Decentral Park Capital

Multi-strategy digital assets fund

Research Associate

Role Description

Decentral Park Capital is a multi-strategy cryptoasset investment firm, led by a senior team of seasoned entrepreneurs and financiers, veterans of the blockchain industry. We are looking for a research analyst to join our ranks and help further build our data & fundamentals driven investing strategy and together shape the future of the firm.

Think of this role as at the nexus of a VC associate, a hedge fund analyst and a product leader. Your research will inform both strategic and tactical investment decisions and portfolio positioning. You will work with a nimble team of developers to optimize and expand Decentral Park’s software suite (the WOPR) adding critical features that power our investment strategy. You will be our boots on the ground in a network of builders, fellow investors and field experts.

Desired attributes

You think quick on your feet, but rest comfortably on a strong structure of reason. You are part-analytical and part-creative, not shying away from connecting dots that “shouldn’t be linked”. You enjoy spending your time thinking about incentive structures, understanding token economics, working on structuring problem definitions and subsequently finding the right data to produce a cogent narrative around what a possible solution might look like.

  • Produce original valuation & modelling work and help further develop the firm’s valuation tool suite
  • Due diligence investment opportunities and produce investment memos
  • Product manage our software suite, scoping out the feature set and prioritising feature development
