Who you are:

  • 2-3 years of professional experience as a Developer
  • 2 years of React experience in complex projects
  • Design experience a plus

  • Ability to take ownership and work without much guidance


Team Perks:

  • Dog-friendly office
  • In-building gym
  • Park-like roof with games and herb-garden
  • CTA stop a block away, Shuttle to/from Metra
  • Monthly dev outings (e.g. escape rooms, movie nights, ax-throwing, laser tag, bowling, etc.)
  • Located in the West Loop, Chicago's growing center of tech, great cuisine, and high-end bars

 

Our Company:

The tastytrade family of companies (tastytrade, tastyworks, dough, quiet foundation, and The Small Exchange) empowers individual investors by providing educational media, intuitive and powerful trading software, high-speed order execution, innovative derivatives products, and portfolio guidance. The diversity of our offerings and the technology that powers them provide our engineers with exposure to a broad set of tools and the opportunity to dig deep into specific problems. We are an ideal environment for those who are self-motivated, engineering-focused, pragmatic, and who truly enjoy creating and operating large, highly available, and performant systems. Our team is lean at roughly 40 members and we follow a management philosophy that values the autonomy of our engineers.

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 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.
