Kaiju Capital Management (Kaiju) is a small- to medium-sized Hedge Fund. We are a fully-remote company and have experienced significant growth in the last 8-12 months.
The Technology division comprises most of the Kaiju staff and is divided into 2 main teams: AI and Engineering. The Technology division is responsible for building and maintaining internal web-based applications, bespoke AI models, and working closely with the Trading team to find, create, and manage trading opportunities and strategies.
Our unique and proprietary web-applications and AI models have allowed us to not only have an incredibly well-organized and risk-balanced portfolio, but also to thrive during severe market downturns, such as the COVID-19 market sell-off in March 2020.
