The Agave Group was started in 2007, with a focus on software engineering and algorithm development. Since then, we've been involved in a number of different projects, from developing algorithmic trading strategies to fixing a problematic race-condition in a legacy model at a too-big-to-fail financial institution. We've taught software best-practices to a large U.S. bank and helped take a hedge fund from concept to profitability.
