About Delphia

Delphia is the world’s first investment strategy anyone can improve with their data. We select stocks to a portfolio by analysing trends in both the data of our members and the market itself. This helps us predict which companies will win or lose and helping you earn 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 identifying trends or educating people on how their data can be used to make better investment decisions, 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 realise the true value of their data – and we're just getting started.

Delphia is a growing (37 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.

About the role

Delphia is looking for an experienced full stack software developer who is curious about fin-tech and passionate about building quality systems.

  • You’re curious about the technologies you use and take initiative to dive in and figure things out when you have a question
  • You have an opinion on things but are low on ego
  • You have 1-3+ years of experience

Bonus Points

  • You have a B.S. or M.S. degree in Computer Science
  • You’re curious about mobile development and fintech
