About Juniper Square
Our mission is to make the world’s private capital markets more efficient, transparent, and accessible. Privately owned assets like commercial real estate make up half of our financial ecosystem yet remain inaccessible to most people. We are digitizing these markets and as a result bringing access to millions who don’t currently benefit from one of the most productive corners of our financial ecosystem. If you care about making the world a better place by making markets work better through technology—all while contributing as a member of a values-driven organization—we want to hear from you. We’ve doubled our team in each of the past four years while maintaining an excellent culture and staying true to our values. We are well-funded and building for the long-term. We need YOU to help us achieve our mission.

Juniper Square serves two sides of the private capital markets, the investment managers (GPs) and the investors (LPs). The network and fundraising tracks aim at improving the experience of investors of all sizes. We delight customers by automating laborious and time-consuming backoffice and providing useful data analysis, visualization and exports of data for investors.
This amplifies the toolset we provide on the Fundraising track which enables a seamless experience in managing all aspects of the fundraising lifecycle including investor communication streamlining, document and relationship management/automation and process efficacy analytics.
On the engineering side, some of the challenges we focus on are parallelization and automation of tasks, re-architecting of our components to allow for scaling and autonomy of action as well as rethinking our data models to account for the growing complexity of investor relationships while retaining strict security / privacy compliance.
