Institutional investors like banks and pension funds — as well as the top 0.1 percent of wealthy investors — have long benefited from private markets. Since 1999, funds like the ones on our platform have outperformed the S&P 500 by 13 percent.¹
Moonfare is opening the door to higher returns for more people. Specifically, we're making these benchmark investment opportunities available to more than just the ultra-wealthy. We offer qualified, individual investors access to a curated selection of top-tier private market funds. And we only work with the top 10 percent of GPs — and select only five percent of their funds for our platform.
Our investors access these opportunities through our intuitive, fully-digital platform and minimums as low as €50,000. That's about 100 times less than what's traditionally required. We also offer our investors the unique opportunity to buy and sell their allocations in a secondary market — held twice per year.

Two separate 60-minute interviews; an interview with one of our recruiters and, if successful, another interview with your future potential manager. The aim behind these calls is to gain an in-depth understanding of your experience, your motivations for the position and Moonfare — and your relevant soft and technical skills. At Moonfare, we see the interview process as a conversation. Our recruiters will answer any questions you may have about Moonfare, the culture and the position. During the Manager interview, you can ask in-depth questions about the position and the team, growth opportunities and their own particular management style.
Researching our company and product (including registering and exploring) is a good idea. Coming prepared with a set of questions that demonstrate your understanding of who we are and what we do always makes a positive impression. You’ll make an even better impression when you articulate why you want to work for Moonfare and the specific position.
This is your opportunity to showcase your skills and abilities. We will send you a challenge that will vary depending on the role (e.g. portfolio presentation for designers, role play for customer service or technical test for developers). You will have an appropriate amount of time to complete your challenge. After we review your submission, you may be invited to present your challenge to a few members of our team so that we can discuss your thought process.
Pro-tip: Stay within the allotted time to complete your challenge, but do your best! We know quality, originality and effort when we see it.
Pro-tip (technical roles): Be ready for a wide variety and depth of questions relevant to the technical elements of the role for which you are interviewing. Prepare some examples of projects or work portfolios that align with the role.
As the final step, you will have two separate culture interviews; one with two members of the team or teams you will be working closely with, and the other with one of our leaders (Head/VP/MD). These interviews focus on behavioural questions related to 'Core Cultural Attributes'. For you, it is a chance to determine whether the working and leadership culture at Moonfare align with your goals. Candidates often ask questions like: How does Moonfare put its values into practice? Can you describe what you like about working at Moonfare? What surprised you once you came on board? What does the future look like for Moonfare? Plus anything else you can think of that will help you make an informed decision about joining Moonfare.
Pro-tip: run this like your own interview. Do not be afraid to ask tough questions — we have likely asked you a few by this stage!
Our official company language is English, so this is the language that you can guarantee our hiring teams will be able to understand.
Submitting an application is potentially how you'll make your first impression, so you should aim high. A well-formatted and concise resume which clearly sets out your goals, motivation to join Moonfare, experience and skills is all we need to decide whether to proceed. Cover letters are optional, but not necessary.
We aim to respond to all applications within three business days. If you have any questions about your application, please contact [email protected].
Absolutely. We are a culturally-diverse company and can provide relocation support for almost any passport. Our relocation support includes a relocation reimbursement of up to €5,000, visa sponsorship and information about settling into Berlin. We also have a partnership with Jobbatical if you would like to access additional services such as help finding an apartment.
We receive many job applications for each vacancy. We know that job applications, especially the best ones, take a lot of work to write and perfect. Unfortunately, we are only able to provide feedback to candidates who are invited to interview with us. At the very least, you will receive an email telling you whether we're moving forward with your application.
If you have any questions about a role, please contact [email protected].
The introductory call can take as long as an hour. The aim is for our team to get a more in-depth understanding of your experience and alignment with the position. We also take the time to explain Moonfare and the role, as well as answer any questions you might have.
- Plan how you will pitch yourself, including why you want to work for Moonfare and in this particular role. Brainstorm your most impressive, role-relevant skills and experiences. For example, if the position involves project management, think of an exciting project you ran, how you scoped it, who you involved, challenges, key learnings and how you determined whether it was a success. Preparing examples takes a lot of the stress out of the experience. For all interview responses, we recommend the STAR method (https://www.themuse.com/advice/star-interview-method).
- Read about our values, research what it takes to succeed in start-up/high-growth environments and brainstorm examples for these, too. - Do your research and try to understand our product. You can even sign up and access the real platform to dig even deeper.
- Come with your own prepared questions. Nothing says 'interested' more than a carefully-considered set of questions and rationale for wanting to join us.
All candidates who are invited to interview with us have the opportunity to request feedback. We'll let you know if we're no longer moving forward with your application via email, so you can ask for feedback by replying. You will be offered a feedback call from the Skills Assessment onwards, but we leave the decision to you.
Candidate experience is crucial to us. We use a tool called Survale to collect your feedback at each stage of our hiring process. We use your feedback, both positive and negative, to improve interviewer training, standards and efficacy.
Depending on whether you have external contact with clients/investors, our everyday dress code is casual and comfortable. For an onsite interview, we recommend thinking about the role and the type of impression you’d like to make.
If you're presenting, we recommend bringing your own laptop as you know your own equipment best. However, we have spare computers for onsite presentations if you don’t bring your own.
Being interested in the company and the product is a good sign. We encourage you to come prepared with questions.
Our standard process is to conduct reference checks with former employers once we have presented you with an offer. We do not need to speak with your current employer.
Working student: you must be a current university student in good standing and interested in working up to 20 hours per week during class periods (unlimited outside of class periods). Intern: if you’ve recently graduated from university and are looking to gain entry-level experience across a range of areas, we encourage you to apply for any internship in which you may be interested.
Our interns and working students receive an onboarding pack (provided by Mula), a laptop, a standing invitation to participate in team events and activities and access to our company-provided Smunch lunches. Many of our interns and working students have become invaluable members of our team and have gone onto full-time positions at Moonfare.
Because of the requirements associated with writing a thesis with a job placement, we cannot help with this.
We’re a modern financial technology company. This means that unless you have an external-facing role involving face-to-face meetings with potential clients (where more professional attire may be required), you are welcome to wear smart casual. T-shirts and shorts/jeans are fine.
It all depends on the role. We generally state in the job description whether travel is required. Even if it isn't specified, you may still need to travel on some occasions. Please feel free to discuss this at any stage of the interview process, alhough this will be explained to you, as well.
Growth is one of our core values and something that employees highlight as a major benefit of working with us. You will have plenty of opportunities to own end-to-end projects, bring new ideas to the table and deliver them. In addition:
- Each employee has a training and development budget that we call 'Moonfare Growth', equal to two percent of the base salary or €1,500, whichever is greater. Employees are encouraged to speak with their managers to plan how to align this budget with their needs.
- Sharing information and ensuring everyone is kept up-to-date on company developments is very important at Moonfare. We also teach each other how our teams come up with solutions to challenging problems during weekly teach-ins.
- Our team comes from a wide range of successful professional backgrounds with a lot of experience to share. By virtue of working in such an entrepreneurial environment, you’ll have the opportunity to work on unexpected projects. By doing so, you will expand your skills, abilities and flexibility to take on new challenges.
- We pride ourselves on recognising contributions and promoting from within. Not only will you have the opportunity to develop your skills: you'll also have the chance to progress into more exciting and challenging roles that align with your professional goals.
We are a diverse, international team from 40+ countries who speak at least as many languages. Our offiical language, however, is English.
Moonfare has a virtual stock option incentive program to ensure everyone has a real opportunity to share in the company's success. You will learn more about our virtual stock option program during the recruitment process.
