Featurespace uses cutting-edge technology to combat fraud and financial crime on an international scale. Founded by Bill Fitzgerald, a University of Cambridge professor, and Dave Excell, it created the ARIC platform to monitor suspicious activity and alert banks and payment firms.

Striving for innovation is understandably one of its core values but the others give an insight into what it's like to work for this large company. They include telling the truth kindly, demonstrating generosity and empowering its employees to take the right decision for the customer – plus remembering to “keep the fridges full”.

The culture of Featurespace, which still has its UK headquarters in Cambridge, has remained a consistent factor in times of intense growth and development. It emphasises working as a team, having fun and achieving commercial success while combatting fraud and money laundering.

More than 30 global financial institutions use ARIC to protect their business and their customers, including HSBC, Worldpay and TSYS. The company aims to reinforce its values as it puts its customers, at home and overseas, at the forefront of every decision.

Featurespace makes a priority of doing what is best for customers and colleagues, ensuring the correct resources are available to its teams as well as development opportunities, knowledge sharing, mentoring and shadowing. Individuals are supported to feel empowered, with the autonomy that allows them to be creative. They are adaptable to different ways of working and have a goal-oriented approach.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

83% of staff agreed

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team

As leaders and ambassadors for the organisation, senior managers are available to all team members to have open and honest conversations around any topic or concern. They communicate regularly within their departments through town halls and away days, while encouraging other team-building activities for smaller units.

My Company

85% of staff agreed

I love working for this organisation

The All Hands open forum allows staff to ask questions and engage with each other, and proved its value when the pandemic struck by offering reassurance and a sense of community for a remote workforce. Managers helped staff to celebrate achievements and share a smile.

Wellbeing

74% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

A flexible approach by management to working hours and childcare has helped staff deal with Covid-19. They are encouraged to take active breaks and use their holiday entitlement. There is also support for those who are working away from their families and home countries.
