Technology at our core
Orbis combines the innovation of a tech start-up with the financial expertise and resources of an established fund manager. Our in-house data scientists use machine learning, natural language processing and statistical analysis to provide our analysts with proprietary insights which help inform the stock-picking process.
Technology is central to what we do. Our developers turn ideas into reality, take ownership over major projects and make a meaningful impact on the overall direction of the company. From our cloud based analytics platform to our sentiment analysis – nearly all of the technology at Orbis has been built from scratch by our teams of software developers.
Working at Orbis
We’re a company with a flat management structure and a firm commitment to our core values. We believe that group success is driven by the efforts of individuals and that doing good work to create value for our clients is more important than fancy job titles. That’s why, from day one, we treat everyone as an integral member of the team and give each person the opportunity to do work that has real impact – no matter if they’re just here for the summer, or are joining full time.
We work hard to do things right, but we also like to make time for fun and to appreciate each other’s company. Lunchtime soccer games, ping pong tournaments, birthday cake, paintball, snowshoeing, dragon boat racing, watching baseball with field-side seats and barbeque and Friday happy hours are just a snapshot of some of the fun stuff we do.
