AQMetrics is an innovative global software company that recognizes the importance of human capital, diversity and inclusion. A diverse mix of software, regulatory and risk professionals, we help some of the world’s largest asset managers and asset service providers with their regulatory and risk needs.
Nora Grendon, AQMetrics Head of Human Resources, recently took time out to describe her role – and why finding talent even during a global crisis is at the fore of AQMetrics human strategy agenda.
AQMetrics’ talented workforce
AQMetrics is focused on developing its people strategy and aims to continue to attract, retain and develop talent successfully. As part of my role, therefore, I’m responsible for developing a talent management and resourcing strategy.
No company would be what it is without its people. And at AQMetrics, we believe our people are the most important part of the company and our continued success. That’s especially true because AQMetrics is a leader in providing risk and regulatory reporting software to asset and investment managers – and it’s a fast-growing start-up with truly global ambitions.
So, what does the AQMetrics team look like? Our talent is multilingual, diverse and located around the globe. We also come from a range of specialised backgrounds, be it software, law, fund administration, the media, and finance.
And we’re currently hiring as we continue our European and US expansion. In recent weeks, I’ve spent much of my time speaking to candidates for customer success, sales and marketing roles. As we value diversity, however, I also look outside the industry we serve for transferable skills and candidates that may offer something different or special.
Right now, we are looking for talent in engineering and QA, and we’re particularly interested in hearing from people with full stack and QA automation experience.
Why work for AQMetrics?
So, why would you want to work for AQMetrics? A fast-growing start-up with offices in Ireland, the UK and France. AQMetrics is so much more than a regulatory reporting and risk firm. We were recently recognised as one of the top 50 most exciting fintech start-ups in Europe by the FinTech50, from over 2,000 entries, and continue to be true innovators in our field.
Not only do we have an exciting – and rapidly growing – stable of clients, but we are constantly developing new tools and solutions for our customers too. Whether it’s artificial intelligence, automation, or quantitative risk management, AQMetrics offers targeted, easy-to-use solutions. A young and nimble company, we are a creative force that can act rapidly to help our clients meet their evolving regulatory and risk needs, whatever they may be.
And despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we have truly global ambitions.
Not only have we recently expanded into France and Luxembourg, but we are also growing our services in the US – a huge and highly lucrative frontier for financial fintech companies such as AQMetrics.
Before Covid-19, meanwhile, the team was constantly travelling, whether it was to meet clients, meet with prospects, or roadshow our solutions, as we recognise that it’s important to be close to our clients and build a global reputation.
A great place to work
Finally, AQMetrics prides itself on being a great place to work. Competitive salaries and a range of benefits, including private health, are just one aspect. We also want to be a caring company that can look after its employees, no matter the global situation. To that end, we offer flexible working hours, mental health days, and team activities, such as yoga, walks, and social outings (or online get togethers during Covid-19).
