About the role

About Delphia:

Delphia is the world’s first investment strategy anyone can improve with their data. We select stocks to a portfolio by analyzing the trends in the data of our members. This helps us predict which companies will win and which will lose, letting us earn you the returns you deserve.

We are building a new kind of company that re-thinks the value of privacy, data rights, and fiduciary responsibility in order to ensure your data is always working for you – like your money.

Whether we're educating people on how their data can be used to make better investment decisions or identifying future trends, 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 for our users (we call them “members”, in fact). Working together, we want people to realize the true value of their data – and we're just getting started.

Delphia is a growing (~40 people), multi-disciplinary team located in the heart of downtown Toronto and around major North American cities. We began in January 2018 and are graduates of Y Combinator and the Creative Destruction Lab. We’ve raised two rounds of funding and approximately $20 million to date.
