Director, Software Engineering

Delphia's mission is to develop an online marketplace in which people and companies can invest their data as assets, control how those assets are used, and realize the economic returns that their data generates. Through our various apps and services, we're building a new kind of company that completely rethinks the value of privacy, data, and accountability. 

Delphia is a small team people located near Queen and Bathurst in downtown Toronto. We started in January and have already graduated from YCombinator and received a sizeable seed round investment, with interest from additional investors.

Whether we're tweaking the most minute interface details, or analyzing giant data sets, people at Delphia are creatives at heart. Our teams are continually iterating, solving problems, and working together to build new ways to generate economic returns for our users. Working together, we can help people to realize the actual value of their data - we're just getting started.
