About the Role:

Industrious is a high-growth company and leader in the Workplace as a Service sector. The Corporate Development team is a transaction focused team, working on a range of deals that are at the forefront of the company’s strategy to be a leading industry player. 

The Director of Corporate Development will accelerate Industrious’ growth through fundraising throughout the capital structure, leading/supporting M&A transactions, and wear the finance hat across a range of strategic projects. He/she has extensive experience managing multiple projects, departments and external relationships.

Main workstreams include:

  • Acquisitions
  • IPO readiness
  • Private round fundraising across the capital structure (equity, debt, mezzanine)
  • Investor relations

This is a highly visible position across the organization and will work closely with the C-suite.The role is based at our headquarters in Union Square, New York and reports directly to the VP of Corporate Development.

This is a good fit for you if:

  • You have experience in structuring complex deals as the principal negotiator. Those deals could be an acquisition, the terms of a private funding round or mezzanine loan, or a complex strategic partnership. You are particularly good at understanding both the company’s and the counterparty’s objectives with the transaction, and know how to navigate those differences into a successful outcome for both parties.
  • You enjoy persuading others and have command over a range of tools to do so, whether it be complex financial analysis, a simple narrative across Powerpoint slides, or creating a back of the envelope framework to attack a problem
  • You are great at developing relationships both within the company as well as with external stakeholders, whether that be a potential investor or an M&A target
  • You don’t want to be pigeon-holed in a box as the “M&A person” or the “fundraising person.” While you do have expertise in one or all of those areas, you want a role where you can leverage that expertise into learning about and contributing to a range of strategic priorities at a high growth company.
  • You keep things on track. Acquisitions and fundraising transactions have a lot of moving parts, and you are good at making sure that the team is focusing on the right workstreams that move it forward.
  • You’re an Industrious culture add. What that means is you take a lot of ownership in your role, are extremely collaborative in nature, and are always looking for ways where you, your colleagues, and the company can be better every day.

What we might see on your CV (not all requisites, but just to give you an idea of the profile we are looking for)

  • 5-10 years of experience in investment banking, venture capital, and/or private equity
  • An MBA
  • Experience in structuring complex M&A transactions as well as project managing those deals across the finish line
  • Experience (either directly or tangentially) in the fundraising process and investor relations, including close interaction with a wide range of investor types (private equity venture, crossover, public investors)
  • Experience in identifying, assessing and prioritizing growth opportunities through a nuanced understanding of the company’s strategy, financial and industry analysis

In addition to our incredible team, there are lots of other fun reasons to work with us.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1.

Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
