Spectra Analytics - Careers


Working at a startup presents very different challenges to those faced at larger firms. There tends to be a much stronger emphasis on people and teams. Whilst larger firms may espouse the importance of their staff, in a small firm they are paramount.

Each individual is able to assist in developing the brand and culture, giving them a sense of “making it their own”. There is also more freedom and diversity within the roles and an opportunity to learn more quickly. This tends to help employees feel excited about their positions and eager to learn and progress. Furthermore, a flatter hierarchy often allows employees to feel more valued within the organisation.

Given the importance of people to a boutique firm, we place a great deal of emphasis on our hiring process. We aim to not only higher the best and brightest but also those with the drive and determination to thrive in an exciting but very challenging environment. The ideal employee must also identify with our vision and share our core values.

We aim to foster an environment that encourages learning, creativity and hard work.
