About the Position

Crawford Lake is seeking a research analyst to work closely with our portfolio managers, current analyst, and traders. This is a newly created position due to the growth of the firm and our desire to expand the depth of our research in the technology sector, including coverage of SaaS applications, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, the Internet of Things (IoT), and semiconductors.

A successful analyst will be able to respond to short-notice requests for information and proactively research and report market catalysts that may add value to the firm’s investment strategy. This person will be given significant responsibility and exposure from day one. The role will focus heavily on qualitative analysis. The analyst should have some prior tech industry experience with broad knowledge of the competitive landscape of various sub-industry groups. Note: the traditional valuation strategy of long-term financial modeling is not what we are seeking for this role. Rather, we are seeking an individual who has a deep understanding of the industry to provide valuable context for targeted, short-term qualitative analysis.

The successful analyst should look forward to a long-term role in a firm with strong values and a positive culture. The analyst will enjoy a salary commensurate with experience and a discretionary annual bonus based on fund performance. Candidates must live or be willing to relocate to within one hour of Lakewood, NJ.
