Careers at Aveni
Fusing your passion with our mission.
We pride ourselves on our varied perspectives and work together, openly and honestly. We are technologically driven to make a positive impact on the financial service industry.
We wrap technology around human interaction, allowing us to focus on what we’re good at, building relationships, being human.
At Aveni, people are at the heart of everything we do. We acknowledge our differences and use them to our advantage. We know the importance of creating an environment where we can share ideas freely to best serve our clients.
We’re not afraid to think differently. We experiment and are here to change the status quo. We’re open to change and aren’t afraid to fail, because we know it will help us grow.
We know what matters – clarity, honesty and a great product. We want you to be yourself and bring your whole self to work where you will be part of our “work family”.
We’re hungry and eager to learn. We love to solve problems and explore new challenges. We strive to improve ourselves and the products we offer.
Our skills and expertise are shared throughout and we offer a hand when needed. We don’t have junior/senior roles, because everyone brings value to the team.
At Aveni, we believe the best way to build products/services is by building the most diverse team possible. Please note, Aveni does not accept agency CVs. Please do not forward CVs to our recruiters or employees.
It’s inspiring, energetic and always evolving! At Aveni we help you achieve your goals in a fast-paced environment, giving you the opportunity to continuously grow.
I could tell from the first couple of interviews that Aveni wasn’t looking for people who already had all the required knowledge – they were looking for people willing to go outside their comfort zone and constantly pick up new skills.
We founded Aveni initially to shake up the financial advice industry. We saw there was a gap where machine learning and great engineering could change the industry for the better. The existing founders had some good ideas, I had the engineering insights and product focus to make it a reality and off we went.
I’ve been able to learn so much more in a short space of time. Also, the smaller size of the company allows me to have more autonomy to experiment with new ideas and challenge current situations.
Working in startups allows you the opportunity to wear many hats which gives you the luxury of experiencing all aspects of the business. It’s a great way to start your career as it helps you to determine pretty quickly what you enjoy doing.
I love it, hands down the most rewarding thing about working for Aveni is the ability to learn as you go. It’s so fast paced and we have to try out tools and approaches that are new to us but everyone is really supportive of each other and willing to help.
I also really enjoy the variety of work you get at a startup. We don’t have any silos – no dedicated front end developers or testers or data scientists – everyone has to get their hands dirty with a bit of everything. It definitely keeps things interesting!
Startup life definitely has its ups and downs! As cliche as it may be though, the variety and impact your decisions have is definitely what I enjoy most. There is no hiding so everyone has to work together to ensure we are moving forward which is a refreshing change from a life in big corporates.
