Micro PE

Working Student M&A Analyst (m/f/d)

Cologne, Germany
Investing & Finance

Saas.group is taking care of 6 start-ups (sniply.io, juicer.io, prerender.io, deploybot.com, git-tower.com, scraperapi.com), we are determined to help provide a full specter of services to help these companies reach their full potential.  Saas.group was founded in 2017 with a simple goal in mind: to help small companies reach their full potential. We looked at what made private equity firms and other common routes so maddening, and worked backward, simplifying every step. The result has been founders and teams who are happy with the process and relieved to see their SaaS business in a great home for the long-term.

As we are growing rapidly, we are looking to expand our lead funnel and are looking for a working student to join our M&A team in finding and evaluating new promising acquisition targets. We think this is a great opportunity for someone looking to work in a start-up environment and gain insight into the SaaS and Micro PE space.
