Together we work on meaningful goals and solve complex problems. Our team is defined by a high-performance culture that values collaboration and meritocracy. We like being challenged and don’t mind putting in the hard work. While the recognition and extremely competitive compensation make it a sweet place to work at, we are united fundamentally by our love and curiosity for innovation in financial markets and technology.

current challenges

We are entrepreneurs, traders, engineers and scientists collaborating to push forward radical innovations in financial and trading technology. At Kronos, we research and develop advanced trading algorithms using mathematical and machine learning techniques.

Our edge in alpha research (intelligent algos) enable us to provide consistent liquidity to global participants at the most competitive prices while generating robust returns for our stakeholders, regardless of market conditions.

The next phase of our company will be about becoming the best place for liquidity and using that position to create positive change. Our ultimate goal is to provide the infrastructure to make investing and trading easier and fairer for people around the world.
