Company Overview

Akoya LLC was born out of FMR LLC, the parent of Fidelity Investments. Its success in helping to give consumers more control over their financial data led to Akoya being spun-off as an independent and innovative company that will operate a network for the entire financial services industry. During this interim period following the recent spin-off, Fidelity is continuing to support Akoya’s hiring efforts.

Akoya is an equal opportunity employer.
