We’re not defined by one industry or market. We’re traders and investors, we’re dreamers and flood insurance transformers. We own sports teams both on the field and on the monitor. We are entrepreneurs who are ambitious and disciplined, making things better for our customers, our employees and ourselves.
Over 20 years ago, co-founders Jenny Just and Matt Hulsizer transformed what were once the fiercely competitive manual trading pits at the Chicago Board of Trade into collaborative spaces filled with just as much passion and excitement. Today, it’s a space brimming with ideas, possibility, art and design. Together, our team has built industry-leading companies like PEAK6 Capital Management and OptionsHouse, while also stepping outside of their comfort zones by acquiring new endeavors like esports team Evil Geniuses. We have carved out an active culture where unique perspectives thrive and have built an environment where ideas are shared, pressure-tested and brought to life. It’s a place where communication is open, collaboration is key and new possibilities are always right in front of you.
Headquartered in the Chicago Board of Trade, PEAK6 is not your typical investment firm. While options trading got us our start and still powers our center, we quickly realized that our vision was to embrace and empower today’s consumer through utilizing technology, simplifying processes, improving performance and creating new wealth.
At our core, we’re technologists, investors and entrepreneurs. Yes, you can be all three. It’s this combination that lets us provide a uniquely broad vision of how our team and technology can create the most value. We do it with speed, conviction and capital to ensure customers’ success.
Technology drives our decision making and also allows us to create new opportunities that best serve customers. We bring our own funding, a highly-ambitious culture and our team of operators to execute successfully.
Opportunities are abundant at PEAK6. If you look around, you’ll find businesses that run the gamut from finance to esports to some things we can’t even tell you about. One thing we can tell you is you’ll never be bored. We’re constantly pursuing new ideas and placing big bets. If you’re up for it, no day will be the same, no project will feel familiar and you’ll always be on the cusp of something new.
The opportunities here are unlike anywhere else you may have been. Having an eagerness to learn and grow isn’t just part of the culture, it IS the culture. Where you start your career isn’t necessarily where you’ll end up and where you go after that is up to you. Here, you work with other teams, get involved with new projects and explore other areas of interest. You’ll have access to training, resources and leadership. Our leaders are actually on site and might even sit super close by, so you’ll always be surrounded with support. At PEAK6, broadening your knowledge, sharpening your skill set and unlocking future opportunities isn’t just something that’s talked about, it actually happens.
Dreamers, status-quo pushers and change-makers apply here. If you’re something different, that works too. Take a look at our open positions, there might be a spot for you.
