Hi guys, I've searched the forum but didn't find any particular information regarding the hiring process of the vision fund. Do they use recruiters or referrals? Has anyone gone through their interview process? What are they looking for at Associate/VP level? What is the culture like? How rigorous is their due diligence process given it seems that decisions are made solely by Masa. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
