Company Overview

Wildwood Trading is a new trading firm based in San Francisco. We specialize in algorithmic trading of listed options on financial exchanges. By providing a bid and offer in the contracts we trade, we help to add liquidity and reduce transaction costs in the marketplace.

Our Expertise

Technology and a disciplined approach to trading are at the heart and soul of what we do.

Technology

We recognize that technology is not just a component of our businesses, it IS our business. From trading algorithms to risk management to research, technology sits at the heart of everything we do. And since markets change all the time, it’s not just a matter of having great technology now, but knowing how to build and improve it for the future.

Discipline

Market making requires discipline. We know that our success doesn’t come from a single great idea, algorithm, or trade, but rather a series of small wins. On a daily basis, we search for opportunities and use a scientific approach to assessing risk and reward. We move quickly but cautiously, and promote a culture of curiosity, research, and self-questioning.

Our Values

At Wildwood, we are passionate about what we do. We enjoy being challenged, solving hard and interesting problems, and collaborating with people we admire and respect. We are proud of what we build yet always seeking to improve. We love the entrepreneurial feel of working at a startup and enjoy seeing our work directly contribute to our company’s success. Wildwood is nothing without its people, and we search rigorously for the best and brightest to join our team.
