Blockchain acquires London-based team as company continues hyper growth
We’ve been busy executing on our mission to deliver more products and services that enable you to store, trade, transact and most importantly maintain complete control of your crypto. At the core of investing in the future is investing in scaling our world class team. Today, we’re excited to announce an important step forward with the acquisition of Stratagem.
Stratagem has brought together some of the brightest minds in Europe across data science, quantitative research, and machine learning. Since their founding, they have developed cutting edge machine learning software to understand the highly volatile nascent market of sports betting. We were instantly impressed with the braintrust they had created and found immediate synergies between our two companies.
“We are thrilled to join Blockchain and strongly believe this is the right platform to leverage the expertise built up at Stratagem since its founding. We’re delighted to join the team and look forward to the journey ahead!” – Charlie McGarraugh, CEO of Stratagem
At Blockchain, we will apply their talent and machine learning technology inside our execution services platform, smart order router, machine trading platform and more to further ensure we’re offering best execution to both our retail and institutional customers.
The Stratagem team hails from top institutions including Cambridge, Oxford and the financial sector with careers at Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and UBS. We’re thrilled to have the Stratagem team work alongside us to develop machine learning and AI for crypto as we work to build an entirely new financial system.
Blockchain has doubled since the start of the year and we’re not stopping! If you’re interested in joining us, visit blockchain.com/careers to see our open roles and apply.
