An Insider's view of Wolverine Trading

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

Wolverines know how to work hard and play hard! Work-life balance is a core component of our culture. We believe you cannot be truly satisfied at work if you do not make time for yourself. By 5pm our office is mostly empty and you will not see the lights on over the weekend. Our generous vacation package allows us time to unwind or go explore!

Sarah Mueller

Recruiting Manager

What does your typical day look like?

At Wolverine, we are on the cutting edge of big data technology and low latency trading. My day-to-day work involves optimizing system speed to the nanosecond while training statistical models on data sets that grow by billions of rows per day. We are always following the data that indicates the largest impact, so no two days are ever the same.

Abigail LaPier

Quantitative Analyst

How does the company support your career growth?

I started at Wolverine fresh out of college. What I discovered was a technology driven culture that encouraged me to explore. Wolverine has opened doors to places I didn’t even know existed. And no one stands in the way of a good idea.
