Argus (S21)
Unlocking the $5T of assets of employees with employer restrictions

Full-stack Senior Software Engineer

1+ years
About Argus

Argus lets employees who could have material nonpublic information, like bankers and consultants, trade compliantly with their employer restrictions. Today banks and consulting firms struggle over compliance restrictions and even pay fines when employees misuse their brokerages. The way Argus works is pretty simple: charge firms like Bain, partner with brokerages like Schwab, and allow employees to trade on their existing accounts.

About the role

About Us

Argus is building the next Schwab, with compliance as our wedge.

Today, 10M employees in finance, consulting, crypto etc. struggle to trade stocks and other assets because of employer compliance restrictions and cumbersome processes. We fix this for employees, unlocking their ~$5T in liquid assets. And our SaaS software automates compliance for firms, shrinking back office headcount and minimizing risk. We started Argus for ourselves (as two ex-Bain consultants), for our friends and families, and for all the employees who can't manage their financial wellbeing today.

We've just closed our seed round so are well-funded and growing quickly.

Our Values

Building: We prioritize building the company and the team, together; we embrace risks and long-shots.

Caring: We care deeply about each other, from celebrating the big wins and commiserating over losses to the casual conversations. Empathy defines our interactions.

Debating: We have a culture of rich debate about what is right for our company.
