Calton Industries is looking for a macro-thinking analyst with an ability to proactively identify strategic, early-stage investment opportunities in companies. The candidate should have a deep understanding of computer science, distributed systems, consensus algorithms, networking, game theory and other fields relevant to blockchain technology. The investment analyst will be the eyes and ears of market research, constantly plugged into the heartbeat of the finance and cryptocurrency market landscape.

What you’ll be doing (i.e., job duties)

You’ll be part of the development team, responsible for the provision of timely, accurate and reliable financial management information related to M&A projects. You will model pro forma scenarios associated with potential acquisitions and divestitures, as well as perform cash flow and returns analyses. Your day-to-day focus will be on the resolution of complex problems or transactions, and your expertise will be required to interpret policies, guidelines, or processes. You may be considered an analytical expert and supervise the day-to-day work of junior-level employees, but this is not a formal management role. Roles at this level usually require an individual emerging as an expert in a specific skill set, business area or product, but who remains focused primarily on daily execution.

  • Model all positions in a sub-sector portfolio by tracking relative performance, sizing around upcoming events, price target upside/downside, etc.
  • Build models for new names introduced into the core coverage universe.
  • In some cases, train, manage and mentor an investment associate.


As an early employee, you will be a critical part of our core team and have a significant impact on the direction of the company.
