About QuantRocket


QuantRocket is an independent software company whose mission is to provide the best available trading software for data-driven traders — software that is highly performant, reliable, and customizable to a diverse range of trading styles, while also being much more intuitive and user-friendly than typical professional trading software.


QuantRocket caters to a mix of professional traders and sophisticated nonprofessionals. QuantRocket's professional customers are mostly portfolio managers and hedge funds; its nonprofessional customers are mostly software developers who trade on the side.


Brian Stanley is the founder and principal of QuantRocket. A software developer with a background building scalable applications and big data ETL pipelines, Brian is a polymath who wears many hats to run the business. He operates as a one-person company, relying extensively on automation, outsourcing, partnerships, leveraging of third-party tools, and scalable decision-making to accomplish individually what other companies require large teams to achieve. He prefers running the business alone as a matter of temperament, having decided in his corporate career as an engineering manager that "the worst thing is to have a boss, and the second worst thing is to be a boss." He has avoided outside funding (not wanting to forfeit decision-making control) and operates QuantRocket like a traditional small business — ensuring expenses stay below revenues. His slow-and-steady business philosophy has allowed QuantRocket to survive and flourish as larger, VC-backed competitors have faltered and failed.
