We’re witnessing the development of an entirely new generation of financial assets. For financial technologists, this evolution of financial market infrastructure represents a once-in-a-career opportunity.
At Talos, we’re seizing upon this opportunity. We are a tightly-knit but decentralized team of highly-experienced engineers and businesspeople based in New York, Sweden, and around the world.
We’re building upon best practices from both traditional markets and the crypto ecosystem, incorporating best-of-both-worlds expertise into an extensible digital asset trading platform that enables institutional market participants to interact seamlessly with each other via a single point of access.
We are an intellectually curious, compassionate, and humble bunch consisting of engineers, architects, designers, product developers, and businesspeople. In contrast to traditional hierarchical work environments, our structure is flat.
At Talos, we always have each others’ backs, and we go the extra mile for our customers and for each other. Our community is based upon simple principles like inclusivity, fairness, openness, and flexibility. Each person has a valued voice, and our differences synthesize into superior work products and a diverse culture.
Geographically, we resemble the distributed nature of crypto. Interpersonally, we are close knit, with doors (both real ones and Zoom-generated) always open.
We take a collaborative and systematic approach to problem solving. Everyone’s voice is heard and appreciated, and everyone is expected to make an impact.
The sky isn’t even the limit in crypto! We want entrepreneurial, non-linear thinkers who are passionate about their work and can imagine solutions that use these new systems in creative, groundbreaking ways that will reshape the entire industry forever.
Talos is — in essence — a technology firm. We’ve built a best-in-class, trusted, high-performance trading platform that operates at the intersection of traditional global markets and the crypto economy.
We’ve been building the Talos platform from scratch — purpose-built for the unique challenges this industry faces — via development best practices and modern tools. We work together as true teammates, encouraging each other to think creatively, to innovate, and to help each other learn. Our engineers are involved in market research, product design, and the full development-to-release lifecycle, including testing, deployment, and monitoring.
While we deliver solutions quickly to keep pace with the dynamic digital assets space, quality over quantity is our mindset.
Our team has come to Talos from many of the world’s top finance and technology organizations, including AQR, Broadway Technology, Coinbase, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Citigroup, Millennium, Bloomberg, MarketAxess, EPAM, Barclays, and more. We know that building great systems takes time, so we focus on "non-functional" requirements like design, refactoring, testing, safety, security, and performance as well. We also give back to the open-source community when we can.
While having the best technology is integral to our success, our team’s decades of experience in the institutional trading space has taught us one undeniable business principle: product-market fit is key to success. We listen to the pain points of our customers and take the extraordinary steps to build tools they need to position themselves for success.
Are you an engineer that wants to work with the very best? Are you a salesperson who wants to sell a product that (almost!) sells itself? Are you an account manager that wants to work with (and for) the premier institutions in crypto? If so, we want you.
Join us on our collective mission to bring the best institutional-grade technology to digital asset trading!
