EquityZen is an early-mid stage financial technology company, backed by leading private equity investors. We're looking for an Intern to join our Research team on a paid part-time basis for at least 20 hours per week, but not to exceed more than 29 hours per week for the remainder of 2019 with the potential to convert to full-time in 2020. If you are interested in learning more about pre-IPO companies and love to conduct in depth research and write, let’s talk! 

Our platform enables large, private companies to deliver liquidity to their shareholders while providing investors access to invest in these proven, pre-IPO companies. EquityZen has served 150+ premier tech and digital health companies and is proud to be considered a liquidity provider for 1 out of 3 of the largest unicorns. A testament to EquityZen's secure, paperless, and industry-defining online investment platform, we have successfully completed 7500+ private placement transactions. Focusing on automating an antiquated offline process has allowed us to lead the charge in building more efficient, cost-effective, and transparent private markets.
