She is currently working as deputy director general of the European Commission's Joint Research Center (JRC).

Before heading to the European Commission, Rute worked as CEO of Estonian state-owned financial institution KredEx. Rute holds a MBA from Danube University Krems in Austria and a MA in international politics from the Centre Europeen de Recherches Internationales et Strategiques (CERIS) in Brussels. She was also a fellow at Harvard University in 2013.

The board of the Bank of Estonia consists of the governor and two deputy governors. Since June 7, the central bank has been led by previous deputy governor Madis Muller, whose term of office as governor is to last seven years. The term of office of the second deputy governor, Ulo Kaasik, is to end in the summer of 2021.
