We look for people who aren’t afraid to take chances, who bet on themselves and do it with confidence. People that dream up big ideas and ways to execute them. Epic storytellers, nimble problem solvers, imaginative entrepreneurs and change-makers are all welcome.
100 Best Places to Work in Chicago
We’ve never been an “another day at the office” place to work, and we won’t start now. Which is why we’re taking a hybrid approach to remote and in-office work.
Our offices (in Chicago, Dallas, Belfast, beyond) are where the magic happens, where members with diverse backgrounds collaborate and inspire each other to innovate. We’ve worked hard to make returning to them safe and seriously worth the commute.
But we know traveling to an office isn’t the answer all the time. You might need to put your head down to produce work you’re proud of, or you may need more time at home to get the right work-life balance.
So we’re giving our employees the freedom to come into the office and connect with the team, and to give them the flexibility to work where they want the rest of the time.
OUR DEDICATION TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
Actions speak louder than words. Which is why, when we say diversity matters, we prove it.
Creating a culture where you can bring your whole self to work has always been a vital part of what makes PEAK6 the company it is. Our initiatives include:
We can’t wait to meet you. The whole you.
BRING YOUR IDEAS, WE'LL SHARE OUR EXPERIENCES
Collaboration and exploration help us grow together. You’ll find PEAK6 to be a supportive and challenging environment as you begin your career.
ENGINEERED TO EXCEL
As a Software Engineer at PEAK6, you’ll work in a fast-paced environment where every day is challenging, yet also completely rewarding. The route here isn’t like one you’ll find at other companies. We’ve worked hard to design a program that gets you working on projects across all of our lines of business so you will make a quicker impact.
TRAINING TURNED UP
At PEAK6, collaboration drives everything. You’ll be surrounded by some of tech’s sharpest minds and have access to them too. Our leaders are accessible and play an active part in your continued success. New possibilities are always on the rise and you’ll be able to work on a variety of projects.
TRADING, IT’S IN YOU
Passion isn’t something that’s taught, it’s just in you. As a Trading Associate at PEAK6, we look for candidates who have passion. It doesn’t even have to be a passion for the markets, although that’s a bonus. Risk takers, problem solvers, curiosity seekers and creators are all welcome.
LET’S LEARN TOGETHER
Our trading program is vastly different than others you might have experienced. For starters, you can come in with zero market experience and in fact, we prefer it that way. We’ll teach you everything you need to know and along the way, maybe you’ll show us a thing or two.
The program is 1.5 years, but you’ll be trading long before that, you’ll also have the opportunity to lead a trading team in as little as three years. You’ll learn how to make big bets, manage risk, code in Python and even build a training tool in under eight weeks.
OUR CORE VALUES
ACT BOLDLY WITH COURAGE
We challenge the status quo, lead by example and trust that others will follow.
BE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE
We are financially responsible for everything we do. From our acquisitions and business deals to our employees and our every day.
We use data to find new opportunities and take calculated risks.
OPERATE ETHICALLY WITH INTEGRITY
We always conduct ourselves ethically and with integrity.
Collaboration takes us places we might not have been able to go alone.
APPROACH EVERY DAY WITH CURIOSITY
We are curious without apology. If we’re not asking the questions, we’ll never get the answers.
“Technology makes it all possible. It’s the catalyst speeding our understanding, fueling our growth, and giving us an edge for over 22 years.”
