Working at CrowdStreet
CrowdStreet believes that the markets are stronger when they are more accessible, transparent, and efficient–for everyone. We are a team dedicated to transforming the world of commercial real estate (CRE) through technology and have been recognized by leading industry publications including Globe St. and CRETech. Our online Marketplace gives investors direct access to commercial real estate investment opportunities, while simultaneously helping real estate sponsors and developers raise capital online.
Headquartered in downtown Portland, our offices overlook historic Pioneer Square. We offer great employee benefits and are committed to fostering a fantastic culture, even as our team has moved to 100% remote in the wake of COVID. To help empower our employees to work where they work best, we’re providing everyone with laptops, a monthly stipend to help cover expenses, and the ability to come into the office–under strict safety guidelines–as needed. We’re also hosting weekly digital All Hands to keep everyone connected.
Named by The Oregonian as a 2020 Top Places to Work, CrowdStreet is also a Forbes Top 500 Best Startup Employer, the 2019 Oregon Technology Awards Rising Star, and the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN) 2019 Growth Stage Company of the Year.
What You’ll Be Doing
As a Managing Director, Capital Markets, you will be responsible for sourcing deals from institutional-quality CRE developers, owners, operators (collectively “sponsors”) within your designated territory for our Marketplace. You will bring your extensive relationships with sponsors in your region, coupled with your expert knowledge of CRE capital markets in order to ramp quickly, build and manage a large pipeline of opportunities, and close five or more deals every quarter. You will work closely with the CrowdStreet Investment Committee to screen new sponsors, their deals and investment structures to uphold the high standards of our Marketplace.
By leveraging your established reputation for CRE knowledge and consultative selling, you will create new, long-term and programmatic relationships with sponsors for CrowdStreet. You will teach prospective sponsors about online fundraising and why the CrowdStreet Marketplace is the future of CRE investing. You will acquire new customers by compelling them to try online fundraising for the first time, and then establish yourself and CrowdStreet as a reliable capital partner for their future deal flow. You will also source leads for our white-label software sales team to license our technology to Marketplace-eligible sponsors.
To support your success, you will be partnered with a Capital Markets Associate for your region, whose primary responsibility is to make outbound calls, qualify sponsors, and schedule meetings for you.
This position can be based anywhere in the USA and reports to our VP of Sales.
