Zapflow Ltd is headquartered in Helsinki, Finland and has a team of 15 professionals with 8 nationalities based in Helsinki, Tel Aviv & Boston. 

Zapflow is a productivity tool used by almost 100 private equity teams in 30+ countries to get more done with less effort. It’s also a CRM but the biggest value is in the fact that it combines deal flow management, transaction management, portfolio management and portfolio reporting into one centralized location creating a single source of truth for the whole team. 

Zapflow is looking for an aspiring Venture capital professional to join their team. In this position you will grow into a diverse VC/PE professional as your focus is to help the private equity teams improve and manage their core processes better. You will also support account managers in selling by providing your deep product and industry understanding throughout the entire sales process. The goal is to demonstrate to busy investment professionals how Zapflow’s could bring value to their daily work.

You will also take responsibility for customer onboarding, training and support to ensure customers can realize the full potential of the Zapflow platform from the beginning. Once the customers have been onboarded you will be their first point of contact with questions and issues and ensure they will make the most out of Zapflow software​. ​Since you work closely with customers you also have an important role regarding product development: you make sure that the customer feedback and wishes are heard when software is being developed.
