An Insider's view of NinjaTrader

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a "Rep of the Month" award for individual team members to be recognized for their hard work (and that comes with a nice monetary bonus!) There's zero ambiguity if you're doing a good job. Our team leads hype us up and thank us every day for a job well done. We feel appreciated and everyone's contributions are valued.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Much of my own development within the organization has been aided by how easily accessible our leadership team has always been. I try to model my own actions around those same principles by making sure that not only do I always have an open door but that I always make time, even if I am busy, to meet with the team when they need me.

What are some social events your company does?

Each week, we have a different themed event that allows us to share our interests with our coworkers. We’ve done pasta making, trivia night, board game night and so much more. It's a great way to connect with coworkers that you do not regularly interact with during work and provide space and time to get to know people outside of working hours.
