Akuna’s unmatched growth profile and non-client structure provides a unique place for innovation and opportunity in the FinTech industry. We develop all of our own software, hardware, trading algorithms, and models to drive our platform. We successfully combine the skills of our talented trading and quant team with industry-leading technology produced in-house by our development team. We have no clients or external investors and trade using our own capital. We trade significant market-share in listed derivatives across all major asset classes in the U.S. and directly compete with the largest market-making, arbitrage and high frequency trading firms in the world. Founded in 2011, Akuna Capital opened its doors in the heart of the derivatives industry and the options capital of the world – Chicago. Today, Akuna is proud to operate from additional offices in Boston and Shanghai. In 2016, we built a brand new office for our Chicago Headquarters. Our modern, collaborative workplace has sweeping views of the lakefront and city skyline, break-out areas, writeable walls and enough room to continue to grow.
Akuna’s employees enjoy a generous work-life balance and an extensive array of company-sponsored events, internal clubs and continuing education. Benefits include our annual sponsored weekend trip, Friday happy hours, and outdoor summer events in and around downtown Chicago. At Akuna, we offer boundless opportunities and foster a collaborative workplace with the entrepreneurial spirit that has fueled our rapid growth to date.
