Employer Profile

Akuna Capital is an innovative trading firm with a strong focus on

collaboration, cutting-edge technology, data-driven solutions and

automation. We specialise in providing liquidity as an options market

maker – meaning we are committed to providing competitive quotes

that we are willing to both buy and sell. To do this successfully we

design and implement our own low latency technologies, trading

strategies and mathematical models.


At Akuna we pride ourselves in having a flat structure, where the best idea wins.


Our Founding Partners, including our CEO Andrew Killion, first conceptualised Akuna in their hometown of Sydney, Australia. They opened our first office in 2011 in Chicago, the heart of the derivatives & options industry. Akuna then expanded to Sydney in 2018 to be the center of our Asian trading operations. We are currently trading HK, Korea, cryptocurrencies and US night markets, and are excited for expansions into all the major Asian exchanges. We also have offices in Shanghai, London and Boston.    


Our Sydney office has a start-up feel with around 200 people, which means you really get to know the team! If you enjoy being part of smart, driven teams with real challenges to solve - Akuna could be the place for you!
