PEAK6 Tech Experience

An internship tailored just for you — a smart, ambitious woman looking to break the mold
We know about the tech industry’s reputation for being too male-driven (Hello, Silicon Valley), and even more so within the financial sector. To us, investing in women is a solid strategy. That’s because we know women make outstanding developers, but there’s just not a lot of female technologists in the field (yet). But we’re looking to change that. Starting with you!

What you can expect

The PEAK6 Tech Experience will introduce you to the basics of real-world software development and help you develop key skills that you’ll leverage throughout your career. You will explore unique solutions and try new ideas that will benefit our trading business and investment companies while working on current projects with the firm.

You will be a part of a fast-paced, invigorating environment that offers new challenges every day. You’ll have an opportunity to interact and collaborate with our developers and technologists on a daily basis. So you can experience first-hand the level of collaboration and teamwork our tech team embraces.

We’re looking for students who:
