They use these insights to drive amazing progress within their organizations. Our mission is to provide access to dispersed, hidden, and underutilized knowledge. We’ve made terrific progress working in this new space, but we’ve only just scratched the surface on how we can apply technology to this problem.

We believe that expertise can be transformative, and this view extends to the people we bring into our engineering organisation. You’ll be a key member of one of our multidisciplinary innovation pods, leveraging your unique experience, and expertise to make creative contributions to both our product and technical platform.

An Insider's view of AlphaSights

What are some social events your company does?

The Software Engineering team celebrates our successes with monthly team events, such as team dinners, "Beat the Bomb", Sofar Sounds concerts, drinks, etc. We also have an annual team-wide international off-site to bond with our colleagues across the globe. Last year we all met in Lisbon for a long weekend of fun activities.

Manor Lev-Tov

Director of Data Science

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The majority of our users are internal, so we enjoy working closely with many different teams to understand their needs and ideas. We have direct access to feedback and insights that drive our success and encourage us to get creative and try new things.

Leanne Lyons

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Our team loves learning from each other whether it’s through paired programming, going to/giving tech talks, or sharing the latest tech on Slack. We facilitate our engineers growth by providing a conference and learning budget, active mentoring, and enabling our devs to spend 10% of their time on sandbox days pursuing passion projects.

Kevin Lester

Vice President of Software Engineering

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Innovation often means allowing for failure, so we maintain a culture of openness to ideas, no matter how far-fetched. Our team reserves a "Sandbox Day" every iteration, giving time to experiment with new technology and implement new features. Engineering is a mix of discipline and creativity, and Sandbox Days bring out the best of both.

Heath Hohwald

Chief Technology Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The agency that people have to make their own mark on the company stands out to me. At AlphaSights, you define what you want to work on and what you think will be impactful at an earlier stage in your career. This autonomy fosters an energetic environment where people feel safe to create and try new things.

Tricia Maia

Director of Product
