How Riskfuel is Spending 55% Less Time Onboarding New Employees

Swimm streamlines code documentation, linking the code and making it very convenient. This has been critical for ensuring internal docs around the ecosystem stay updated.
Jordan Weir, Senior Software Engineer Riskfuel

Overview:

Based in Toronto, Canada, Riskfuel was founded in 2019 to solve the unique challenges faced by finance teams today. Using Riskfuels proprietary software, banks and insurance companies can accelerate their existing quantitative models, enabling real-time risk management for complex derivatives at a fraction of their current costs.

Challenge:

Getting the growing Riskfuel’s team effectively onboarded - up and running to work productively in their ecosystem.

Riskfuels cutting-edge solution requires a team with diverse backgrounds, all working together to help businesses manage risks. The team includes high-level experts in DevOps, software engineering, statistics, quant finance, and machine learning.

For Riskfuels team, the lack of real-time updates meant they could never trust that they were getting the most up-to-date code documentation. With so many teams bringing different expertise to the same projects, Riskfuel struggled to keep everyone up to speed.

The Solution:

Swimm has made it easy for Riskfuel’s team to both organize and speed up onboarding while also ensuring that all documentation around the ecosystem always stays updated.


Swimm has been critical for ensuring internal docs around the ecosystem stay updated. As a 20-person company, no one wants to play the role of code archivist. Swimm automates that task to keep things running smoothly. - Jordan, Senior Software Engineer, Riskfuel

The Results:

Faster onboarding, better processes and searchable repositories.

In 2021, Riskfuel partnered with Swimm to create a centralized repository for all its documentation and has seen the benefits, thanks to the built-in conveniences of the Swimm platform. Swimm has empowered the team to establish a culture of documentation that wastes less time and syncs docs with the codebase.

Riskfuel’s team reports spending 55% less time on onboarding needs, while also ensuring that all documentation around the ecosystem always stays updated.
