What you can expect when developing a trading applications with us


    For developing a trading software we use agile methodologies. By default we follow Scrum or Scrumban approaches. We work in short (usually bi-weekly) cycles and maintain constant communication with a customer. Transparency is one of Empirica’s core values. That’s why our clients have access to all the tools needed to track the project’s progress. And that’s why we hold daily and weekly meetings to make sure everyone’s in the loop.

  • MVP

    Our basic approach is convincing the customer to build MVP (working prototype) in a two to three months. This allows us to provide the first production release of a trading system. Every two weeks the customer will get a product increment and won’t freeze money for long-term product development.


    Every project managed by us has a project manager, a quality assurance specialist (QA), backend and frontend developers. To keep the highest standards of performance, reliability and scalability all our projects are supervised personally by our CTO.  He acts as Chief Architect for our customers using his 20 years experience in trading systems development.
