VICE PRESIDENT, DATA ANALYTICS

AVG is seeking a Vice President of Data Analytics with exceptional vision, skills and experience in business analytics to strategize, build and lead our data and analytics infrastructure. 

ABOUT ALUMNI VENTURES GROUP

Alumni Ventures Group is a fast-growing company with around 100 employees across the country dedicated to growing and engaging with an inclusive community of teammates, investors, and entrepreneurs disrupting the status quo in order to build a better future. AVG provides accredited investors with a smart, simple way to own a high-quality, actively managed venture portfolio.  Today, we serve roughly 4,000 investors, hundreds of startups, and a community of over 500,000 stakeholders across the country.  Our corporate headquarters in Manchester, NH provides support and resources to our fund teams in Boston, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. 

ABOUT THIS ROLE

Today, AVG delivers a direct-to-client approach to thousands of accredited individual investors.  Our product is simple: actively managed VC portfolios. These portfolios are diversified across stage, sector, geography, and primarily co-invested with established VC firms across the country. The successful VP of Data Analytics will lead the development of the information and analytics function at AVG and build effective systems and tools to deliver data, reporting and dashboards that lead to improved decision making across all functional areas.

Reporting into the Office of the CEO, directly to the Chief of Staff, the VP of Data Analytics will work across the company and closely with AVG’s executive team and senior leadership on a daily basis. This role (as most are currently at AVG) is likely to be remote to start, depending on the public health situation. In the future, we expect this position can be based out of one of AVG’s offices in Boston, New York, Chicago or San Francisco and will require some travel to our Manchester, NH headquarters and other offices in as required to fulfill the responsibilities of the position.
