Jobs

Given our interests, size and mission, a career at Salvia looks quite different from what you can expect at a large investment company.

While we pay competitive salaries, professional development at Salvia is more akin to an initiation into the investment management than a planned,
step–by–step career. From day one, you will spend a lot of time with our partners and portfolio companies. You will contribute according to your
strengths and what you can do rather than what is expected from you “at such and such a level of your career”.

It will not come as a surprise that we are looking for individuals with diverse backgrounds, who are curious, self–starters and capable of working
in our non–hierarchical environment, which puts a high premium on collaborative knowledge generation in– and outside of client projects.

We recruit essentially through word by mouth of partners and business relations.
