Powerful Trading Solutions.

We are team of talented C++/FPGA Technologists

From the beginning, we treat our clients with hard work and attention to detail.

Vitorian LLC was created in April 2011 with the mission of creating innovative Fintech solutions with no tradeoffs to quality or robustness. We believe that excellence is paramount and although quick-to-market business strategies may win during bull times, we will eventually benefit from flight to quality.

Trading technology is an area that can be classified as mission critical since any failure can and likely will lead to large financial losses. We treat any application we write as an avionics package, where our clients are our passengers.

Some of the distinctive differences between us and the Fintech competition are:

  • Although we used Agile in the past, today we found that a mix of Feature-driven development combined with Classic Waterfall produces the best results in a mission critical environment.
  • We use strict development standards inpired on NASA's JPL Power of Ten and more strictly on industry standards as MISRA and AutoSAR.
  • We developed a unique development culture that focuses on personal accountability. Every developer owns their feature or bug sub-project from analysis to production. Surprisingly, this leads to less development noise, as well as fingerpointing-free environment .

Our headquarters in Northbrook, IL (right) is located at an arm's length from the Metra, making it fast and convenient to commute to the Union Station, in the heart of Chicago's financial center.

Check our Services

C++ Development

With over 25 years of experience in high performance computing in C++ and Modern C++, our team is prepared to build ultra low latency software in any standards of your choice (C++11, C++14, C++17, C++20) that will challenge the best firms in the market.

Additionally, we work with a team of reliable, hard screened, independent software engineers all over the world to provide high-quality C++, GPU and FPGA development services at hourly rates starting at US$200/hr.

FPGA Development

We deliver special projects on classical Vivado workflow but High-Level Synthesis (HLS) is our bread-and-butter. We have extensive expertise on the Alveo and Versal datacenter accelerator platforms.

Web/Backend Development

The web is a mandatory layer that presents our core server technologies to humans for consumption. Landing pages and dashboards are our main focus.

Development Consulting

We offer traditional technical team management consulting for firms who do not have a senior person onboard with experience in financial markets or in the technology at hand.

Hiring Assistance

We have helped firms to attract and shortlist highly technical candidates from all over the world. Our smash-hit Substack publication Low Latency Trading Insights has over 4,000 subscribers from 35 countries and hundreds of paid subscribers.

Technical Writing

Technical writing, in particular documentation, is a very challenging and disliked process for most developers. Within our coding expertise of C++/FPGA we can help lightly refactor and document legacy or new code to the highest standards.

Our numbers speak for themselves

They are still low, especially if compared to large consulting companies like McKinsey but our work is honest and carry a substantial amount of attention to detail and experience.

Countries where we currently have outstanding projects: USA, India, Brazil.

"superb content"

Deeptendu Santra

Machine Learning Engineer at Unify, MLE @ Unify.ai | GSOC'22 @ Julia, Mitacs GRI'22 @ QueensU

I've had the pleasure of following Henrique's takes on C++ on this platform, and I'm consistently amazed by his depth of knowledge. His ability to break down complex C++ concepts into relatable and understandable insights is nothing short of impressive. On his Substack, every article is a deep dive, meticulously researched and supported by practical experiments and code. It’s rare to find someone who combines such technical expertise with the ability to communicate it so effectively. Although I haven’t worked much with Henrique, his reputation in designing cutting-edge, low latency systems is well-known and speaks volumes about his skill and experience.
