Job Description:

About Juniper SquareWe envision a world with radically expanded opportunities for investment and participation in private markets. Our mission is to unlock the full potential of investment partnerships. Privately owned assets like commercial real estate, private equity, venture capital, crypto, and others make up half of our financial ecosystem yet remain inaccessible to most people. We are digitizing these markets and as a result bringing access to millions who don't currently benefit from one of the most productive corners of our financial ecosystem. If you care about making the world a better place by making markets work better through technology-all while contributing as a member of a values-driven organization-we want to hear from you. We've doubled our team in each of the past four years while maintaining an excellent culture and staying true to our values. We are well-funded and building for the long-term. We need YOU to help us achieve our mission.Juniper Square invests in a hybrid workforce and we offer three work modes: full time remote work from your home office, a hybrid of home and office work from one of our office hubs, currently in San Francisco and Austin, or full time work in an office hub. The company headquarters is in the Cloud and we invest in digital-first operations. We have communities of remote employees across the US and Canada, with more substantive local remote working communities in Seattle, Denver, Chicago and New York, but we are open to employees working in several states and provinces. We are happy to share with interested applicants where and how we work.About The RoleJuniper Square serves two sides of the private capital markets, the investment managers (GPs) and the investors (LPs). The GP Software track aims at reducing the cost, time, and risk of error that investment managers currently experience when performing routine activities for a fund. We provide them enhanced workflows, and thus, enhanced productivity.By automating these time-consuming tasks, customers are able to focus their efforts where their time is best spent: finding new investments in their preferred market and increasing their value for the benefit of their customers, the investors. We serve as a System of Record for them, replacing spreadsheets with a more structured approach that provides easier ways to fulfill their ongoing obligations to their investors. Our customers are often able to scale their assets under management by a factor of 2-4x, which is a key indicator of success for investment managers.As a Director of Engineering for the GP Software team, you will own and oversee the development of one of Juniper Square's core offerings.
