A bunch of humble, compassionate, curious game-changers

Talos is a global, non-hierarchical team of engineers, architects, product developers, and leaders: a flat organization with a well-rounded team.

Global Expertise

Bound by the principles of inclusivity, fairness, openness, and flexibility

At Talos, everyone has a valued voice and our differences are synthesized into superior products and a diverse culture. Our team has come to Talos from many of the world’s top finance and technology organizations.

We know that building great systems takes time, so we focus on non-functional requirements like design, refactoring, testing, safety, security, and performance. We also give back to the open-source community when we can.

With extensive experience on the vendor and client-side, we’re intimately familiar with the requirements of both the buy-side and service-provider community from a technology, workflow, regulatory compliance and service perspective.
