Technology Experience
Trading Experience Program Logo

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 technologist in the field (yet). But we’re looking to change that. Starting with you!

What you can expect

The PEAK6 Technology Experience will introduce you to the basics of real-world software development, show you how empowering it can be, 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 financial services, trading businesses, and investment companies while working on current projects within the firm.

You will be a part of a fast-paced, invigorating environment that offers new challenges every day. Where you work closely with the end user, so the design-develop-deploy cycle is succinct, and the team thrives on collaboration and the ability to count on one another to get things done.

We’re looking for students who:
