What are PEAK6 Perks + Benefits

PEAK6 Benefits Overview

At PEAK6, you’ll find flexibility with our work-life balance, a collaborative spirit and the ability to cater to your strengths while having opportunities to cultivate new ones.

PEAK6 is committed to addressing barriers to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In June of 2020, PEAK6 created Fintech in Action, a coalition dedicated to Black inclusion in finance and fintech. As part of Fintech in Action we’ve partnered with Greenwood Project, a non-profit that introduces Black and other minority high school and college students to careers in the financial industry with paid summer internships, educational field trips and its summer Financial Institute.

Additionally, PEAK6 established Poker Power, a company led by women for women with the goal of teaching one million women how to play the game of poker—and the skills required to play that also predict success in work and in life. Through a global network of clubs, tournaments and corporate events, Poker Power utilizes gameplay (not gambling) to help women build confidence, challenge the status quo, learn strategy and assess risk in a fun, supportive, safe-to-fail environment. By empowering women with these skills, the organization plans to change the future for generations to come.

An Insider's view of PEAK6

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

This is very important and luckily, we feel it’s something attainable for our employees. We have a generous time off policy, in addition to other affiliated vacation perks and leave benefits.
For example, to help employees save time on conventional tasks, we offer complementary services in the office, such as manicures, massages, and yoga classes.

Courtney Kuhnen

Human Resources Business Partner

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our developers are also a part of the decision-making process. We help our technologists take an interest in the business side of things - they know how the end product should work. Our developers know how the traders are going to use a product and after a product is delivered, the developer stays involved – making sure that things work efficently.

Rishi Kamath

QA Development Lead

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

Paul Whalen

Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

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.

Luke Peeler

Software Engineer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I like working at PEAK6 because there’s always something exciting to work on and I’m always learning something new. It’s also a privilege to work with so many smart people that are never hesitant to act as mentors. Lastly, PEAK6 gives me the opportunity to wear many different hats – I’m never restricted to working on just one thing.
