Software Engineer, Surveillance at DRW
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 over 1,000 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 needs your help solving problems no one has ever solved.
You've probably heard that from job ads before.
Maybe you’ve also read about playing ping pong and wearing jeans to work. You can do all of that at DRW, but that's not why you should work here.
You should work at DRW because here you will be free to make things. Seriously. What do you want to make? Come make it.
That's not to say that you'll be whiteboarding all day - job #1 will be creating and maintaining a set of highly visible and highly valuable tools. You'll also support a few legacy systems until we can finish migrating them.
DRW is special because what we want from you is not 4-6 years of Java experience, optimized linked list sorting, or perfected agile methodologies. We want your ideas - we want you to challenge the way we are doing things.
DRW is a principal trading firm. We make money by being smart about what we buy and sell. We use our own capital – no customers or investors. That might seem unusual at first, but you’ll find that it’s pretty awesome.
Without external customers, you'll be able to change things that aren't working. That API endpoint you maintain because someone in Bend, OR keeps hitting it at 2 am - it's gone. That idea you have for ingesting data in HBase coprocessors - go do it. If it works, it stays.
As an Engineer on the Compliance team, you'll work with Compliance Officers to make sure that our (incredibly important) regulatory requirements are fulfilled. You'll experiment with emerging technologies to monitor trading behaviors. You’ll wrestle a mountain of data into human understandable insights.
What we have:
- A greenfield platform written in Elixir.
- Legacy systems in C# and Python.
- Somewhere between a heap and a gaggle of data.
- A team of people who love solving problems.
What we are looking for from you:
- You have good ideas and you readily share them.
- You get things done.
- You like working on a team.
- You like challenges.
