Solidus is a Swiss-based technology company partnering with financial institutions to modernize a large niche in the investment industry.
We power the core infrastructure and customized end-user applications so that financial institutions can lead innovation in the digital economy. Our products make it possible for anyone to build lasting savings directly from their existing bank account.
CEO and Co-founder
Eliot pioneers new financial technology to help people flourish. He both modernized core infrastructure for leading financial institutions at EY and earned $100M+ in profit for investors through investments in fintech and precious metals at the $1B hedge fund PilotRock.
CTO and Co-founder
Andrew builds technology to radically improve people’s lives. As an engineering leader at Google working across 3 international offices, he tackled problems from UX to machine learning and developed Gmail innovations for 1 Billion users as Tech Lead of Gmail’s Web Team.
Partner, Finance and Risk
Robert combines over 20 years of financial industry experience from leading institutions to build rigorous, scalable platforms. He led diverse international teams over 10+ years at Goldman Sachs Switzerland and as Financial Controller of Rothschild Bank AG.
Henry brings extensive experience and perspective for sound decision making. During a 30-year bank executive career, as COO, he built BB&T from a local bank with $400M in assets into the 10th largest publicly traded bank in the US with $200B in assets.
WHO WE ARE
We’re a tenacious team of specialists in consumer technology and financial markets supported by an experienced bench of investors and advisors. We are driven to make a positive impact on the world by modernizing an archaic industry and empowering anyone to achieve financial security. Our open office environment is easy-going, everyone gets rewarding compensation including equity, and each team member also receives a unique perk — the ability to drive philanthropic endeavors through our largest shareholder, Solidus Foundation.
HOW WE WORK
User-centric design is applied to every aspect of our products. Our engineering team collaborates closely with our designers to create simple, powerful, and instant UIs. We grapple with challenges like building machine learning-based robo-investing advice into a beautiful, intuitive UX.
Security is a guiding principle for our system architecture. Our team is applying broad experience including previous projects for Western intelligence agencies.
Cloud computing has been standard practice for most of our team since before it was cool. Running global-scale, distributed systems at Google has taught us to expect low-latency, fault-tolerant systems as the norm. This drives the foundation of our infrastructure to be rock-solid, reliable, and robust to failure. Even the failure of an entire data center would be largely unnoticed by users.
