Trading Careers

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.

As a successful proprietary trading firm, we offer incredible opportunities for smart, entrepreneurial team players. We give you the training and the tools to put your best ideas into market. We encourage innovative thinking and reward fresh ideas. Most importantly, we give you a chance to grow, learn and build a successful career surrounded by incredibly smart people who love what they do. Plus, it’s exciting and thrilling, because no two days in the market are the same.

Tech Careers

The financial industry isn’t the first place most software developers and engineers look for a career in technology. But the financial world has emerged as a leading industry for innovative, breakthrough technology solutions. Investment and trading firms now rely on incredibly sophisticated, leading-edge technology to stay ahead of the markets and power their businesses. There’s more opportunity than ever for brilliant minds to revolutionize the industry with brilliant solutions.
