Data and AI company Future Anthem has doubled its workforce since the company’s Series A raise in July 2022.

In just over 12 months, the team has expanded from 21 members to 43, setting the stage for further expansion.

Notably, over two-thirds of the team are now data science experts, while a number of new recruits have joined from top-tier gambling companies, including William Hill, Churchill Downs, Ladbrokes Coral, Betway, and Gaming Realms.

To accommodate its growing team, the company recently opened a brand-new office in Shoreditch, a tech hub in East London.

“We are proud to have assembled a team of experts who not only possess exceptional technical abilities but also deep insights into the specific dynamics of the sports betting and gaming industry,” said Emma Ferguson, head of people at Future Anthem.

“By harnessing the knowledge and expertise of our diverse workforce, we are well-positioned to develop AI products that address the evolving needs of our clients and drive transformative change within the industry,” she added.

From intern to employee

Future Anthem’s recruitment strategy also focuses on nurturing emerging talent, as evidenced by seven full-time employees who transitioned from intern roles after graduating with degrees in data science and artificial intelligence from renowned UK universities.

Furthermore, recruitment efforts have extended beyond technical roles with a focus on commercial hiring, including the recent appointment of Ann-Kathrin Baumgardt, VP of sales and customer development for Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA).

The Future Anthem workforce now represents 16 different nationalities and represents a gender split of 40% female and 60% male.
