An Insider's view of Supernova

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our vibe is really fun and energetic! It is an open spaced loft in River North. Nobody has an office and even the CEO and CTO sit in rows of desks with all of the other employees. People are always working together. We have a fridge and pantry stocked with snacks, a pool table and casual dress.

Jaramee

Controller

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Supernova enables wealth management firms to offer securities-based loans, an attractive liquidity solution, to their clients. Historically, setting up SBLs was very cumbersome. Our solution not only supports competitive borrowing rates, but is also easy to use and includes robust collateral management and risk monitoring capabilities.

Kristin

Sr. Vice President of Business Development

What makes someone successful on your team?

One quality that comes to mind is a positive attitude. When one brings a positive energy into their workspace their teammates draw from it and everyone is more productive as a whole. Successful people are open to advice — different perspectives shed light on problems and provide insight that one may not discover on their own.

Peter

Security/Dev Ops Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

When we started Supernova, we wanted to create a culture of open communication and collaboration to share ideas and best practices. No one has an office. I sit with the rest of the team and purposely keep my calendar as clear as possible so I can participate and be involved in organic discussions that are often my favorite part of the day.

Jeff

Head of Operations

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm excited about being able to calculate the probability of call in our collateral management system; which combines advanced statistical analysis and financial knowledge to predict the performance of all the holdings in the collateral accounts. We want to provide the most accurate and configurable financial data to our clients.
