Mission: Summit Partners was founded in 1984 with a commitment to find and partner with exceptional entrepreneurs and help them accelerate their growth and achieve dramatic results.
I have been working at Summit Partners full-time (More than 5 years)
Pride that comes from top industry returns done the right way.
emphasis on continuous improvement and innovation i.e. not resting on laurels
great people - smart, sense of humor, very hard working but gritty and no pretense
Diversity is highest priority. Working on it as I type this.
Typical interview process is several rounds. There are a couple initial phone screens with other associates or VP level people at the firm. If you make it past the phone screens, then you are typically invited for several in-person interviews with a range of individuals - associates, VPs, and principals/partners. If that goes well, then there is typically an additional day of in-person interviews with the managing partners before a decision is made.
Typical interview questions include:
- walk me thru your resume (keep response to less than 3 minutes)
- what do you think would be a compelling investment opportunity for Summit and why?
- walk me through a deal/transaction you have worked on (investment thesis, your role, valuation, outcome, etc.)
- additional questions will be asked to gauge work ethic, cultural fit, ability and desire to cold call, sales skills
