An Insider's view of PEAK6 Investments

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Data in finance is plentiful. Sometimes too plentiful and poor quality. These problems comprise a significant technical challenge in designing fast, clever, yet readable solutions. We work with our teams to identify the right breadth of tools to reason with the data, along with managing the volume of data that streams in like a firehose.

How does the company support your career growth?

We have a big focus on career growth, especially for those in technology. Because of our size, there are opportunities to prove yourself and rapidly increase your responsibility on a team. And because of Peak6’s culture of constantly trying new things, there are often opportunities to get in at the ground floor of new ventures in a leadership role

We organize “tech days” where employees are encouraged to work on tech projects of their choosing. Projects have ranged from mobile apps to Sega emulators to workflow improvements for our developers. Recently, tech days took the form of a more formal hackathon, in which technologists and traders teamed up to prototype several new trading tools.
