Senior Software Engineer, Treasury (Ruby/Clojure)

| Chicago

DRW is a technology-driven, diversified principal trading firm. We trade our own capital at our own risk, across a broad range of asset classes, instruments and strategies, in financial markets around the world. As the markets have evolved over the past 25 years, so has DRW – maximizing opportunities to include real estate, cryptoassets and venture capital. With nearly 900 employees at our Chicago headquarters and offices around the world, we work together to solve complex problems, challenge consensus and deliver meaningful results. It’s a place of high expectations, deep curiosity and thoughtful collaboration. 

DRW has an opening on its Treasury Development team. The Treasury developers focus on applications for calculating margin requirements, managing capital, and various reporting functions essential to the Treasury Department and across DRW. The Treasury team is small and new engineers will immediately be tasked with making meaningful contributions to our systems. The developers are required to work closely with the Treasury staff to create technical plans to solve pressing business problems.

At DRW we strive for an environment where technologists are free to pursue solutions to the problems of the business free from arbitrary management constraints and supported by excellent technical resources. All development teams at DRW believe in rapid deployment and feedback, automated testing, and cohesive, transparent, lightly-coupled service architectures.

  • Designing, programming, and testing a variety of applications
  • Working with multiple languages, platforms, and operating systems, particularly Ruby, Clojure, Linux

  • Working on legacy code as well as green field development
  • DevOps tooling and process
  • Providing on-call support as needed
  • Collaborating with various software teams, the IT department, trading desks, and other business units

  • Financial technology and systems
  • Front and back-end development experience
  • Rails, Java, C/C++, Git

An Insider's view of DRW

How does your team reward individual success?

Our team acknowledges individual success and provides an environment to further new ideas. The team then ensures higher management is aware of your contribution. These accomplishments become part of the individual’s and team’s record at the end of the year. This approach I believe has led to a lot of innovations on my team.

Network Engineer

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

During my internship in Chicago, I built models in python, ones that are still used on that desk today. The next summer, I returned as a full-time trading analyst and picked up right where I left off. I focus on systematic research and the development and execution of new strategies for the foreign exchange (FX) options desk in Chicago.

Alex

Quantitative Trading Researcher

What are some things you learned at the company?

We’re free to choose the technology stack that best solves each individual problem, so the learning happens project to project. I started programming in C#, but changing teams exposed me to a new suite of languages that I’m now working in regularly

Carissa

Software Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Working on the risk team, I combine the principles of risk management and computer science. I help direct how we take risk across the organization, and ensure reliability with the use of really innovative tech.

Brawnski

Software Engineer

What are some social events your company does?

DRW is not all work, all the time. We offer a number of activities and events for all interests, like monthly wine tastings, sports leagues, hobby clubs and movie outings to name a few.
