Brooklyn, New York
The Community Outcomes Fund
Maycomb Capital is a pioneering impact investing platform. We provide financing across
asset classes to fund strategies and enterprises that transform communities. At Maycomb,
we know that the world’s problems demand patience, creativity, and an appreciation for
complexity. We drive capital toward effective solutions for underserved communities,
using data and rigorous analysis to guide our decisions. We identify scalable and
sustainable paths to positive change, tackling entrenched social and economic challenges.
By harnessing the scale, expertise, and risk tolerance of the private sector in service of the
public good, we’re demonstrating what’s possible with mission-focused, flexible capital.
We’re named for Maycomb County, the setting of Harper Lee’s classic novel To Kill a
Mockingbird. Lee used Maycomb, a fictional district in Depression-era Alabama, as a
backdrop for her universal story of the pursuit of justice. Her story sparked conversations
about equity that still resonate today. Maycomb seeks to continue this dialogue, bringing
innovative ideas to light through action.
This position would be focused on one of Maycomb’s flagship funds, the Community
Outcomes Fund, as well as other efforts to provide flexible, mission-aligned debt to impact
enterprises. Cross cutting the work at Maycomb Outcomes is a commitment to expanding
access to economic opportunity for low-income families and individuals. The Analyst may
work across a variety of vehicles and custom strategies under the management of the
Maycomb Outcomes team.
