Next to excellence is the appreciation of it.

Prior to being offered an interview, you will be required to complete a Wonderlic Assessment Test that has been designed for the role for which you are applying.

The Role

This role is ideally-suited to someone who wishes to pursue a career in finance or venture capital and who is able to think on their feet, excel under pressure, and who has a strong personality. As a financial modeler, you will translate the business models of our clients into a robust financial forecast. All models begin with our base template, which you will then augment and adjust to account for the idiosyncrasies of each client’s business. All models are built in real-time while clients view your screen. There is no offline work. This allows you to ask questions, receive feedback, and avoid miscommunication while also ensuring that the client understands the model.

The Role

As a writer with Mercatur, you will have a chance to speak to an elite and creative group of clients. You must have a head for business and a stoic personality that is not easily enamored with novel ideas as this will slow down the writing process and introduce hyperbole into your writing. Your role will be to interview clients on a recorded call and then translate their vision into either a compelling pitch deck narrative or convincing responses to accelerator application questions. It is critical that both imagination and possibility are communicated, but it must be balanced with realism and prudence. We only consider experienced hires who have written in a professional capacity and can demonstrate an ability to write focused yet compelling prose. Unlike other writing jobs, there is no value in lengthy, meandering text when writing for our clients.

The Role

We refer to our Project Managers as “Finishers” as it is their role to get an engagement across the finish line. Once a client has completed the financial modeling process and their interview call with a writer, you will take over. You will review with the client the material that the writer has prepared and you will act as the conduit between the client and the writer as drafts are marked-up by the client, amended by the writer, and sent by you to the client for review. You will also lead a design kick-off call for engagements that include a pitch deck. On design kick-off calls, you will read though the final written work product with the client and the designer on the line and will provide instructions to the designer. You will also send through the fully-designed pitch deck to the client and serve as the conduit through which design edits are passed to the designer. When clients hire us, they do so because we have done hundreds of engagements and we know what works and how to produce the best outcome for them. Occasionally, however, a client may attempt to reinvent our process to suit their preferences. When this happens, it will be your role enforce our workflow while still accounting for the client’s needs.

Qualifications

Undergraduate or graduate degree with a track record of outstanding academic achievement.

Possesses a pleasant, yet persuasive speaking voice and a compelling phone presence coupled with an ability to read written material aloud with ease.

Consultative and helpful to the client, yet still able to enforce our workflow, which is designed to ensure engagements do not go awry.

Strong design sense and spatial reasoning ability coupled with the skill to both elicit design goals from a client and communicate design concepts to a designer.

Possesses a strong work ethic, a high level of endurance, a commitment to deadlines and punctuality, and is highly-organized.

The Role

At Mercatur, we separate the writing and design processes. This allows us to focus on the story without fighting with one hand tied behind our back by simultaneously planning design. Once the content for a pitch deck is ready, you will join a design kick-off call during which the content will be read aloud and design objectives discussed. In your role, you will be expected to create one new pitch deck each day and process revisions for up to two other pitch decks each day. The person who excels in this role in one who is at ease with presentation design and who is able to develop a streamlined approach to deck design that suits their work style. And, while timely delivery is essential, decks must be on-brand and cannot appear to have been designed from a template. Our designers must be able to utilize Microsoft PowerPoint at an advanced level as our clients want the sophistication typically achieved using Adobe products, but with the ease of editing that Microsoft PowerPoint provides.

Possesses a strong work ethic, a high level of endurance, a commitment to deadlines and punctuality, and is highly-organized.

The Role

Unlike other Account Executive roles where the focus is purely sales, your task is to evaluate if a potential client is a good fit or not. On average, we accept 3-4 out of every 10 clients who contact us. To excel in this role, you will need to have superior business acumen and a genuine interest in business. You will interview each client about their business and ask pertinent questions to uncover if a client has thought through most of the relevant issues needed for us to create a stellar work product for them. We do not create businesses for clients. We don’t tell them what to sell, how to market, how to price their product, or what their competitive landscape looks like. If they cannot speak to these issues, then we cannot help them. We do not develop strategy, we reflect it. It is critical that you have a consultative communication style so that you do not prejudge a client as being unprepared when they may simply be nervous. But you must also be decisive enough to know when a client is not a good fit. You should have an intermediate level of understanding of accounting concepts as you will be trained to assess which businesses are best suited for us to model and which are not.
