Client Operations Analyst  (Full or Part Time)

About us 

We are a scale-up FinTech company that is transforming the way that professional investors make investment decisions. Our behavioural analytics service, provided to the world’s top fund managers, is powered by machine learning technology and is proven to help our clients to make measurably better decisions, resulting in higher investment returns.

Essentia has a very strong culture, based on authenticity and mutual respect. We embrace flexible working, and therefore place a high value on clear and timely communication. We have cared about diversity since day one and are proud that our team includes people from a wide variety of ethnicities, age groups, genders, backgrounds and interests.

Essentia has been honoured with multiple awards, including The Guardian’s Startup of the Year, the Hedge Fund Journal’s Best Performance Data Analytics, and HFM Week’s Best New Fintech Solution for Hedge Funds.

The Essentia team comprises over 35 employees, with a further team of Insight Partners, in London (HQ) and New York. Our clients are some of the world’s largest and best-known equity hedge and traditional long-only fund management firms, as well as smaller funds. Demand for our service is increasing rapidly as professional fund managers face significant countervailing trends, including stiff competition from low-fee index funds. Many now realise that they must continually prove and improve their investment skill using the most effective services and technology available. They are now turning to systematic and AI-driven approaches to continuous improvement – that’s where Essentia comes in.
