When you join the Canvas team, you’re signing up for the learning experience of your life. You will never look at anything the same—from grocery stores to tires to semiconductors. Every day you will speak with some of the most successful private company executives and learn about the businesses they’ve spent their lives building. You will synthesize your findings in comprehensive reports that are consumed by our investment professionals.

  • Fast-paced work environments that at times require switching gears to address the needs of the business
  • Working as part of a cross-functional team made up of Investment, Research, and Compliance professionals


  • Excellent attention to detail, organization, and project management skills
  • Superb business intuition and a solution orientated, methodological approach to problem solving
  • Ability to collaborate and build relationships across multiple business units within the Firm
  • People who “elevate the room” through their work ethic, curiosity, and solution-orientated attitude
  • Adherence to the highest ethical standards working closely with the Firm’s Compliance team


  • Demonstrated academic success and strong analytical skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication abilities
  • An eagerness to find out if your conclusions are right or wrong
  • An interest in learning how companies work (their processes and outcomes)
  • Intellectual curiosity, creative thinking, maturity
  • Highest standards of ethical decision making


  • Integrity—You demonstrate 100% commitment to the highest ethical standards
  • Ownership—You take charge of your work, uphold your commitments, and always do your best
  • Commerciality—You focus on what matters most, ask questions when needed, and are cognizant about not wasting your time or that of others
  • Humility—You welcome and are receptive to feedback and learn from past mistakes
  • Adaptability—You can triage business needs and context switch quickly and efficiently
  • Admirability—You elevate the room through your work ethic, domain knowledge, work product, and solution orientated attitude
