The path to a career in trading isn’t always an obvious one. In fact, some of our best traders weren’t planning on becoming traders. They had plans to be engineers, consultants, mathematicians, economists, investment bankers, or work on another side of the financial world. What they did have in common, however, was an insatiable curiosity, an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to win. They’re problem solvers and analytical whizzes who love taking calculated risks and beating the odds.

We encourage innovative thinking and reward fresh ideas.

PEAK6 Capital Management (CapMan) is a unique trading firm operating in its own way. The CapMan Core Values are what we look for in our traders because it is these values that make our traders — and our firm — successful.
There’s not really this sense of being micro-managed … it’s really around this value of proving out your ideas, and how good they are and how well they fit the need that has been established.
Trading on a team lets you play to your strengths and enjoy what you’re doing every day. And when you’re surrounded by really smart people, you’re going to get better every day too.
If you’re in the technology business at PEAK6, you could be moved around to any brand new idea and it could be a brand new business from the ground-up. It’s like all the benefits of the start-up scene on the West Coast, but you have this hugely successful firm with the capital to support these kind of things.
