About Kooltra


Years working in a foreign exchange brokerage taught our founder, Adam, firsthand about the barriers smaller institutions face in the FX market. To compete in a system built for larger players, they had to piece together rigid, legacy stand-alone software, build everything themselves from scratch, or make do with emails, spreadsheets and grit. Believing that capital markets should encourage as much competition and innovation as possible, Adam founded Kooltra in 2014 with a vision of building technology to democratize capital markets.


Today, Kooltra’s cloud-based platform automates workflows, provides real time analytics, and seamlessly connects customers and their clients. Using the most innovative cloud-based technology, our platform increases efficiency and transparency, improves connectivity, and reduces risk, both internally in an organization and across the entire ecosystem.


If you want to join a rapidly growing fintech team that is delivering next-gen software to customers in a $5 trillion a day market, then we’d like to hear from you. You don’t need foreign exchange experience to succeed- just a curiosity to learn and the drive to make those around you better.
