as required and necessary to accomplish goals and objectives, including sourcing relevant investment opportunities

Basic qualifications for this role

  • 7+ years of work experience in investments—preferably at an investment bank, commercial bank, consulting firm, or investment manager—including 3+ years of leading due diligence processes and supervising junior analysts
  • Advanced Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint skills

Characteristics that will support your success

  • Unquestionable ethics and integrity
  • Attention to detail
  • Intellectual curiosity and agility
  • Knowledge of private investment due diligence processes
  • Strong critical thinking, analytical, problem-solving, and project management skills
  • Interest and drive to teach and develop both subordinates and peers
  • Ability to meet deadlines, prioritize assignments, and multi-task
  • Strong communication skills—able to articulate ideas, communicate tactfully, and give and receive feedback
  • Adaptability to a rapidly changing environment, including reprioritization or reassignment of responsibilities

Hiring Process

After an initial screening interview with a member of our HR team, qualified candidates will be invited (on a rolling basis until the position is filled) to complete a substantial take-home case study designed to assess the degree to which they meet the basic qualifications for the role. Candidates who successfully complete the case study will be invited to two rounds of interviews: first with the FAST team in Denver, Colorado, and then in Bentonville, Arkansas with senior members of Walton Enterprises.
