At AQMetrics we have a highly skilled, experienced and diverse workforce with wide ranging backgrounds.
In a new series, we introduce you to our team. First up is Andrew Fox.
Andrew Fox, Senior Quantitative Developer
Describe your job in three words:
Focused, challenging, rewarding.
What is the most exciting thing you are working on?
Big data analytics and the multiverse that is financial risk.
How has your background helped with your role in AQMetrics?
My background was originally theoretical physics which then evolved into computer science, so my current role as quantitative developer couldn’t be more appropriate.
Best thing about working in AQMetrics?
The team makes it. Everyone is open-minded, down to earth, good humoured and most importantly willing to help anyone else at the drop of a hat. It’s a great environment for productivity, and a notable factor in why we produce great software
Who would you most like to swap places with for the day and why?
Maynard James Keenan. Musically – the man’s a genius, and he also produces delicious wine. What’s not to love.
What was the last book you read?
It was more of a short story – “The Last Question” by Isaac Asimov. It’s quite profound , and I’d thoroughly recommend it.
What websites do you visit the most?
Carzone probably – I have an urge to buy a classic vintage car at the moment.
Tell us something about yourself we don’t know.
I’m a classically trained tenor.
