We meet, analyze and review 1000+ startups from all across Latin America to invest in 15-20 startups per year.

We are looking for someone to lead Magma’s presence in Colombia, where we have made more than 25 investments since 2014, in top Colombian companies like Truora, Omnibnk, Kushki Pagos, Neivor, OnTop, Mono and more. 

You will be involved in the entire inner workings of our venture capital firm, from evaluating and investing in startups, supporting portfolio companies, and meeting potential investors in our fund, like family offices and corporate venture firms.
