Meet our Business Analysts
Start your Anmut Career
I graduated with a Bachelors’ degree in Art History and Russian from Amherst College. I then read for an MPhil in Russian and East European Studies at the University of Oxford. I joined Anmut in January 2021 as a Business Analyst.
Since I am a Business Analyst, I focus mostly on project delivery. The work is very varied, and I’ve done a bit of everything: writing reports, making slide decks, carrying out interviews, researching client problems and finding creative solutions, and even presenting to clients. I’ve worked in projects in two service lines so far, Data Valuation and Data Condition. I am also involved in internal work, mostly in the recruitment team and doing some marketing as well.
My favourite thing about working at Anmut is the culture. I joined in the middle of the third lockdown, so there could be no in-person training or induction, but everyone went out of their way to welcome me to the team, scheduling calls to get to know me. It’s a really great group of people. We work hard, but we are also encouraged to log off and have a life outside of work, and to take time off when we need it. And we are constantly giving feedback to each other, giving praise for great work and actionable advice where there is room for improvement.
Outside of work, I have an indoor jungle of houseplants that I take care of, and I like to swap cuttings to grow my collection. My biggest passion, though, is learning languages – I started with English as a child (my first language is Spanish), then continued with Portuguese, French, and Russian.
I graduated from the University of Bath, where I studied mechanical and electrical engineering. My focus was on AI and software, and this is my first job after graduating.
Something that surprised me about working here is the career path flexibility. While Anmut’s a young company with a solid strategy and plan going forward, we’re given lots of flexibility on how we want to contribute to this long-term plan. We each have a development manager to support us with our career goals – which is pretty common among firms – but what surprised me was the level of support in achieving my personal goals and choosing how I want to contribute (be it in terms of resources like training, or in terms of hearing me out and accommodating for what I want to do).
For me, the best thing about my job is the novelty of the work and the culture. The work we do is a brand-new approach to the field, and it feels like I’m contributing not just to the company but to the entire industry; it’s super exciting and fulfilling. As for the culture, the company acts with direction; the vision and values aren’t just marketing terms. I’ve seen them in each and every person throughout the company as well as within the company’s strategy. There’s genuine care and passion driving everyone, and it makes for a really motivating environment to work in.
To anyone applying, don’t forget that it’s a two-way assessment. Speaking from experience, you aren’t going to be interrogated, and the team’s going to create the best environment to see you put forth your best performance.
