We are a team built on talent where industry knowledge, disciplined process execution, and negotiation expertise is molded into every team member.

Shea & Company is built on the foundation of exceptional teams and leaders. Our partners average over 20 years working with emerging leaders in software, as well as with the industry’s largest and most established diversified technology vendors.  We pride ourselves on being instrumental partners and advisors for our clients. Our firm is routinely recognized for the quality of our work, informed decision-making and the exceptional nature of our focused talents.  Our team contributes tremendous value to our client management teams, shareholders and stake holders, and embodies a level of integrity, intensity and transaction instinct that is unwavering and the foundation of our uncompromising focus on clients and results.


We pride ourselves on a culture that breeds teamwork, transparency and results. Across our firm, we believe in the promotion of diversity of thought with a focus on building collaborative leaders. With a supportive culture that promotes intellectual curiosity, Shea & Company promotes malleable expectations where effective communication is not only encouraged, but also expected. We have a genuine affinity for creating a positive office ambiance where our employees not only excel, but also feel embedded in a culture of professional growth, incremental progress and trust.

Professional Development

Our continued success as a firm is rooted in the dedication and expertise of our team. At Shea & Company, we ensure all employees are connected to executing the firm’s overall strategic goals by taking a very hands-on approach to development, allowing individuals to gain direct experience in deal execution, market exploration and business development. We have adapted our teaching model to a quintessential professional development strategy by providing in-house training, external crash courses, and quarterly “teach-ins” whereby we push our team to continue learning and developing their skills, fostering effective preparation for a successful future in our industry. With a strong focus on mentorship and support, Shea & Company puts great emphasis on career trajectory, both internally and externally. We offer both a path to continued promotion within the firm and have seen our alumni avail exceptional opportunities at leading investment firms such as TCV, Norwest, Spectrum, PSG, technology leaders like Google and Riverbed and top business schools like Harvard Business School and UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. Fostering a supportive mentorship program is paramount to us and developing our employees professionally has always been viewed as a key goal for the firm.

Join our team
We’re looking for experienced junior and senior professionals for our Boston and San Francisco offices, and actively recruit on campus in the fall for Investment Banking Analysts, Business Development Analysts and Summer Analyst Interns.

Analyst and Summer Analyst roles at Shea & Company offer a diverse set of responsibilities, including the execution of live transactions, generation of marketing and pitch collateral, financial analysis including valuation, capital structure and value flow modeling and the creation of software market segment landscapes and industry “thought pieces.” Shea & Company’s Analysts are key members of the team who have significant client-facing responsibilities and are involved in all aspects of client management and interaction, responsible for driving the flawless execution of the firm’s M&A and private placement transactions. We don’t expect our Analysts to come in as “industry experts” in software, but candidates for the role should be excited to learn about technology, financial analysis and the process of providing strategic advice to leading companies. Top performing interns are offered full-time roles upon graduation. Shea & Company recruits on campus at a handful of top undergraduate programs, and we welcome applicants to apply through our website if we’re not on campus directly for both full time and intern roles.

“It was surprising how steep the learning curve was even with a few years of bulge bracket experience under my belt when I joined Shea & Company. The depth of enterprise software expertise and the efforts they put in to maximize client outcome are what differentiate the brand. The company promotes a culture of openness and transparency. Everyone has a voice and any idea is judged by its own merit regardless of who proposed it. I have enjoyed a tight-knit environment where people would go above and beyond to support me both at work and in life. I am truly thankful for the mentorship and the friendship that still remains after my time with Shea & Company.”

“SheaCo was a great place for me to start my career. Boutique banks tend to offer younger folks more experience in general given the smaller team sizes; but SheaCo as a whole also punched above its weight in terms of deal quality. It gave me a crash course in enterprise software which has really helped me in terms of where I am in my career today. Finally, the people on the team I worked with were great, and made the late nights that inevitably come in banking much better.”

Currently at WeWork, Product Management

“Having started as an analyst at Shea & Company, I immediately recognized that it is not only a great place to start a career, but also an ideal platform to build a career long term. The opportunities for growth and advancement are nearly limitless — the firm has a culture of fostering employee growth and history of promoting from within. 12+ years into my journey at Shea & Company, I am still being challenged and learning everyday.”
