Start your Anmut Career
Yusuf, Head of Technology
I graduated from King’s College London with a BSc in Computer Science. Before joining Anmut, I worked as a software developer at a multinational investment bank and at several startups in London.
My role at Anmut is related to all things technology. My team helps take the product vision of our product architects and bring it to life. My particular role comes with a lot more responsibility than any other role I’ve had in the past. It’s been an amazing learning experience for me to be involved in aspects that fall slightly outside of my technology bubble, so I really appreciate that.
My favourite project experience so far was the first time we were able to see the brand-new infrastructure running seamlessly from start to finish. It was really satisfying to see months of hard work finally come together.
I was surprised by the high level of dedication and intelligence from everyone at Anmut. It’s very rare that you work at a place where everyone is at such a high level, but Anmut is full of these types of people. Not only are they easy to work with, they are also very friendly, personable and make you feel welcome as soon as you join the company.
I love the greenfield nature of my job, and being able to work with my team to choose which direction we feel is best for the team and the company. It’s really empowering to have that kind of responsibility and autonomy.
My main advice to applicants is to be curious and ask questions in your interviews. Ask questions about the company, about the team, and about data in general. If you’re passionate about what you do and you show a natural curiosity, you’ll do well.
I recently completed an MSc in Statistics with Data Science from the University of Edinburgh. Previously, I worked as a statistical consultant and studied at the University of Cape Town. I joined Anmut in September 2020 as a technical analyst in the consulting team.
My time spent in consulting was a mixture of interacting with clients, helping design new products, conducting research and building our software solutions. My day varied a lot from mainly being “bread and butter” consulting to technical work. What I enjoyed the most about this period was the fact that I could learn more about so many different disciplines: marketing, sales, business development and software development, to name a few.
This period helped me narrow down what I enjoyed and what I was good at doing. Now I am a software developer in the development team focusing on cloud technology and infrastructure. Anmut has provided me with a super flexible and supportive environment for me to pursue new career paths. The work I do at Anmut is very different to my previous jobs. It is an exciting challenge to build products that help businesses manage data as an asset. This industry forces you to think about both the technical and the business impacts of the software you are building.
Stefan, Backend Developer
I graduated from the University of Bristol with a BSc in Mathematics, and from King’s College London with an MSc in Complex Systems Modelling. I initially joined Anmut as a data scientist.
I typically spend my days designing and implementing data models, and building out APIs in our codebase. As someone who had little practical experience in coding before joining Anmut, one of the best things about my job has been the chance to learn so much about coding and to learn about the whole data and tech ecosystem that goes along with developing a product. But technical things aside, it’s really my manager and my teammates that are the best thing about my job.
My journey at Anmut has been one big, endless learning curve. Joining the company at such an early period of its existence (back when we were only 6) was extremely challenging at times, but it’s all those hard-learnt lessons that have helped me and the company grow into what we are today. I am incredibly proud of how far Anmut has come and where it is going, and I am even prouder of the part I have played in that.
In my spare time I love doing or watching sports, tennis and football in particular, as well as spending time with my friends and family.
