Our Culture

Angus Hopkinson spent some time with the company as an intern while reading maths at University of Cambridge.  “It’s pretty easy to learn a lot very quickly when you’re surrounded by people more than willing to answer any and every question”, he explains.  “The hierarchy is very flat;  anyone from any level can comfortably contribute to any discussion, which creates a much nicer atmosphere where bosses are more like teammates.  Angus joined the BI team as Customer Insight Analyst and has since progressed to manage a team of analysts.
