Insider's spotlight

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.

Kumbi

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.
