About Delphia

Delphia is building a new kind of asset management business that re-thinks the value data and how it can be used to gain an edge in the market. We believe that managing peoples' data, alongside their money, can unlock new forms of wealth creation in peoples' lives.

To accomplish this, Delphia allows anyone to improve its investment strategies by connecting the apps on their phone to their investment account, which in turn, unlocks access to trends in the data and proprietary investment strategies, including the Delphia 500 which aims to beat the popular S&P 500 index.

Whether we're identifying trends or educating people on how their data can be used to make better investment decisions, the people at Delphia are socially-minded creatives at heart. Our teams are continually iterating, solving hard problems, and collaborating to generate new forms of value and economic returns. We want people to realize the true value of their data — and we're just getting started.

Delphia is growing! Our multi-disciplinary team is 90 people strong and located around the world with offices in New York, Toronto and London, England. The company was founded in 2018 and is a graduate of Y Combinator and the Creative Destruction Lab. We’ve raised three rounds of funding and approximately $77 million to date.


About the Role:

Delphia is creating a new category of systematic investing that uses ML/DL to forecast the fundamentals of global public equities. We model the world through the lens of causality and are interested in what economic outcomes get rewarded by markets when you move out beyond the noise of the short horizon (where markets behave like a voting machine).

• Build or improve tooling around the software development processes
