We make software that predicts cool stuff.

Pit Rho combines the best of computer science, statistics, and machine learning to solve interesting problems and predict really cool stuff. We develop software that computes the optimal strategy for NASCAR drivers, in real-time. We write algorithms that generate the optimal fantasy team lineups for multiple sports (and have helped get fantasy players to #1 out of 200,000 NASCAR Fantasy Live entries). We have models that predict the value of media rights based on hundreds of data sources.

We are big time nerds and like to solve real-world problems - we sit squarely at the intersection of software development, predictive modeling, and data visualization. Some of our favorite tech ingredients at the moment:
