Working at Riverside
The Riverside Company is always seeking talented and motivated individuals to join our global team. Our vision is to become the preeminent private capital option for investors, business owners and employees at the smaller end of the middle market by fueling transformative growth and creating lasting value.
We believe that partnering with small companies to help make them bigger and better is rewarding work, and those rewards touch all roles within our company. Riverside’s history of growth and our entrepreneurial atmosphere have created a culture where you will be challenged and engaged.
Riverside’s Corporate Diversity Statement
The Riverside Company is dedicated to building a diverse workforce throughout all of its global offices. Riverside is committed to fostering an environment where each individual is empowered to share their unique perspectives and life experiences.
This inclusive and diverse atmosphere allows Riverside to attract higher caliber talent, better serve its employees and build connections with a more diverse universe of companies that would allow us to pick the best investment opportunities around the world.
We seek to lead by example and to set the industry standard for attracting, retaining and developing people that can share the wisdom and understanding that comes from various cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations. We will achieve our goals by continuing to run broad and fair hiring processes, engaging in regular discussion about diversity from the most senior levels of the firm, and opening our minds to learning from each other. We believe as a result of doing this, we will build a stronger, more diverse team and ultimately invest more effectively.
Riverside holds a weekly "Meeting of the Minds," affectionately referred to as the "MOM," where prospects, deals and current portfolio companies are reviewed and discussed in an open forum. Everyone, from the most junior transactor to the Co-CEOs, has a voice at the table during these crucial and highly interactive sessions.
Opportunities to Grow
Most Riverside partners rose up through the ranks of the firm. We have a long history of recognizing excellence and retaining our best employees. Many current Riversiders have changed positions, home offices and even countries. With 15 offices in 10 countries, you’ll have plenty of room to grow your career with us.
In our collaborative environment, you’ll always have a voice on a team of peers and mentors helping you succeed and thrive.
Always a Student
We provide countless learning opportunities throughout the year through "Riverside University" events. These are designed to help employees develop skills and talents to the fullest. Fund-specific conferences, Boot Camp for newbies, and an annual firm-wide meeting all contribute to continued growth for our staff and the firm.
Work and Life Balance
Good health is important to staying at the top of our game. In addition to generous paid time off, we offer a reimbursement plan for gym memberships and provide various wellness activities, contests and fundraisers throughout the year.
The Riverside Difference
Riverside strives to follow the Golden Rule and leave great references in our wake. Since 1988, we’ve learned that doing well and doing good are complementary behaviors. We believe that values matter and that our ethical practices designed to improve environmental, social and corporate governance issues lead to better investing, attracting business partners and more career opportunities.
