What we’re about
Defining the People of RisCura
When asked to describe the average person at RisCura, we normally talk about how it’s impossible to build a culture based on innovation, world-leading expertise and uniquely smart thinking without bringing together a very special group of human beings. Within our teams you will find a distinct, young-at-heart group of professionals who passionately want to do right by our clients, not to mention the millions of everyday people who rely on us to maximise investment performance so they can live richer lives. And considering what we do, it’s no surprise that the people who make up RisCura also constitute our biggest investment.
We’re proud of our diversity – not only on social and cultural levels but also across the professions and sciences we employ. From chartered accountants and advanced business brains to analysts, actuarial scientists, physicists, and technologists, we have been described affectionately as passionate geeks who create and deliver some of the most forward-thinking investment offerings available in the world today. Perhaps we are; because we do.
What’s So Special About the RisCura Culture?
Simply put, RisCura is a totally unique work environment. We create the spaces where future entrepreneurs are identified and nurtured, and where the next generation of financial rocket scientists, c-suite players (CEO, COO, CFO etc.) and visionary thinkers develop the skills to shape the future of investment finance. That’s why those who make it onto our graduate programmes soon find themselves with professional exposure beyond their role, with challenges that build both character and ability. Ours is a culture that supports and energises, where industry-changing concepts are encouraged and developed and where bold thinkers make their ideas come alive. Openness and honesty are not options and management hierarchy comes with more equality than you might expect in supporting an intellectually fertile environment of communication and thought-leadership.
So, Who is a RisCura Person?
The fact is, there are no average people at RisCura. What’s more, you’ll find nothing average about a career at RisCura, as you work with an illustrious variety of colleagues and clients, and on groundbreaking projects that push the boundaries of investment practice. As part of the development team, you’ll play an integral part in binding RisCura together, while playing your part in shaping the future of investment finance.
Our Engineering Processes
We follow an Agile approach to development, working in 2 week sprints. Our developers are involved in every aspect of the systems development lifecycle, from planning and analysis, to design and development, all the way through to testing and implementation. We focus on principles of clean code and best practices in technical output and continuously re-evaluate the way we do things with the aim of growing our skills and delivering high quality products for our clients.
Our Hiring Process
We start the process with an interview and a skills test (either written or PC based, depending on the role). If successful at this stage, you will meet other members of the team and/or the head of R&D.
