To solve climate change, wealth inequality, supply chain stability, and national security we must change how our global supply chains work. Altana is a Trusted Commerce Platform built on a shared source of truth for the global supply chain. The purpose of Altana is to enable resilient, sustainable, secure, and inclusive global commerce: Globalization 2.0. 


We have built a layer of shared intelligence across the world’s supply chain information: a living map of trillions of dollars of B2B commercial activity, covering 400M companies connected by billions of shipments. This knowledge graph powers Altana’s Trusted Commerce Platform - the Altana Atlas - which, after only three years since founding, is already used by many of the world’s most important governments, enterprises, and logistics providers.


Our product suite enables our customers to gain unprecedented visibility, benefit from shared artificial intelligence across a federated network of data, and interact across the network through a shared source of truth. We help our customers to build and manage trusted global supply chains.

The Financial Services team is looking for talented Financial Engineers to help execute this vision.

  • Provide descriptive, predictive and prescriptive guidance on financial risks to businesses and their supplier networks
  • Generate insights through predictive scoring, simulation, causal analysis, and other relevant modeling approaches to support tactical and strategic decisions about financial risk management
  • Create probabilistic models of low frequency, high severity events and deliver them in the context required for supporting business decisions 
  • Use time-based system analysis and forecasting to understand past performance and estimate potential outcomes under a range of scenarios
  • Identify risk profiles and their relationships to factors that contribute to risk
  • Deliver solutions for portfolio optimization based on risk tolerance
