Anca, MOA Project manager, Algofienne depuis 2017
What is your current mission?
Currently I’m a Business Analyst working in the Anti-Money Laundry IT department within BNP Paribas Corporate and Institutional Banking (CIB). We are in charge of deploying various monitoring solutions that help track and investigate any suspicious activity and prevent illegal activities.
What is your professional specialty?
I am an Economist, with a Bachelor and Master’s degree in Financial and Stock Management, with extensive experience in Business and Data Analysis, Project Management and Lean Six Sigma practices.
Could you talk us about the international environment of your professional profile?
Ever since my professional career started, I had been working in multinational companies like Oracle and Honeywell, in Finance, Sales Operations or Project Management, with people based all over Europe, North and Latin America or Asia. But I wanted to submerge myself even more in this international cultural experience so I decided to move here and take on this challenge. I say challenge because I am not a French speaker, having studied only English and German in my academic years.
How did Algofi get in touch with you?
I found out about ALGOFI from a friend of mine who was working here. She referred me to the Commercial team and after a phone discussion and an in-person interview in July 2017, I received an offer. Two months after that, in September 2017, I moved to Paris (I was living in Bucharest, Romania prior to this) and started my mission at BNP Paribas. The Commercial team did a tremendous job and was able to find me a mission tailored to my experience, my desired workplace environment and my skills. Everything happened smoothly and quickly as the demand in English speaking professionals is very high, with most of ALGOFI’s clients being international entities where English is the official language.
How would you describe the availability of your Algofi managers?
I’m lucky to be part of such a supportive and open environment, which fosters teamwork and collaboration, both in BNP and ALGOFI, knowing I can always rely on my colleagues and count on a prompt and comprehensive response from my managers.
