IT
After several years of outsourcing our IT systems, we started to build on our own inhouse IT team in 2019. ACT IT’s main goal is to enable company growth and scalability by using the latest tools and technologies. We are responsible for strengthening the technological foundations as well as allowing the company to take a step into the future with finding innovative solutions that address complex problems.
We are a multi-cultural team that strives to learn from each other and work together towards our common goals. It is our strong belief that by better understanding each other we can become more effective and enjoy our work while we’re at it.

Reach higher, do better and learn more

ACT is rapidly growing and evolving, offering ample opportunities to expand your knowledge and hone your skills. This has allowed me to continuously challenge myself in ways I hadn’t even foreseen. For example, within the first six months of joining ACT New York, I relocated to Amsterdam to lead a global project implementation.

 

This was an area I hadn’t had a great deal of experience in but management had faith in me and I had faith in the rest of the team. We all grew together through the experience. If you are willing to reach higher, do better and learn more, there really aren’t any barriers at ACT.

Implementing innovative tech

After working for well-known investment banks like JPMorgan, Barclays, and UBS in major financial centers across the globe, an idea of building IT systems from scratch got me excited and my journey at ACT took off. Since then there has never been a dull moment.

The challenges of the trading floor will push you to implement innovative technical ideas that are feasible in the short term.  The ever-changing and the dynamic trading floor will always keep you on your toes and ensures continuous learning. Learning new technologies as well as the business will help to expand your horizon. Working together as a team not only makes ACT fun to work at but also ensures a higher success rate. Celebrating success is something inherent to ACT and keeps you motivated to reach greater heights.

Creating something from scratch and making an impact

I chose to work at ACT because the challenge of being part of a successful company that’s growing exponentially appealed to me. When I heard the IT department was only formed very recently, I was thrilled at the opportunity to help to create something from scratch and the huge positive impact I could potentially bring to the company. Scale-ups are exceptionally challenging as there is a lot of structure that has to be put into place, processes to create, changes to manage – these are all things I find exciting. The best thing about doing this at ACT is getting to work with highly motivated, energized, entrepreneurial, friendly people who have shared goals and a shared spirit of getting things done.
