Invest in cryptocurrency, private equity, venture capital, real estate & other alternative assets with your Alto IRA.
We’re a rapidly-growing, Nashville-based fintech that’s changing how people save and invest in alternative assets like cryptocurrency, real-estate, artwork, farmland, and more! We’re creating a next-generation self-directed IRA platform to give people the tools they need to invest in things they know and care about. Plus, we have fun doing it. Our culture is all about empowerment, inspiration, and respect.
We’re looking for more innovative, passionate people to join us on our journey to help people create their own financial futures. Our goal is to transform the retirement investing industry, and we're building our team with people who are committed to our mission and values.
Why join us?
We recently raised $17M led by Unusual Ventures, with additional participation from existing investors Moment Ventures, Acrew Capital, and Alpha Edison, and strategic investments from Carta, Coinbase Ventures, Franklin Templeton, New York Life Ventures, and Stone Ridge Holdings Group.
To support our tremendous growth, our engineering team needs to triple in size by the end of 2021.
Engineering at AltoIRA
Our engineering team works in two week cycles. Each begins with a meeting to discuss what's being worked (Sprint Planning). Each Wednesday of a Sprint, we spend an hour grooming/estimating upcoming tickets (we use points which represent estimated time). Each team has their own dedicated product manager who they work directly with on solutions for their respective domain. We use the novel Tara.ai project management platform in conjunction with GitHub for managing reviews and task status. We utilize CI/CD for lower environments, with production requiring specialized deployment privileges because we operate in a regulated industry.
We're running two races: the first is the alternative investing race which is a marathon itself. The second is a 24/7/365 Le Mans of the Cryptocurrency/DeFi world. The incumbent industry operates at a snails pace, which is why our ability to move quickly inherently sets us apart from our competitors. As we define and automate strategies to gain efficiency in this industry we will continue to grow at a break-neck pace.
