Role: Part-Time Investment Intern

About You

You are a New England-based student or recent grad (preferably in the Greater Boston area). You are excited to continue building your experience in the future of the financial system, particularly when it comes to banks and fintechs. You have shown interest in multiple sectors of fintech including: Back-Office Automation, Blockchain & DLT, Customer Experience, Cybersecurity, Data & Analytics, InsurTech, Lending, Payments, Personal Finance & WealthTech, and Treasury & Cash Management.

You understand the difference between a fintech that is disruptive to existing financial institutions, and ones that are enabling the existing institutions to transform and persist. You also get excited by the idea of guiding many existing community banks on their innovation and digital transformation journeys and being immersed in this ecosystem.
