Kindred is an £80M venture fund based in London. We back founders of technology companies at the very beginning of their journey. Every entrepreneur, adviser, and team member that we work with becomes a co-owner in our fund, which means that everyone shares in the profits of one another's success - we call it ‘equitable venture’.

When we make an investment in a business we work hard for the founders to help them get further, faster. We’re a full-time team of six, based in Clerkenwell - four partners leading investments, one Venture Partner, and one person leading finance and operations. We also work closely with six extraordinary advisers and 40 founders.

You’ll report to the Head of Finance and Ops and support on the financial and operational excellence of Kindred - it’s a role that requires a breadth of skills across finance, deal execution, and community relations. Your day could include helping to manage the finances of the fund, supporting the partners on a deal, organising an event for our portfolio companies, and ensuring every founder who comes through our door is greeted with a warm welcome.
