The LEIBOX project has its roots from a group of software engineers led by John Strom at Stanford, Symbolic Systems. The project set out to supply world-class software platforms that now are powering most of the western world to more accurately track data. During 2017 John Strom and a selected team of engineers relocated to Switzerland and started working on a spinoff focusing on entities participating in financial transactions. The direction to utilize the Global LEI System started in late 2019.
In December 2019 the founding engineering team elected Alexander Karp as transitional Chairman of the Board to be responsible for upholding LEIBOX interests globally towards a Paperless Future.
Small Teams, unlimited Imagination, there are no leashes at LEIBOX. We work on flat, decentralized teams, each with decision-making authority, and we, all have the freedom to approach, own, and solve problems creatively. We have designed this path over the more traditional hierarchy because it works more often than not
We view software as a means of effecting positive change in the world, not as an end unto itself. Our mission is towards a more transparent and efficient world. We do this by writing software that enables useful analysis against complicated, data-driven problems. Our work is incredibly complex, touching on computer science, data science, software engineering, public policy, good governance, large-scale distributed systems, user behaviour, and efficient use of resources to name a few.
Given the critical work performed on our platforms, information security is our lifeblood. Our industry-leading team works tirelessly to stay ahead of adversaries by hunting for sophisticated threats, thwarting changes in their tactics, and immediately eradicating risks.
