Bad investors think of making money without evaluating potential losses. Good investors think of ways to limit losses. StratiFi empowers good investors to enhance their efforts with technology and helps bad investors change behavior to become good investors by finding ways to limit losses.

StratiFi is building risk-management technology to make smarter investment decisions by identifying, defining and managing risk.

Our PRISM Ratings technology enables advisors and investors to upload their accounts, and then receive a risk score of one to 10.

Engineering at StratiFi
Engineering team and processes

We have a Product Manager who works with the CEO, Designer and Tech Lead to scope our the work for each sprint. We work in two-week sprints. We do TDD and have built robust systems and processes to allow us to deploy code to production as it gets ready. We use Pull Requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews. Every Monday we review the Product Roadmap and every Friday engineers demo what they are built and we encourage engineers to share what they are working on through screencasts on a regular basis. The deployment to production is managed by our Engineering Manager who also has a background in QA. All of our documentation is on Confluence and we use JIRA to manage the sprint. We do a monthly engineering check up to identify areas for improvement so that we can continuously build a better team.
