Your success
is our success

We are ambitious and strive for success, both for our portfolio companies and our own organization. Our employees are a huge part of that: when they succeed, we succeed. Therefore, we look for excellence, an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to communicate transparently. Someone that fits in the Waterland team and shares our mindset. But what would it be like for you, to work at Waterland? You can find out here.

What we stand for

As a team, we support ambitious entrepreneurs on a daily basis, helping them carve out their place in today’s competitive markets. Our values always lead the way – whether we are supporting others or adding new members to the team.

Entrepreneurial mindset

We are known for our entrepreneurial mindset. Our team is strong but humble and strives for optimal results.

Inclusive and Diverse

Diverse team members from different backgrounds, with different experiences and views. Those are the people we are looking for. We appreciate and respect the perspectives they bring to the table and we love that all our employees can be their most authentic selves. We also offer extended maternity and paternity leave.

Flat structure

Our organisation keeps a dynamic and flat structure, enabling us to be proactive and agile.

Open communication

We understand that, through open communication, our culture will be able to evolve and improve each day. For instance, we have deliberately taken the decision to not set formal policies that focus on working from home, career breaks etc. We experience that open communication about these topics will ultimately lead to higher engagement.

One exception, though: our policy on extended maternity and paternity leave.

One team + collaboration

Our people come first. Everyone, no matter the position, department or experience level, is part of the team and is involved in the complete investing process and all related activities, be it behind the scenes or in the frontline. Every project is a chance for us all to learn and come up with new solutions.

I don’t think there’s anywhere else where I would have had so much exposure to exciting projects in such a short amount of time.
