After reviewing 345 applications, interviewing 30 candidates, and inviting 11 to meet us in person, we are excited to announce that we have 3 incredible analysts joining USV in the coming weeks. We recognize that our process is a bit different and arduous for both the candidates as well as our team, but we couldn’t be happier with the results. Each candidate brings a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences that we believe will add a lot to USV. We’re looking forward to each of them introducing themselves to you soon (as is USV tradition),
As excited as we are to be closing this chapter, we are equally disappointed to be saying goodbye to some truly remarkable candidates. This was not an easy decision for us and in some cases we were really splitting hairs. Some fun facts about our finalists:
- Most had been out of college for 2-4 years
- 7 of the 11 were female
- Their backgrounds included everything from running a notable media brand to financial services to using NLP to build a legal case recommendation engine to assist underserved defendants.
Even though we are unable to bring all these folks along on the ride at USV, we look forward to keeping in touch with them as they build what we expect will be remarkable careers (hopefully some inside the USV portfolio or network of partners).
We are looking forward to welcoming our newest team members!
