Optiver Supports Open Source Scientific Computing through NumFOCUS Corporate Sponsorship
“At Optiver we use NumFOCUS sponsored open source projects every day”
“At Optiver we use NumFOCUS sponsored open source projects every day,” said Sam Gibson, IT Team Lead at Optiver. “From traders to researchers and engineers, we make data-driven decisions our top priority.”
Optiver was originally started in Amsterdam, and NumFOCUS has enjoyed Optiver’s support as a sponsor of the PyData Amsterdam conference since the first event in 2016. We are delighted to welcome Optiver as an official NumFOCUS Corporate Sponsor. Optiver understands the importance of sustaining the open source projects that power their business:
“The open and collaborative nature of these projects has changed the face of data science in only a few years,” said Gibson. “Because of this, we’re excited to have the opportunity to ensure that the quality OSS (open source software) that we love is supported into the future for everyone, and we’re proud to sponsor NumFOCUS.”
