Transaction Advisory

We are looking for a stellar individual to join our Founding Team to drive end-to-end transaction advisory and execution, while managing tax compliance and regulatory aspects. Unlike most setups, this is not a growth lever for us, this is absolutely core to our business.

  • Leading transaction execution with a consumer mindset. Work closely with business teams, functional experts (legal, tax, accounting etc) and various due diligence advisors to enable primary and secondary PE transactions
  • Independently developing financial models for investment opportunities. Perform detailed financial analysis, develop pro forma financial models, valuation analysis and synergy models in support of potential transactions
  • Preparing detailed presentations for internal projects, M&A or investment opportunities for discussion at the board level
  • Performing and synthesizing comprehensive and in-depth company and industry research

What do you need?

  • CA, CS or MBA with about 5 - 8 yrs of experience
    • Outstanding track record of academic achievement with excellent communication skills
    • Experience in (a) transactions including M&A/equity investments, or (b) consulting in financial services sector, would be an advantage
  • Deep understanding of the SEBI world e.g. CIS norms, tax optimization, ODI/ OPI norms etc.
  • Familiarity with aspects of VC deal-making (from due diligence to deal structuring, negotiating key terms, reviewing legal documentation, and post-close deal management); Experience and end to end visibility of fund raise cycles in a start-up stint
  • Superior analytical and problem solving skills, with demonstrated intellectual and analytical rigor, attention to detail and ability to carry out sophisticated financial modelling
  • Broad financial acumen including a strong foundation in corporate finance principles including valuations principles
  • Passionate about early-stage investing, technology and start-ups
  • Temperament to work in cross-functional teams and ability to interact and co-ordinate with other businesses, teams and individuals for execution
  • Strong professional network in the core VC and start-up ecosystem in India is a plus

Best things about the job:

  • A unique shot to solve a pathbreaking problem statement, not attempted at scale anywhere globally 🚀
  • A great opportunity to learn and develop yourself, immense career growth. We just got started. Things will get serious very, very soon.
  • Be part of the most entertaining core team you will find
