An Insider's view of tastytrade

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We’re in a fast-paced industry, but no matter how busy people get, no one’s ever too busy to help a colleague out. We’re surrounded by smart, driven people and the collaboration amongst the teams is definitely the reason why we are constantly growing. Plus, there’s free food and puppies to get you through the day!

How does the company support your career growth?

tastytrade is a small group doing big things. Everywhere you look there’s a new major project getting off the ground, and it’s possible to have a real impact on any of them. Going from being one of thousands of devs for a huge corporation to one of a couple dozen has presented me with more opportunities to lead and grow than I ever had elsewhere.

Software Developer

What's something quirky about your company?

tastytrade allows for the full extension of my creative expression within the confines of a 'traditional' company. No one ever gets told that finance is funny. But here I get a multitude of chances every day to amplify my voice to create content across a variety of sources—print, digital, podcast—with the full support of my bosses. And that rocks.
