Work Alone or with a Team


Just kidding! You can't work alone here. If you're looking for an internship or position on our team (we hope you are 😁) this gives us a chance to see how you collaborate with others.




Our offices in downtown Sydney are an awesome location for the event. You can move in, eat, camp out and grab a shower in our facilities. It is a comfortable and convenient space to collaborate and build stuff that matters.

Office 4546, Level 45
680 George Street,
Sydney CBD




Don't have it all figured out? That's ok. We'll be there to help on-site. Plus your team is the best resource for learning new stuff.


Our "Secret Sauce"

It's open-source so I guess our secret sauce is not all that secret. Project L3 Atom is bringing high-resolution crypto trading data to the market. Our next big milestone involves the world's first all-in-one quant research & algorithmic trading solution for both centralized and decentralized exchanges.

Up to 7,500 AUD in Prizes

Don't do it just for the money. Well... you can... but do it for the experience. You'll have access to some of the most progressive thinkers in their fields. Do you want to build a professional network for your future? This is the place to start.
