About us

We are an ambitious team of traders, analysts and developers who design and run our own software for trading in financial markets. We started in 2013 as a bunch of poker professionals who took on an analysis of trading in the financial markets at Wood & Co. We quickly realized that these markets have great potential, and decided to explore new opportunities with Wood’s support.

Our team has 35 members today. We have a beautiful space on the roof of the Palladium offices within sight of the Prague Stock Exchange. We have grown a bit but the desire for continuous improvement is still written in our DNA; it is a necessity in this rapidly-developing market environment. We are an agile startup, which builds on open-source and has a minimum of bureaucracy. We believe that the full potential of an individual can’t be unleashed by micromanagement, but only by high responsibility and freedom given to everyone from day one.
