PEAK6 is a leading investment firm headquartered in Chicago. More than 20 years ago, we were one of the first firms to develop sophisticated proprietary technology in our trading business. Today, we leverage our technical ingenuity and operational ability across a number of investment areas, spanning early- to mid-stage growth capital, operational control, trading, and sports management, with an eye toward providing value to the customer. Over the years, we have built and operated several leading financial technology firms and today our team includes a digital wealth clearinghouse, an outsource provider of flood insurance, a Premier League soccer team, a value investment arm, an incubation lab, and more.

  • Taking an active role in controlling expenses and inventory; treat company funds as your own

  • Serving as point person for maintenance visits, office construction projects, site surveys, etc. as needed by Facilities Manager
  • Developing detailed understanding of office layout and employee names + locations

 You’ll gain loads of experience in this role but before you do, you should have:

  • College Degree - preferred not required. 
  • 3+ years office management experience required; previous Facilities experience a plus
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office software (Outlook, Word, Excel, etc.)

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 projects are you most excited about?

The technology stack here at PEAK6 is incredibly diverse. We leverage many modern, open source technologies—such as Kubernetes and Kafka— on top of modern programming languages like Python and Go, which enables us to develop new and exciting solutions. We hold multiple Tech Days and Hackathons for employees to work on any idea or technology.
