Sanjib Sahoo directs all aspects of information technology for tradeMONSTER, an online brokerage company that specializes in options trading for the self-directed investor. He has been with tradeMONSTER since it was founded in 2008, and was the architect of its award winning brokerage technology platform. During his tenure at tradeMONSTER, he led the entire technology brokerage platform which is now rated as one of the top 2 trading companies in North America and also the top options trading platform nationally by Barron’s.
As CTO and CIO, Sahoo oversees software development, quality assurance, production support and hardware, and network infrastructure. He is also a member of the senior executive team. In June 2013, tradeMONSTER launched the first HTML5-based iPad app in the online brokerage industry, offering a full range of trading tools. Sahoo’s hybrid approach of designing a HTML5-based app contained in a iOS wrapper enabled the creation of an app more powerful than the standard iOS framework allows. As a leader, he strongly focuses on aligning the IT initiatives with the company’s strategic goals while working within budgetary and time constraints.
