Women at Archiact: Meet Ariel Zhou

Posted on 25 October 2017

Did you know? Archiact’s finance team is completely women-run. The team lead? No other than Ariel Zhou! She’s the one who keeps all of Archiact’s finances nicely in ‘cheque.’

Since only 26% of women hold computing and mathematics jobs (a number that’s a little too low for our liking), we’re showcasing the women who work at Archiact to support #WomenInTech. Last week, you met Sarah, one of our 3D Generalists (you should definitely check it out if you haven’t already!). This week, meet our fantastic Finance Manager, Ariel.
